Our goal is to help patients who suffer from back problems. Thanks to the revolutionary endoscopic method, the surgeries performed are minimally invasive. Owing to many years of experience and narrow specialization, we minimize not only the risk of complications and perioperative pain, but also the time needed by patients to return to their daily activities, work and physical activity. We provide comprehensive postoperative care, because we take care of each stage of rehabilitation, and analyse the health status of our patients

Doctor Piotr Winkler
Spine surgeon
Minimally invasive treatments are not just a small scar. Minimally invasiveness means a reduction of injury to the body, which is a surgery, it also means less blood loss, less drop of immunity, less perioperative pain. Modern treatment involves solving patient's problems with the least possible surgical intervention. Endoscopy of the spine fits in perfectly with this treatment philosophy.
