Hospital Neuwerk Moenchengladbach
Department of Spinal Surgery
The Department of Spinal Surgery annually treats more than 710 patients with spinal cord empyema. The specialists completely remove the suppurative focus and perform endoscopic decompression of the spinal cord. The surgery involves the use of a three-dimensional O-Arm x-ray system that provides additional protection for the spinal cord. The department is headed by Dr. med. A Bitter, who specializes in microsurgical spinal interventions.
