About General Surgery Ltd at Bogen Hospital

Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli's Pro Spine is present in medical institutions in Bogen, and Bad Füssing. Surgery is done at the Bogen Area Municipal Hospital in Bogen, which is next door to the Pro Spine Clinic. These are true hospitals in American parlance, because they have fully functional and fully staffed ER/Trauma facilities, which is an important safety feature to anyone, who has major surgery. Surgical centers do not have these facilities. Make sure that wherever you have spine surgery it is a true hospital and not a surgical center. The medical facilities at Bad Füssing offer state-of-the-art medical technology, with additional specialties in conservative treatment and convalescence in a spa like atmosphere with four and five star hotel facilities. If you would like to convalesce at Bad Füssing, please discuss this ahead of time with the Pro Spine office.

Hip Replacement

Total Hip Replacement OPERATION: ……. Hip Arthroplasty ( total hip Replacement) PROCEDURE: The hip joint is a “ball and socket joint”. It is a very important joint as it allows a great deal of movement but is also weight-bearing. As a result of this, it is often prone to “wearing away”. This is a simplified reason as to why arthritis occurs. Arthritis can be a very painful disorder which may slow down your mobility/ walking or even stop you from sleeping. A hip replacement is an operation which replaces the severely damaged hip bone with an artificial ball and socket that does the function of the natural joint. It may reduce the pain and help in walking and sleeping. If you hold any x-rays, please bring them with you when you come into hospital. You will be visited by your surgeon before the operation. If you have any questions, now might be a good time to ask them. The surgeon will mark on your leg with a felt pen. This is to make sure the correct leg is operated on. An anaesthetic will be given in theatres. This may be a general anaesthetic (where you will be asleep) and/ or a regional block (e.g. where you are awake but the area to be operated is completely numbed) for example an injection into the spine. You must discuss this and the risks with the anaesthetist. If you have any allergies, please also tell them. You will lie on the opposite side to the one being operated on. Your skin will be cleaned with antiseptic fluid and clean towels (drapes) will be wrapped around the hip. The surgeon will make a cut (incision) using a surgical knife (scalpel). The exact location of the incision depends on your surgeon’s technique. The length of the incision also depends upon the surgeon and your leg. A cut is made through the fat and muscles which lie in the way of the hip bones

 
Hip Resurfacing

Hip Resurfacing OPERATION: ……….. Hip resurfacing PROCEDURE: The hip joint is a ball and socket joint. In some cases, the bone and the cartilage (gristle) that makes up the joint can become worn away. Your surgeon may recommend that you undergo a procedure called a hip resurfacing. This literally replaces the surfaces (which are worn away) and keeps the majority of your own bone (unlike a total hip replacement). The idea of the resurfacing is to reduce the pain and increase the amount of movement. The surgeon will see you before the operation and will mark your painful thigh with a felt pen. This is to make sure that the correct hip is operated on. If you have any questions about the procedure, now might be a good time to ask them. An anaesthetic will be administered in theatres. This may be a general anaesthetic (where you will be asleep) or/and a regional block (e.g. where you are awake but the area to be operated is completely numbed) for example an injection into the spine. You must discuss this with the anaesthetist. If you have any allergies, please also tell them. While you are in theatre, you will lie on the opposite side to the one being operated on. Your skin will be cleaned with antiseptic fluid and surgical towels (drapes) will be wrapped around the hip. The surgeon will make a cut (incision) using a surgical knife (scalpel). The position and size of the cut depends on your surgeon’s technique. The surface of the “cup” of the joint will be replaced by (usually) a metal joint followed by the surface of the ball (the femur). This last implant may be held into position with special bone cement or screws. When happy, the surgeon will put the joint back into position and the wound and skin closed. Some surgeons use stitches (under or above the skin) or some use special skin staples. Both are as effective and depend upon surgeon preference. You may also wake up with a drain coming out of the wound. This is to collect any bleeding. It is quite common.

 
Knee Arthroscopic Washout

Knee arthroscopy OPERATION: ……knee Arthroscopy PROCEDURE: An arthroscopy means “looking into a joint” with a camera. It allows the surgeon to examine the knee joint and perform some operations without having to open the knee completely. You will be visited by your surgeon before your operation. The surgeon will mark (with a felt pen) the leg. This is to make sure the correct leg is operated on. If you have any questions, this is a good time to ask them. Anaesthetic will be administered in theatre and a tight inflatable band (tourniquet) may be placed across the top of your thigh to limit the amount of bleeding. Your skin will be cleaned with anti-septic solution and clean towels (drapes) placed around your knee. The surgeon will make up to four small incisions (cuts) either side of the knee cap. These are generally no more than 1 centimetre in length. Through the first incision, the surgeon can pass a telescope with a camera. This shows pictures on a nearby television screen. The second or third incision may allow tools or drains to be passed into the joint. The tools include probes, shavers, scissors and punches. The surgeon might not be able to say exactly what needs to be done until they are looking inside the knee. Therefore the consent form is non-specific. It allows the surgeon to treat most abnormalities found during the operation. Some surgeons close the skin with stitches (non-dissolvable) in which case they will need to be removed around ten days after the operation. Your nurse practitioner at your GP practice can do this for you (make an appointment). When finished, the wounds are dressed and local anaesthetic may be injected into the wounds. When you wake up, you will have a padded bandage around your knee. Later the same day, when you feel well enough, and you have been shown how to use crutches, you may go home. You should not drive yourself home.

 
Knee Replacement

OPERATION: …… Knee Replacement (Knee Arthroplasty) PROCEDURE: The knee is an important hinge joint and as it is weight-bearing can be prone to “wearing out”. Arthritis is painful and disabling and you and your surgeon may have decided that a knee replacement may be your best option. A knee replacement is a surgical procedure, in which the injured or damaged running surfaces of the knee are replaced with artificial parts which are secured to the bone. If you have any X-rays of your own please remember to bring them with you to the hospital. You will be seen by the surgeon before the operation. They will take this opportunity to draw (mark with a pen) on your leg. This is to make sure the correct leg is operated on. If you have any questions, this might be a good time to ask them. An anaesthetic will be administered in theatre. This may be a general anaesthetic (where you will be asleep) or a local block (e.g. where you are awake but the area to be operated is completely numbed). You must discuss this with the anaesthetist. A tight inflatable band (a tourniquet) may be placed across the top of the thigh to limit the bleeding. Your skin will be cleaned with anti-septic solution and covered with clean towels (drapes). The surgeon will make an incision (a cut) down the middle of the knee. The knee capsule (the tough, gristle-like tissue around the knee) which is then visible can be cut and the knee cap (patella) pushed to one side. From here, the surgeon can trim the ends of the thigh bone (femur) and leg bone (tibia) using a special bone saw. Some surgeons also remove the underside of the knee cap. Using measuring devices, the new artificial knee joints are fitted into position

Prof Rudolf Bertagnoli

Job Title:
  Consultant

Languages:

Biography:

Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli is leading the development of surgical techniques. This is an important concept for those who have , which is a condition, which causes rotation and curvature of the spine in adults due to compromises of the intervertabral discs. New techniques such as the are directly applicable to this condition. Furthermore, posterior interlaminar approaches, such as the recently FDA-approved are available with Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli for patients with the appropriate case.


Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli is the world’s leading spine surgeon in the opinion of many medical professionals and patients. Nothing could be more evident of Prof. Dr. Bertagnolis role as the worlds leading spine surgeon in that he teaches spine surgery to other doctors all over the world. He has instructed more than 3,000 doctors from more than 55 countries. As of May 2011 he has completed over 5,000 (ADRs) and over 7,500 spinal devices of all types. He has performed all his own anterior and posterior approaches to the spine, making him the most experienced ADR surgeon in the world. Dr. Bertagnoli is the only ADR surgeon, who has peer-reviewed analysis of the results of his work. A surgeons manual skill, experience and research credentials are the most important factors when choosing a surgeon, especially when the surgical procedures are relatively new. To further understand some of the distinctions of Prof. Dr. Bertagnolis methods and practices please see the patient testimonial of one of our US medical doctors,

News:
***Patient evaluations are now free to those who use our new online evaluation system. This system saves time and money for the patient and ProSpine.

***More and more US insurance companies are pre-approving ADR surgery by Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli in Germany. Pre-payment is also a possibility. If pre-payment is not available, short-term loans may now be available through a bank to patients with letters of guaranteed payment to the patient from their insurance companies.(Costs are much lower in Germany with the quality of care very high)

*** Currently many patients are asking about elastomeric (rubbery) or cushioning disc replacements, such as the LP-ESP, Ranier, Spinal Kinetics M6, etc., which have the CE mark. Several of these discs are available for implantation with Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli, if it is appropriate for the patient. Patients with severe degeneration of the spinal segment(s) in question are not usually good candidates for these discs, as the surrounding tissue may have adapted to degenerative conditions, therefore more corrective devices like a semi-constrained device may be better suited. Caveat: While the concept of these discs is appealing for disc replacement surgery, long-term studies are not available to substantiate the endurance of the new materials used in them and the containment of internal materials by the ones with an "artificial annulus". If the inner core of these devices should fail or erode over time, replacement of the inner core of single piece devices require the removal of the entire disc. These three points represent additional risks to the patients receiving these devices.

***Also, the extreme lateral ( NuVasive ® ) or oblique implantation ( Prodisc-0 ) approach for lumbar patients is available.

To determine if these discs are right for you, please contact us. Each patient is different.*** .


Prof. Dr. Rudolf Bertagnoli on Artificial Disc Replacement Surgery     

Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli stays atop of his profession by setting aside time for active research, whereas most surgeons remain focused only on their daily practice. Research is a never-ending task, especially in the very complex field of spine surgery. New treatments are always under development.

Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli, who was initially trained as a mechanical engineer, has played a significant role in the development of the Prodisc artificial disc replacement and the surgical procedure and instruments to implant it. The instrumentation concept has been copied by other manufacturers and he is setting the standards for the surgical procedures. He is also the second surgeon to have implanted the Maverick artificial disc replacement. Also, the patient should know that Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli is free to implant the best disc for the patient and has no agreement with any manufacturer to exclusively implant their disc.

Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli believes that for the best outcome, research and any standard medical procedure must be correctly applied to the unique circumstance of the patient with back pain. Therefore, he with other doctors on his staff extensively examines all patient records, images and pain questionnaires before the patient arrives. To get the best diagnosis and treatment plan possible, sometimes Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli will request more images or other tests before a final diagnosis and treatment plan are made. Although this may seem tedious to some, it is necessary to avoid surprises after the patient arrives. Of course, upon arrival at Pro Spine extensive exams of the patient will take place before surgery.

Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli follows the conservative approach to spine surgery, i.e. spine surgery should never be conducted without a clear indication it is needed. If there is no clear indication for spine surgery, then conservative non-invasive techniques should be used first. Warmth, electrotherapy, physiotherapy, medication and osteopathic techniques are example of non-invasive treatments available at Pro Spine. More aggressive non-surgical techniques such as injections for pain are also available. Because it is often impossible to predict the progression of spine disease, no prophylactic surgery is done, although the patient may request it.

If you have serious back pain, we invite you to contact us for an evaluation with the worlds leading spine surgeon, Prof. Dr. Bertagnoli.
