Our surgical work takes account to the fact that the spine is an anatomical structure not only designed to allow positioning of our cranium and torso – the spinal column also provides substantial protection to the neural elements and the spinal cord.
Spinal surgery is in constant evolution, a fact that demands experienced and highly specialized surgeons. Dr. Bierstedt and Dr. Illerhaus belong to the small vanguard group of leading neurosurgeons applying innovative cutting-edge techniques.
Both specialists offer their treatments and expertise to international patients.
