Diagnosis: stenosis C4-C5-C6 osteophyte complex and myelopathy

Good afternoon I have a diagnosis of C4-C5-C6 stenosis osteophyte complex and myelopathy. On the recommendation of friends, I turned to Maria Rybalova. Maria selected for me several options for clinics in Israel and Germany, at a high professional level explained to me the advantages of each and especially doctors, thereby helping me make the right choice. I especially want to note that throughout the entire period of my stay in the clinic and after returning home, Maria is always in touch with me, is interested in my well-being, helps me in solving any issues, accompanies me and is the link between me and my doctor. Low bow to her for everything and words of deep gratitude. Thanks to Maria for mercy, compassion, high level of professionalism, for the ability to work with a soul and an open heart!!! I was operated on at the Solingen Academic Hospital by Prof. Ralf Buhl. In truth, the Doctor has golden hands. Now, 1.5 months after the surgery, my health has improved significantly. I am very satisfied with the results of the treatment and surgery. But this is a separate issue.

Diagnosis: intervertebral hernia

We were treated at the Alfred Krupp clinic in Essen, the diagnosis was a herniated disc. The doctors scheduled a surgery. It was performed by an experienced German neurosurgeon. We were very worried about the surgery, but everything went well, excellent service, good conditions, and most importantly, treatment in Germany at a very professional level. Many thanks to the doctors.

Diagnosis: Vertebroplasty

I underwent vertebroplasty in Germany, at the Helios Berlin-Buch clinic. Everything went well, the back does not hurt now. Yes, I had a fear of the procedure, since it is still the spine, but the doctors reassured me. I ordered the services of an interpreter, so there was no language barrier. Thank you doctors for your help!

Diagnosis: Lumbar laminectomy

After the accident, I suffered from lower back pain for some time. My doctors recommended a lumbar laminectomy, but the operation was not covered by my insurance and cost a fortune. I almost resigned myself to my pain and refused the operation. And then I found out about the Asklepios clinic in Germany. I searched for information about the cost, and it turned out to be acceptable to me. Within a week, I planned a trip to Germany and had a lumbar laminectomy procedure at Asklepios Hospital.

Spine treatment in Germany: maximum efficiency and safety

Spine treatment in Germany is a current request among foreign patients. The spine is the basis of the human musculoskeletal system, which is susceptible to various diseases and injuries. They can lead to a decrease in quality of life, limitation of movement, chronic pain, and disability. According to WHO, over 80% of people have spinal problems of varying severity. Therefore, it is important to seek qualified medical help promptly.

Back treatment in Germany: why is it the best choice?

Spine treatment in Germany

Spine treatment in Germany means a high level of diagnostics, conservative and surgical treatment, rehabilitation and prevention. The most effective and safe therapy methods are used here, allowing you to restore spinal function, eliminate pain, and prevent complications.

German clinics are recognized as one of the best for treating diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The main advantages include:

  1. High level of German surgeons, many of whom are world experts in neurosurgery, orthopedics and traumatology. They develop technologies that have become the “gold standard” for spine treatment in the world.
  2. Spinal surgeries in Germany are performed using microsurgical, endoscopic, and robotic techniques using microscopes and surgical microinstruments.
  3. A wide range of minimally invasive therapy methods are available in German clinics. For example, at the Nordwest Clinic in Frankfurt am Main, radio wave denervation of vertebral joints and percutaneous laser treatment of intervertebral discs are performed. This allows you to get rid of the disease without problems in many cases.
  4. Spinal surgery in Germany allows you to eliminate pain, restore the shape and height of the spine, and improve its function. Here they do:

Dorsal operations – through posterior access to the spinal column;
Ventrodorsal operations are done through anterior and posterior approaches to the spine.

  1. Leading German clinics develop and use effective and safe drugs unavailable in other countries. Patients have the opportunity to take medications home after the course of therapy.

According to consolidated data from German clinics, over 80% of patients who underwent back treatment in Germany were able to get rid of severe spinal diseases completely.

Spinal diseases: causes and symptoms

Spinal diseases

Back diseases are recognized as the No. 1 disease in developed countries. The main reasons for the development of pathologies include:

  • inactive lifestyle;
  • obesity;
  • strong physical activity;
  • pathology of posture;
  • flat feet;
  • traumatic back injuries.

Many pathologies develop due to age-related changes in bones and blood supply to tissues. Heredity plays a significant role: if there are genetic disorders in the family history, there is a high probability of predisposition to the development of pathologies.

Doctors at the Schon Clinic in Munich recommend contacting a specialist if you have the following symptoms:

  • back pain that causes limited mobility;
  • dizziness with darkening of the eyes and short-term loss of consciousness;
  • with muscle spasms and shooting pains when changing body position or bending;
  • with numbness and tingling in various parts of the body;
  • if there is a violation of movement coordination;
  • asymmetry of the sides of the body.

German clinics successfully treat all pathologies: neurodegenerative diseases, tumors and spinal injuries, protrusion and herniated intervertebral discs.

Spine diagnostics in Germany

Spine diagnostics in Germany

Back examinations in German clinics are highly accurate, informative, and meet international standards. German specialists use advanced video diagnostic techniques. This allows:

  • determine the presence and degree of spinal deformity;
  • make an accurate diagnosis;
  • draw up the correct treatment regimen, increasing the patient’s chances of a full recovery.

At the University Hospital Essen, doctors prescribe:

  1. Digital X-ray examination (EOS). This technique provides 3D visualization of the spinal column. The doctor can study the structures of bone tissue, joints, ligaments, and intervertebral discs.
  2. CT and MRI of the spine are done using the latest generation equipment. Layer-by-layer images in three planes provide a complete picture of soft tissues, discs, vessels, and nerves. MRI is the most informative method for detecting syringomyelia, a central nervous system pathology in which cavities form in the spinal cord.
  3. Ultrasound with Doppler (USDG). It allows you to assess the state of blood flow in the vessels of the spinal cord and identify diseases of the endocrine glands.
  4. Scintigraphy. Using radioactive isotopes determines the presence and spread of tumors, and inflammatory and metabolic disorders in the spine’s bones.
  5. Electromyography (EMG). Detects damage to the spinal cord nerves.
  6. Densitometry. Determines bone density for diagnosing osteoporosis.
  7. Lumbar puncture. Prescribed for suspected inflammatory diseases of the spinal cord membranes.

Patients also undergo laboratory tests: general blood test, biochemical blood test, and general urinalysis.

Spine surgery in Germany: benefits

Spine surgery in Germany

Spinal surgery is one of the priority areas of medicine in Germany. German surgeons prefer minimally invasive operations that allow:

  • eliminate the cause of the pathology;
  • maintain spine mobility;
  • minimize the risk of complications and side effects;
  • patients recover quickly.

Hospitals in Germany are equipped with high-tech operating equipment, thanks to which surgeons can operate using micro-invasive techniques. In Germany, unique technologies for treating spinal diseases are widely used, but they are not always available in the patient’s homeland. For example, surgeons at the Asklepios Clinic in Hamburg use:

  1. Robotic and navigation systems Spine Assist and Tivato Zeiss. These are settings that increase the effectiveness of intervention and reduce the risk of medical errors. Often used in scoliosis surgery, removal of spina bifida, malignant and benign neoplasms.
  2. Various high-tech minimally invasive techniques:
    – laser vaporization of Schmorl’s hernia;
    – cold plasma nucleoplasty of herniated disc;
    – radiofrequency ablation of facet joints for back pain.
  1. SpinalFusion – simultaneous stabilization of several vertebrae. Titanium supports are used, which are inserted into adjacent healthy vertebrae. The technology allows patients to fully maintain spinal mobility and recover within 4 days.
  2. Endoscopic techniques. Allows intervention through small punctures in the skin. This reduces trauma to organs and tissues, blood loss, pain and rehabilitation time.

The main advantages of spine surgery in Germany are the high level of technology in operations and the many years of practical experience of neurosurgeons.

Spine surgeries in Germany: techniques

Spine surgeries in Germany: spinal fusion

In German hospitals, a wide arsenal of advanced minimally invasive techniques is used for spinal surgeries:

  1. Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty. Interventions target vertebral compression fractures caused by osteoporosis. This involves injecting bone cement, which hardens and strengthens the bone. It is effective for lesions of the vertebrae in the lumbar and coccygeal region.
  2. Spinal laminectomy (decompression). They are indicated for narrowing of the spinal canal. The surgeon relieves pressure on the nerves by excising the damaged bone walls of the vertebrae. If necessary, decompression is performed followed by implantation of an intervertebral disc. To relieve compression of the spinal cord and nerve roots in the lumbar region, lumbar decompression with fusion is performed.
  3. Laminotomy. The procedure involves removing part of the vertebra above the spinal cord. Unlike a laminectomy, the doctor removes less of the vertebral plate.
  4. Microdiscectomy. Removal of herniated intervertebral discs. Often combined with laminectomy in the thoracic region. Various intervention methods may be used:
  • microsurgical discectomy – performed through a minimal incision from the back using operating microscopes;
  • endoscopic discectomy – involves an incision of up to 2 cm, into which the surgeon inserts an endoscope and uses it to monitor the progress of the procedure on a monitor.
  1. Foraminotomy. They are performed when the spinal nerves are pinched. During an intervention where the nerve root exits the spinal canal, the doctor enlarges the bony opening to relieve pressure on the nerve.
  2. Spiral nucleotomy. The procedure is performed when the nerve is compressed. The surgeon removes part of the damaged intervertebral disc using a very thin needle under X-ray guidance.
  3. Arthrodesis (spondylodesis). It involves the fusion of two or more vertebrae using bone grafts or special devices, which the doctor fixes with screws. The operation is indicated for:
  • injuries and fractures of the spine;
  • intervertebral hernias;
  • degenerative-dystrophic diseases of the spine, including the cervical spine: arthrosis, spondylosis and advanced forms of osteochondrosis.
  1. Corporectomy with spinal fusion is a complex surgical intervention on the spine. The goal is to remove the vertebral body and intervertebral disc, which compress the spinal cord and cause pain. Indicated for severe forms of spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, congenital and acquired scoliosis.
  2. Implantation of artificial intervertebral discs. This is an alternative option for arthrodesis in case of significant damage to the vertebral discs. During the procedure, the surgeon replaces the intervertebral disc with a synthetic implant, which restores mobility between the vertebrae.

According to hospital aggregate data, the success rate of spine surgery in Germany exceeds 98%.

Spine treatment in Germany without surgery

If there is no need for emergency surgical intervention associated with the threat of motor disorders (for example, paralysis), German doctors can offer conservative treatment methods.

For the treatment of the spine in Germany, many developments of metabolic therapy are available using effective medications, which have no analogs in other countries. In 85% of cases, doctors manage to achieve good results without surgery.

Spine treatment in Germany without surgery

At the Alfred Krupp Clinic in Essen, patients are prescribed:

  • non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – to effectively eliminate inflammation and swelling, restore bone tissue;
  • steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (corticosteroids) – to reduce pain caused by pinched nerve roots;
  • bisphosphonates – to prevent bone destruction during osteoporosis, restore calcium levels, and cleanse the body of excess salts;
  • muscle relaxants – to reduce muscle spasms caused by intervertebral hernia;
  • diuretics (diuretics) – to remove excess water and salts for back pain caused by edema and high blood pressure;
  • specific antiviral and antibacterial drugs – in case of identified infection that causes inflammation and affects the structures of the spine.

In German clinics, intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IET) is widely used for degenerative changes in intervertebral discs. This minimally invasive treatment method is based on introducing a catheter with a heating element into the affected disc under X-ray control.

Spine treatment in Germany: prices

The cost of back treatment in German hospitals includes many factors:

  • number of diagnostic studies;
  • nature of the disease;
  • the chosen technique and volume of intervention;
  • qualification level of the doctor;
  • pricing policy of a particular clinic.

Estimated prices for spine treatment in Germany:

  • hernia removal – from $11,000;
  • surgery for spinal stenosis – $18,500;
  • discectomy – from $27,000;
  • laminectomy – from $18,000;
  • scoliosis surgery – $29,700;
