  • Core Competencies

    NeuroSpineZurich - spine interdisciplinary group since 1997

    600 to 1,000 new patients are referred to Prof. Schmid’s outpatient clinic every year for examination, some of whom also receive conservative treatment. Together, the two neurosurgeons perform over 400 open spine operations per year at the Hirslanden Klinik Im Park and the Triemli City Hospital.

    NeuroSpineZurich is a collaborative interdisciplinary group of medical specialists that was nominally founded in 2016 but which has been active for 15 to 20 years. It focuses on the diagnosis, conservative treatment and neurosurgical and neuro-orthopaedic care of spinal disease. The group is composed of the owner/founder of NeuroSpineZurich (Prof. Urs D. Schmid) and 2 rheumatology colleagues (Dr. Susanne Valentin and Dr. Peter Kremer), a general practitioner (Dr. Gisela Pfister), a neurosurgeon (Dr. Massimo Leonardi) and an orthopaedist (Dr. Jörg Huber).

    Spinal surgery

    Microsurgery of the entire spine with and without spinal fusion with intraoperative monitoring in tumours, spinal stenosis, herniated disc, instability.

    Spinal medicine (non surgical)

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

    Neurological diagnosis

    of complex gait disorders (brain, spinal cord, spinal cord nerves, peripheral nerves) in Prof. Schmid’s outpatient clinic (in collaboration with internal and external consultant neurologists).
