Modern lifestyle is one of the factors causing problems with the spine. Damage to the spine caused by trauma, accidents, deformities and degenerative changes also significantly reduce the patient's quality of life. Spine treatment in Germany includes a wide range of diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical methods performed at a highly professional level.
German medicine occupies one of the leading positions in the world for the treatment of all types of spinal conditions. Spine treatment in Germany is a perfect combination of extensive experience of German surgeons, modern technologies and the highest level of safety.
Spinal injections can be performed to diagnose spinal diseases, identify their causes and determine the exact location of the pain. Spinal injections serve both for the diagnosis of diseases and for its therapy, reducing the sensation of pain and relieving the irritation of spinal structures. The introduction of local painkillers and anti-inflammatory agents using injection needles makes the infiltration of surrounding tissues, muscles, vertebral and sacroiliac joints, nerve roots possible and gives a long lasting therapeutic effect.
The latest examination methods and modern diagnostic equipment help the doctor to clearly identify the lesions of the spinal column. The most important diagnostic methods are:
- Multifunctional X-ray diagnostics with image amplifiers
- Rasterstereography to measure the angle of spinal curvature
- Computed tomography
- Magnetic resonance imaging with three-dimensional image reconstruction
Myelography is an injection of contrast agent into the space near the spinal cord, filled with liquid. Later an X-ray imaging is performed giving complete information about the narrowing of nerve structures.
As with myelography, the discography requires an injection of a contrast agent into the area of the intervertebral cartilages of the affected spinal segment. X-ray images obtained during the discography allow doctors to assess the condition of the intervertebral discs and to identify the causes of the back pain.
Following the results of a complete and thorough examination of the patient, physicians develop individual treatment strategies. Complex surgical operations in Germany are conducted in new and safe facilities, the technical equipment of operating rooms in German clinics is also in line with modern technical standards.
Spine treatment in Germany means sparing operating techniques and quick results
German medicine provides fast and successful treatment of patients with spinal diseases. Surgical treatment of the spine in Germany is carried out only in the most extreme cases – only when it really is necessary. When performing surgical interventions, modern medicine in Germany pays special attention to limiting the risk of possible complications. A special preference is given to minimally invasive operating techniques that require only small incisions. The use of a unique ultra-modern operating microscopes ensures a sparing intervention into tissue structures and ensures the safety of the procedure. The main advantage of the method is the rapid recovery of the patient after the surgical intervention and the ability to tolerate physical activity.
In the event when minimally invasive operations are impossible, German clinics will offer you other surgical techniques, specially designed according to the character of your disease. Patients are constantly monitored by experienced doctors, orthopedists, anesthesiologists, physiotherapists and nursing staff who support patients at all stages on the way to recovery.
Treatment of herniated discs in Germany is performed using minimally invasive endoscopic surgery or microsurgical techniques, depending on the type and localization of the hernia. In many cases, the treatment of herniated discs is successfully carried out with the help of targeted injections, which are introduced under X-ray control, and do not require surgery.
