Spine Treatment Department
Doctors of the Department perform microsurgical operations on the spine, after which a patient can stand up the next day. A person undergoes a course of physical therapy for complete recovery.

- Spine microsurgery. The operation is conducted through small incisions using microsurgical instruments and an optical device. After the procedure, a small scar remains, and recovery is faster when compared to traditional surgery.
- Artificial vertebrae implant. Supposes a removal of damaged disc and installation of the implant. After the procedure, spine maintains mobility.
