SURGICAL APPROACHES

We are committed to a holistic approach to therapy. Surgery remains the last resort to improve or to cure an ailment.

We operate as a team, mostly at the Private Clinic Wehrle-Diakonissen in Aigen. We do spine surgery which requires decompressions and stabilization for degenerative or traumatic disease. Micro-surgical approaches are common. For seniors we prefer minimally invasive surgery.

WHAT DOES MINIMAL INVASIVE MEAN?

  • … as small an incision as possible
  • … very little blood loss
  • … short anesthesia
  • … rapid mobilization (possibly the same day)
  • … short stay
  • … quick recovery and return to home

In some cases complex surgery is necessary. In seniors, operations as listed below are feasible and reasonable.

TYPES OF SURGERIES WE PERFORM:

  • Decompression and Fusion for the Lumbar Spine such as PLIF (Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion)
  • TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion)
  • Anterior and posterior Decompression of the cervical  spine
  • Microsurgical Decompression or Discectomies of the lumbar spine
  • Decompression of peripheral nerves (for example, carpal tunnel syndrome)
