Hirslanden Clinic Belair Schaffhausen
Department of Spine Surgery (193)
Specialized in: neurosurgery
Spinal surgery covers a wide range of diseases and injuries of the spine, including neurosurgery. Rheumatology is a specialty dealing with diseases and functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system. They include inflammation of bones, joints and muscles (e.g., rheumatism, arthritis, or osteoporosis), as well as of internal organs and nerve systems.
The spine surgeons work closely with rheumatologists. This team is convinced that modern spinal surgery and rheumatology can be successful only through the cooperation of doctors of various specialties for interdisciplinary diagnosis, as well as experienced surgeons, since the cooperation is an essential condition for making an accurate diagnosis and performing a successful surgery. All the results of diagnosis are discussed, and the further course of treatment is determined with participation of all team members (a conservatively treating physician, a spine surgeon, sometimes a neurologist, a psychotherapist and a family doctor). Since 2005, Klinik Belair has cantonal mandate to conduct spine surgeries. This allows patients with all classes of insurance to be treated in accordance with interdisciplinary approach and operated at the Klinik Belair.
