Spine surgery addresses the entire spectrum of diseases and injuries of the vertebral column.

Thus it represents an overlap between two specialties, orthopaedic surgery and neurosurgery. Surgical management of the spine demands profound knowledge of the diverse surgical techniques as well as the function and position of the vertebral bodies, intervertebral discs, tendons and muscles, but also of the spinal cord and the local nerves.

Spine surgery focuses on the surgical management of slipped discs, vertebral fractures, injuries, instability, degenerative and rheumatic charges or congenital deformities of the spine as well as scoliosis, kyphosis and humpback.

The surgical treatment of abscesses and tumours of the whole spine also falls within this special discipline.
