Hospital Neuwerk Moenchengladbach
Department of Spinal Surgery
The Department of Spinal Surgery annually treats more than 960 patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. The specialists perform endoscopic laminectomy – remove parts of the vertebrae that compress the spinal cord. The surgery involves the use of a three-dimensional O-Arm x-ray system that protects the spinal cord. The department is headed by Dr. med. A Bitter, who specializes in microsurgical spinal interventions.
