About us

Dr. Bronek Boszczyk is the Visiting Professor (School of Science and Technology, Nottingham Trent University) and, since summer of 2018, the Chief Physician of the Spinal Center at the Benedictus Hospital in Tutzing on Lake Starnberg (near Munich). Following his specialist training in neurosurgery, the spinal surgeon completed a three-year fellowship (advanced training), with a focus on orthopedic and emergency spinal surgery, at the Inselspital of the University of Berne (Switzerland) and the Centre for Spinal Studies and Surgery at the Queen’s Medical Centre of the University of Nottingham (Great Britain). The Spinal Center of Nottingham University Hospital provides specialized medical care for around four million inhabitants and is the largest European training center for spinal surgery, where around 1,200 largely reconstructive surgical procedures are performed annually. Most recently, Dr. Bronek Boszczyk headed this renowned center for five years and, with over 3,500 surgical spinal procedure cases, including highly complex reconstructive procedures, provides exceptionally wide experience across the entire field of spinal surgery.

During his almost 15 years practice in university hospitals and most recently as the Visiting Professor at the University of Nottingham and Trent University, the renowned spinal surgeon has published over 100 PubMed-listed specialist articles on spinal surgery. In Germany, Dr. Bronek Boszczyk is qualified as a Professor at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. The focus of his surgical practice is reconstructive spinal surgery for tumors and deformities of the entire spinal column including the cervical spine. Dr. Bronek Boszczyk is internationally established in the development of innovative surgical techniques, particularly for degenerative scolioses. The interdisciplinary team of specialists under Dr. Bronek Boszczyk incorporates collaboration with orthopedic specialists, neurosurgeons, emergency surgeons and pain specialists. The surgical emphases of the individual specialists cover the entire open and minimal invasive range including endoscopic and microsurgical techniques. The Benedictus Hospital in Tutzing provides very close interdisciplinary collaboration with the Departments of Vascular Surgery, Anesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine. Thus, the Spinal Center has a nationwide reputation for complex revision procedures.
