The Department of Spine Surgery at the Academic Hospital Hildesheim under the direction of Dr. med. Thomas Günther covers the entire spectrum of spine surgery, as well as neurosurgical care in case of accidents (e.g. acute cerebral hemorrhages). The department treats more than 1,500 inpatients and almost 6,000 outpatients. Close interdisciplinary cooperation with the Departments of Surgery, Anesthesiology, Internal Medicine and Radiology is an integral part of the department’s work.   

In the field of spine surgery, the service range 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.

If necessary, these are involved in providing comprehensive medical care. In addition, the department actively uses intraoperative neuromonitoring.
