About the department keyboard_arrow_down

Pain in the back is one of the most frequent reasons why people seek medical assistance. Unfortunately, in some cases surgical intervention cannot be avoided. In our clinic, neurosurgery is a highly developed branch of medicine. To cure pain in the back, we rely on the experience and knowledge of the world-renowned neurosurgeons, team of experienced anesthesiologists as well as the latest technologies. Intervertebral herniation can occur, among others, due to the prolonged sitting at the computer. If non-surgical methods do not give any positive result, the patient must undergo a surgery for herniated disc. Our neurosurgeons and anesthesiologists use only advanced technologies and techniques that allow the patient to quickly return to his or her normal life.
