Centre for spinal surgery - Our Team

Centre for spinal surgery

Specialised in back pain and spinal conditions

The experts at Schoen Clinic Bad Aibling Harthausen specialise in herniated discs, fractures and inflammatory disorders. As well as this expertise in spinal surgery, there is a special focus on conventional therapies - especially pain therapy.

Spinal expertise for improved quality of life

With or without an operation: The best experts treat your pain

Over 90 per cent of all back pains can be successfully treated using a conventional method. Nevertheless, with some illnesses surgery is the only way of ensuring a life free of pain. Our experienced team of physicians relies on gentle procedures such as microsurgical operations in spinal canal stenosis (spinal canal narrowing) and herniated discs, minimally invasive stabilisation operations of the spine, or motion-preserving intervertebral disc replacement procedures. Close cooperation between our spine surgery specialists and pain therapy experts will ensure that you get the best results.

Our range of treatment options

  • Disc herniation and damage
  • Osteochondrosis
  • Spinal canal stenosis (spinal canal narrowing)
  • Spondylolisthesis (slipped vertebrae)
  • Vertebral fractures - osteoporotic or post-traumatic
  • Scoliosis in youths and seniors (lateral twisting/bending of the spine)
  • Revision surgery
  • Acute and chronic back pain
  • Problems with the detection of pain

Everything in one house: from conservative therapy to outpatient rehabilitation after surgery

Why is your back problem in good hands with us? Because experts in conventional therapies, spinal surgery, pain and rehabilitation all work under one roof. Our consultants, therapists and psychologists work hand-in-hand to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment.

You can be transferred from our acute care clinic to a outpatient rehabilitation centre, without information which is essential to your after-care getting lost. The advantage: Your surgeon is also your point of contact, and is in direct contact with your doctor.

After you have been discharged, our consultants are still here for you - even outside agreed after-care appointments. That is important to us.

Spinal surgery with cutting-edge methods

If surgery is necessary, we use modern, safe operating procedures. Our operating theatres meet the newest medical technical standards. Another special feature of our hospital is joint treatment in the Spine Centre by specialists in spinal surgery and neurosurgery.

Surgical procedures

  • Herniated intervertebral disc (slipped disc)
  • Spinal canal stenosis (spinal canal narrowing)
  • Spondylolisthesis (slipped vertebrae)
  • Osteoporotic vertebral fractures
  • Scoliosis (lateral twisting/bending of the spine)

Revision surgery

All of our specialist knowledge is needed if we perform a second operation to treat persistent pain following unsuccessful surgery in another hospital. With these so-called revision operations, we aim to help you to return to a pain-free life. We therefore make a lot of time for you.

Orthopaedic pain therapy

Diagnostic or therapeutic infiltration specifically targets the source of the pain. It helps to identify the cause of the pain or break the pain cycle and, in the best case scenario, eliminates the need for surgery. Our pain therapy specialists use spinal infiltration or semi-invasive injection techniques. The therapy is always supplemented by intensive physiotherapeutic and physical measures.

Infiltration therapy often leads to rapid relief for back pain or neck pain caused by herniated discs, sphenoid osteoarthritis, spinal canal narrowing (stenosis of the spinal canal) or spinal cord deformity (e.g. scoliosis).
