About us

Spinal Center at the St. Remigius Hospital, Opladen

Patients are treated with the utmost precision and care under the direction of Asst. Prof. Dr. Cornelius Jacobs, Specialist in Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery, in the Spinal Center of the St. Remigius Hospital Opladen/Leverkusen, . He has been Chief Physician at the Spinal Center since April 2019. Prior to this, he was a Senior Physician at the Level 1 Spine Center at Bonn University Hospital and he also worked in the field of emergency medicine on the rescue helicopter, Christoph 5. Thanks to this experience, he handles extremely stressful situations confidently.

The Spinal Center covers the entire spectrum of conservative and surgical therapies for degenerative spinal diseases and also injuries and deformities of the spinal column. Three-dimensional imaging provides patients with a meticulously accurate diagnosis and the center's state-of-the-art technical equipment provides the best possible operating room conditions, whereby surgery is only the last resort when drugs, physical therapy and pain therapy have reached their limits. Around 800 patients undergo surgery in the Spinal Center for herniated discs, stabilization of intervertebral disc prostheses, spinal injuries or vertebral body fractures after accidents, spinal canal narrowing through to therapy of acquired or congenital deformities.

The St. Remigius Hospital in Opladen has purchased a 3D imager that assists surgeons with millimeter precision allowing them to precisely identify during surgery whether screws that have been inserted are also sitting correctly. Three-dimensional imaging may also reduce the need for subsequent surgery and provides additional safety for patients.

The established team in the Spinal Center has received excellent leadership with Asst. Prof. Dr. Cornelius Jacobs and, thanks to many years of surgical experience, enables optimal care at university level. Surgery is performed using a microscopic or minimally invasive technique to conserve as much tissue as possible. The ultimate goal is to maintain the maximum functionality of the entire spine.

Postoperative therapy under specialist supervision is also provided by a rehabilitation facility that is approved by statutory health insurance companies. Following rehabilitation, patients can take part in a medical fitness program that is specifically tailored to patients with musculoskeletal injuries and disorders and is a useful add-on treatment to restore mobility and mobility.
