Slipped vertebra – our therapy

The treatment of your slipped vertebra (spondylolisthesis) belongs in the hands of experts. Our specialists at the Spine Centre in Hamburg are nationally and internationally renowned and outstanding spine experts on whom you can rely for the treatment of your slipped vertebra. Based on a comprehensive and detailed diagnosis, we will create an individual treatment plan for you. Conservative measures such as targeted physiotherapeutic exercises or sports are often sufficient to alleviate the pain caused by slipped vertebra. More pronounced spondylolisthesis, whether in the cervical or lumbar spine, is often accompanied by constriction of nerves or the spinal cord. In these cases, surgery may be the appropriate treatment to permanently alleviate your slipped vertebra. The experienced surgeons in our Spine Centre in Hamburg, which is certified as a centre of excellence in Germany and Europe, use state-of-the-art surgical techniques such as spinal navigation.
