Core competencies

NeuroSpineZurich – interdisciplinary spinal care since 1997

Since 1997, we have been uniting knowledge and experience from various specialities in an interdisciplinary approach. By customising our treatment based on the individual situation, we treat our patients both conservatively and operatively.

Interdisciplinary

Influenced by the founder, Prof. Dr. med. Urs Dieter Schmid, NeuroSpineZürich today still focuses on the comprehensive, interdisciplinary diagnosis and treatment of all spinal diseases in adults. Prof. Dr. med. Sebastian Weckbach has complemented the team as a partner since 2020.

Spinal surgery

Microsurgery of the entire spine with or without spinal fusion, including intraoperative neuromonitoring for tumours, spinal stenosis, herniated discs and instability.

Spinal medicine (conservative therapy)

Infiltrations, epidural, sacral, facet joint, sacroiliac joint, manual medicine, neural therapy (performed by rheumatologists at Prof. Schmid’s practice, at Bellaria House, and by neuroradiologists at the Klinik Im Park).

Neurological diagnosis

Complex gait disorders (brain, spinal cord, spinal cord nerves, peripheral nerves) and pain in the spine and musculoskeletal system (in cooperation with internal and external consultant neurologists).
