About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Spine Surgery at the HELIOS Hospital Hildesheim covers the entire spectrum of spine surgery, as well as neurosurgical services for accidents (e.g. acute brain hemorrhages). The Department under the direction of Dr. med. Thomas Günther treats over 1,500 inpatients and almost 6,000 outpatients. There are 30 available beds. Close interdisciplinary cooperation with Surgery, Anesthesiology, Internal Medicine and Radiology is an integral part of the Department’s work.

The service range in the field of spine surgery covers all injuries, tumorous changes in the bones, metastases, herniated discs and nerve root compression, as well as spinal cord compression in each part of the spine – from skull to cervical spine and up to the sacrococcygeal region. An essential importance is given to the interdisciplinary cooperation with Oncology, Gynecology and Radiation Therapy at the HELIOS Klinikum Hildesheim. These can assist in the treatment of each patient, if necessary, and especially in the management of spine metastases. In addition, the Department actively uses intraoperative neuromonitoring. In cooperation with Thoracic and Abdominal Surgery, the Department also uses open and minimally invasive techniques. 

Another key focus of the Department under the direction of Dr. med. Thomas Günther is intervertebral disc surgery. This involves the use of all treatments for both cervical and lumbar spine. The doctors also have in their arsenal minimally invasive procedures, such as endoscopic discectomy or removal of sequestra, nucleoplasty and replacement of intervertebral discs. The preference is given to microsurgical techniques. Depending on the indications and the disease, there can be used all available ventral and dorsal methods.
