Dr. Armin Helmbrecht, MD

Spine specialist - Neurosurgeon


Dr. Armin Helmbrecht, MD has specialized in microscopic minimally invasive open surgical methods using a trocar (sleeve) in the recent years. In this way he has modified, amongst other things, the posterior approach to the cervical spine (for treatment of herniated disc and stenosis) into an access as wide as a finger. This offers the advantage of significantly shorter recovery times as well as the prevention of post surgical neck pain. With the same technique he is able to treat spinal stenoses of the lumbar and thoracic spine. As instructor and guest surgeon he is regularly on lecture tours to teach his new surgery techniques and stay in close contact to his international colleagues.
