Hospital Neuwerk Moenchengladbach
Department of Spinal Surgery
The Department of Spinal Surgery annually treats more than 960 patients with lumbar herniated discs. The specialists remove herniated intervertebral discs using endoscopic equipment. The surgery involves the use of a three-dimensional O-Arm x-ray system, which completely protects the spinal cord. The department is headed by Dr. med. A Bitter, who specializes in microsurgical spinal interventions.
