Dr. Michael Schubert offers premium treatment with his in-house developed surgery techniques and especially designed minute instruments. Stimulating the blood circulation with red wine has by now been integrated into his therapeutic concept. And this will help not only after a surgery: Bad blood circulation – for example from sitting over long periods of time - is also an acknowledged risk factor for the occurrence of a disk herniation.
Discovered was this beneficial "red wine effect" by a Norwegian group of physicians under the direction of the rheumatologist Dr. Rasmussen. They had asked 148 patients 2 ½ years after their disk surgery about their age, socio-economic characteristics, drinking and smoking habits and assessed total outcome. Outcome parameters were pain reduction, decrease of impairment of daily activities and increase in well-being after a disk surgery. The analysis of all data showed: Wine drinkers were on the whole significantly better off. The Munich spine specialist Dr. Schubert is convinced that these remarkable results should find their way into practice and hence he provides all his disk surgery patients with a bottle of excellent red wine. Positive feedback proves him right.
Dr Schubert's team of the APEX SPINE Center is acknowledged worldwide on the field of endoscopic and minimally invasive surgery. Many of those who seek help come from abroad. Two hours after the surgery most patients are able to get up and walk by themselves. Already one day after the intervention flights of up to 90 minutes can be permitted.
There are 10 physiotherapists, massagers, spinal-motion-analysts and sports instructors that are exclusively engaged in back training and rehabilitation. This alone might be a very good reason to consider the APEX SPINE Center as a first choice place to go - not only for stars, managers or other chosen ones.
