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 and intervertebral discs that compress the spinal cord endoscopically. The surgery involves the use of a three-dimensional O-Arm x-ray system that provides complete protection of the spinal cord. The department is headed by Dr. med. A Bitter, who specializes in microsurgical spinal interventions.
