The Gelenk Klinik Spine Centre - bringing Orthopaedics, Neurosurgery and Rehabilitation together

MRT Investigation of the Spine The high-resolution MRI scan is important for accurate diagnosis involving intervertebral discs, vertebral bodies and intervertebral joints. The complete range of spine related diagnosis is offered in the Spine Centre at the Gelenk-Klinik Hospital. © Joint-surgeon.com

Chronic back pain is often diagnosed by specialists from different fields and different areas of knowledge.

Depending on whether you consult a general practitioner, a doctor with a background in psychosomatic medicine, an orthopaedic surgeon, a neurosurgeon or a rehabilitation physician, the explanation for your problem and the treatment recommendations you receive, may vary greatly. Many patients relate the experience of having to search for an effective diagnosis of and plan of action for their back pain for a very long time.

The Orthopaedic surgeon - Specialist for Spine and Back Surgery

Dr. med Frank Haberstroh, Orthopaedic Spine Specialist Dr. med Frank Haberstroh, Orthopaedic Spine Consultant The orthopaedic spine consultant Dr. Frank Haberstroh examines the function of spinal vertebrae, intervertebral discs and facet joints.

As an orthopaedic surgeon and the expert consultant for the spine and back, he offers specialised diagnosis and treatment. He can provide specialised pain and injection therapy (including infiltration and epidural catheter).

Dr. Frank Haberstroh also removes herniated discs micro endoscopically, with minimally invasive surgery.

Microendoscopic means that the surgery is performed through a needle without surface cuts in the skin or the tissue around the spine. Sutures and wounds are avoided.

Damage to the spine for example, following fractures of the vertebral body, can be treated by stabilizing the vertebral bone. This includes procedures such as kyphoplasty (filling the fracture with bone cement) and elastoplasty (padding with elastic materials such as silicone).

The Neurosurgeon - Specialist for the Nerves and the Spinal Cord

Expert Consultant for Neurosurgery Bijan Ganepour, Neurosurgical Specialist Expert Consultant for Neurosurgery Bijan Ganepour, Neurosurgical Specialist

The neurosurgeon is an expert on nerve and spinal cord function. Because the spinal cord is part of the central nervous system, back pain can often be related to neurological problems and pain.

Trapped nerves may lead to numbness, paralysis and loss of sensation. The source of back pain is often identified when the nerves are thoroughly examined. This investigation is just as important as the imaging techniques (X-rays and MRI). If the intervertebral discs are found to be degenerated and causing pain, the neurosurgical consultant can reverse this situation and maintain the functionality of the spine through modern artificial disc replacement surgery.

The Physical Therapist - Expert Consultant for Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation medicine, including cell biology.

Expert Consultant for Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy Dr. med. Bernhard DickreiterExpert Consultant for Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy Dr. med. Bernhard Dickreiter

The expert consultant for rehabilitation and physical therapy Dr. Bernhard Dickreiter can treat chronic back pain and movement disorders by looking at deficits in mobility, metabolism and regeneration.

The analysis of the metabolic situation in the painful or immobile areas is a particularly important part of his work.

If the tissue in a part of the body is subjected to long episodes of pain and cramps, the metabolism in this tissue will not be efficient. This metabolic inefficiency in turn leads to more pain and thus chronic pain is perpetuated in a vicious circle.

Through appropriate measures in the field of physical therapy and cell biological regulation medicine (ZRT®-Matrix-Therapy) pain can be effectively overcome and mobility restored.

The Physiotherapist - Specialist in Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation.

For all types of back pain, it is particularly important to treat patients as quickly as possible to stimulate and strengthen movement. Chronic pain is often associated with the loss of muscle function because the patient often avoids particular movements to escape the pain. Physiotherapists and physicians work alongside each other in the Spine Centre of the Gelenk-Klinik in order to offer the specific treatment and rehabilitation exercises for each medical condition.
