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 2-3 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.
