Area of expertise:

  • Infiltrations/ Interventional Pain Therapy
  • Conservative therapy
  • Surgical therapy


We offer you a comprehensive evaluation, clarification and assessment of your spinal complaints. The diagnosis is made through a comprehensive clinical examination and evaluation of various imaging modalities such as X-ray, MRI and CT.

Together with you we will develop a therapy plan after a detailed evaluation of all existing medical, clinical and imaging findings. On the one hand, this can be based on conservative measures, but in certain cases also on operative measures.

Conservative therapy measures include the medicinal treatment of neck and back pain as well as complaints radiating to the arms and legs. In particular, we offer interventional pain therapy using infiltrations at the cervical spine and lumbar spine directly under C-arm control (fluoroscopy). The operative treatment of degenerative and traumatic spinal diseases is carried out promptly in two renowned private hospitals in Vienna
