Treatment of back pain

Anaesthesia and Pain Therapy

The causes of back pain are very varied and it is often difficult to determine the precise reason for pain on the basis of clinical and radiological investigations.

Interventional pain therapy

Interventional pain therapy may help in some cases of back pain. Diagnostic nerve or joint blocks may, for example, determine whether a nerve compressed by a prolapsed disc is the cause of the problem or whether an intervertebral joint is actually responsible. Sometimes we can offer interventional pain therapy after the diagnostic investigation, to alleviate or completely relieve the pain in the long-term.

Medication for pain

If no interventional treatment or surgical procedure is possible, our specialists can help you find well-tolerated and effective medication for the pain.

Anaesthesia for spinal operations

We also offer regional anaesthetics for some minor operations in the lower back. A general anaesthetic is usually required for procedures on the spine in the neck and upper back, as well as major and prolonged operations on the lumbar spine.

More information

Dr Urs Eichenberger and his team use the latest anaesthetic techniques for patients of all ages, including children, to provide optimal conditions for smooth and pain-free surgery, as well as recovery from the operation with no complications and minimal pain. Once patients have left the operating theatre, the team continues their care in the recovery room, on the intensive care unit, on the ward, and in subsequent anaesthetic and pain clinics.
