Whether acute or chronic, back pain can place a great strain on people’s everyday lives. A thorough consultation together with individualised and expert diagnosis will ensure that the right therapeutic approach is found for the particular back problem.
Our goal is to help patients with back pains to enjoy more quality of life and to give them specialised care, based on an individualised treatment approach, many years’ experience, a highly specialised range of services aimed at selected clinical conditions, combined with the latest technology.
Whenever possible, our specialists try to help with conservative treatment. This cannot always be achieved without an operation. If a surgical procedure is necessary, this is done at Kantonsspital Winterthur. Always using gentle, minimally invasive, microsurgical techniques, if at all possible.
The range of specialists in Neurosurgery covers the whole spectrum of spinal surgery as well as surgery for tumours and vascular malformations of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system.
