The Centre for Spinal Medicine and Pain Therapy at Hirslanden Klinik Aarau specialises in treating diseases of the spine. Possible causes include degenerative or rheumatic changes, inflammatory nerve diseases, slipped discs, fractured vertebrae and tumours. These lead to back pain and frequently also to discomfort that radiates to the head, arms, buttocks or legs. Other dysfunctions such as intractable muscle tension, difficulty sleeping and adverse effects on the patient’s social and working life can also occur, particularly in the case of chronic pain issues.
Well established and successful interdisciplinary collaboration
When it comes to complex clinical pictures, knowledge from a variety of medical fields is needed to detect all the relevant issues, as well as to plan and implement the best possible treatment. For this reason, experienced specialists from the areas of spinal surgery and neurosurgery, interventional pain medicine, neurology and rheumatology work together closely at the Centre for Spinal Medicine and Pain Therapy Aarau. We also network with other specialist disciplines, e. g. radiology, psychiatry and physiotherapy. The interdisciplinary collaboration between the participating practices and with Hirslanden Klinik Aarau is well established and successful.
We offer our patients:
- Comprehensive diagnostic examinations
- A wide range of treatments
- Short treatment pathways
- Fast access to all medical services
