About the department
The Department of Spinal Surgery and Conservative Orthopedics at the University Orthopedic Hospital Hannover-Annastift MHH offers the full range of conservative and surgical treatment of all spinal diseases. The experienced doctors of the department have in their arsenal many effective therapeutic techniques that help patients get rid of pain, restore mobility, and thereby improve the quality of life. The department is headed by PD Dr. med. Frank Gossé – an outstanding surgeon, who has managed to save many patients’ lives.
Initially, the physicians of the department try to apply all possible conservative treatments, for example, drug therapy, physiotherapy, mud wrapping, massages, electrotherapy. If conservative methods exhaust themselves and do not give positive results, doctors resort to surgical treatment. Since the department is keeping pace with modern technologies, many surgical interventions are performed with the use of sparing minimally invasive techniques that help to significantly reduce the period of postoperative recovery, to avoid strong pain sensations.

- Spinal surgery
