Department of neurosurgery and spine surgery
The neurosurgery and spine surgery department at KCM Clinic Wroclaw deals with minimally invasive and endoscopic spine surgery, following global trends. The spine endoscopy team has worked with almost the same composition for more than 15 years. In 2005, the department was the first in Poland to introduce endoscopic procedures on the spine, both in the lumbar and thoracic regions. To date, neurosurgeons of the department have performed more than 7,000 such procedures to treat hernias and protrusions. Minimally invasive surgical interventions are characterized by relatively high safety for the patient and surgeon safety, high efficiency, and the frequency of complications is relatively low compared to "traditional" methods. During the operation, patented devices for radiocoagulation are used with a low operating temperature, which is safe for nerve structures. Thanks to appropriate lighting and high-end optics, doctors started capturing high quality (Full HD) images of the surgical field about four years ago.
Experienced neurosurgeons specialize in degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis, protrusions and hernias, osteoporosis, and spinal stenosis. The department uses a posterolateral approach for surgical treatment to avoid possible complications. After surgery, patients are cared for by friendly nursing staff.
