Hospital Neuwerk Moenchengladbach
Department of Spinal Surgery
The Department of Spinal Surgery annually treats more than 960 patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. The specialists remove the parts of the vertebrae that compress the spinal cord, after which they reliably stabilize the structure of the spine. The surgery involves the use of the O-Arm system that protects the spinal cord. The department is headed by Dr. med. A Bitter, who specializes in microsurgical spinal interventions.
