Special Treatment Fields

The Interdisciplinary Pain Center uses state of the art pain therapy methods such as medication regimens especially tailored to meet the individual patient’s needs, including opioid therapy. Interventional procedures for the temporary or long-lasting blocking of pain in joints or nerves are mainly used for the spinal column region. Neuromodulatory techniques use drugs specifically applied to the cerebrospinal fluid or electrical impulses to impact pain triggering and pain aggravating structures.

In detail, we specialize in the treatment of the following diseases and pain syndromes:

Pain in the whole spinal column and osteoarthrosis / osteoarthritis

  • Caused by protruding or slipped intervertebral disks
  • Degenerative changes, also osteoporosis

  • chronic widespread pain

Headache and facial pain

  • Migraines
