Our activities are characterised by a culture of high quality, based on excellent skills and excellent nursing. We use solely microsurgical techniques, in order to ensure the best possible results.
We value our own development and medical assessment highly.
The quality and the skills that we offer are ensured through:
- accurate diagnosis
- safe surgical techniques
- excellent nursing
- meaningful rehabilitation.
Accurate diagnosis is a critical part of our activities. In order to be able to make a correct diagnosis, it is important to be able to interpret the language of pain through experience, an open, listening approach, and a thorough assessment of the patient. The clinic possesses great experience in the assessment of patients with back disorders. Our physicians place a great deal of importance on the consultation at the clinic, and allow it to take the time required.
The patients can meet physicians who speak English, German, Spanish, Korean, Arabic and Kurdish.
An X-ray can sometimes reveal the cause of pain, but not always. It is always necessary to assess symptoms, clinical observations and X-rays. Surgical procedures can in some cases eliminate the cause of pain, and as gentle a technique as possible should be used in these cases.
We have been carrying out a specific pain analysis for several years with the aim of developing reliable methods that will enable us to identify these patients, and with the aim of developing clinical surgical techniques.
Our philosophy of care is to provide high-quality care based on the specific needs of each patient. The everyday nursing is carried out solely by qualified nurses, creating a unified care. All nurses have long and extensive experience within the field of spinal surgery.
We use the Primary Nursing model in our work, which in our case means that each patient who requires more than a certain amount of care is assigned a primary nurse. Other patients who require less demanding care meet a limited number of nurses from admission until discharge, including the time spent in the recovery room after surgery.
