Treatment methods

Clinic for Orthopaedics and Accident Surgery: Spinal Column Department

The Spinal Department covers a comprehensive spectrum of conservative and surgical treatment methods. You can learn about the key treatments here.

The treatment methods at a glance:
Conservative treatment

Conservative treatment is arranged following a referral or appointment via our clinic. Indications for inpatient conservative treatment include pain syndromes affecting the spine following exhaustive outpatient treatment or acute, severe and immobilising pain.

More information.


Facet denervation

With severe back pain and if there are already signs of wear and tear in the small joints of the spine, facet denervation (obliteration of the small spinal joints) is an established method for reducing pain. Facet infiltration is carried out in advance using a local anaesthetic.

More information.


Vertebroplasty / kyphoplasty

Vertebroplasty and balloon kyphoplasty have become established methods for treating vertebral fractures caused by osteoporotic bones. They usually provide rapid pain relief and therefore help the patient to mobilise better.

Microscope-Assisted Percutaneous Nucleotomy

This is a special access technique using a telescopic tube system. The operation is carried out under a surgical microscope. The skin incision can be reduced to one or two centimetres.

Microscope-Assisted Percutaneous Decompression

This is a special access technique using a telescopic tube system. The operation is carried out under a surgical microscope. The skin incision can be reduced to one or two centimetres.

More information.


Cervical spine disc prosthesis

A movement-preserving treatment option for slipped discs and bony stenosis of the cervical spine. The preserved mobility of the segment must be demonstrated before this treatment is carried out.

More information.


Lumbar disc prosthesis

The implantation of a disc prosthesis is very rare. Disc prosthesis is used in our department if the back pain is clearly being caused by changes in the disc compartment (discogenic back pain) and all conservative measures have been exhausted.

More information.


Cervical decompression and fusion

A decompressing and fusing treatment option for slipped discs and bony stenosis of the cervical spine. The main indications for decompression and fusion are root irritation syndromes with one-sided or bilateral arm pain, potential or existing damage to the cervical spinal cord and instabilities.

More information.


Corrective spondylodesis

The aim of this operation is to correct curvature and rotation of the spine, provided the anatomical features of the crooked spine can accommodate this.
