DepartmentSpine Surgery, Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery
The specialist Spine Surgery, Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery team focuses exclusively on treating spinal conditions and injuries. Schulthess Klinik offers the full range of conservative and surgical treatment options for degenerative conditions of the spine, deformities, tumours, inflammation and injuries of the spinal column. The team carries out some 1,400 procedures every year.
Our spine research team has developed a prognosis tool to predict the result of surgery for spinal disc herniation. This means that patients are given a realistic assessment of what they can expect from an operation.
