Treatment of Pain in Spine & Back in Munich

Our multidisciplinary team spends a significant amount of time treating patients with chronic back pain. With our individual therapy concepts developed in a multidisciplinary manner, we often achieve good results even in seemingly hopeless cases. We carefully analyse and diagnose the individual causes of pain and, whenever possible, initially treat with conservative treatment methods. Only after these options have been exhausted do we rely on minimally-invasive therapy procedures for the back and spine. Only after all other methods have not been sufficiently successful do we recommend an operation.

Thanks to our multidisciplinary pain analysis, diagnosis and therapy, we can find also the best possible therapy for complex cases. Our team consisting of orthopaedists, neurologists, anaesthesiologists, medical specialists for physiotherapy, as well as neurosurgeons has only one aim: To alleviate your pain! Therefore, we further develop our methods and therapy procedures within our multidisciplinary practice community, train interested pain therapists, and network with colleagues, in order to advance spine pain medicine and thus also help our patients along in the future as good as possible.

For you, this means innovative and gentle treatment methods. It also means an experienced expert team that avoids surgery for as long as possible and that is a pioneer in many minimally-invasive treatments throughout Europe. Our first priority is the health of your back!
