About us PD Dr med. Marc Röllinghoff

Anyone dealing with spinal problems should definitely consult an experienced specialist. Preferably a specialist who is completely familiar with orthopaedic surgery – and who also looks far beyond the classical horizons of their discipline. Priv.- Doz. Dr med. Marc Röllinghoff is this kind of doctor: The head physician of the Department of Orthopaedics, Accident Surgery and Spinal Surgery at the Clinic for Surgery at the Marien-Hospital Marl also has a high level of expertise in treating of all kinds of spinal disorders. So it's obvious: surgery is only performed if it can no longer be avoided.

Back pain quickly has an impact on a person’s overall well-being.
Often a traumatic or degenerative spinal disease such as a slipped disc is associated with social and professional life coming to a virtual standstill. When lack of mobility and constant pain determine everyday life, choosing the right doctor plays an important role.

Priv.-Doz. Dr med. Marc Röllinghoff, head physician of the Department of Surgery, Orthopaedics, Accident Surgery and Spine Surgery at the Marien-Hospital in Marl, is the right person to talk to. He knows all aspects of the widespread condition of back pain, thanks to many years of experience – and he knows which therapy has the best chance of treatment success and when.

Clear premise: conservative before operative

First of all, the expertise of the head physician comes into play in the diagnostics – from the detailed anamnesis to the examination with modern MRI and CT devices and, if necessary, Doppler sonography. Is it specific or non-specific back pain? Is the pain perhaps coming from the muscles? Initially, conservative options are used at the Marl hospital, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, injections close to the spine and minimally invasive pain therapies (e.g. endoscopic facet joint treatments). "The premise is always: conservative before operative," says Priv.-Doz. Dr Röllinghoff, "and when surgery is performed, the results are often above average due to the high quality standards." Meaning: Patients who turn to the clinic can usually be helped very successfully.

Particularly when spinal surgery is the best therapy to quickly enable a return to mobility that is as pain-free as possible, minimally invasive surgical techniques are the focus in Marl. Then, often with the support of a surgical microscope, surgery is performed precisely and, above all, in a way that is gentle on the muscles and tissues. It can also be useful to combine surgical and conservative treatments.

Back specialist with complete orthopaedics and accident surgery spectrum

Of course, the department, which is also affiliated to the Traumanetzwerk Nordwest accident surgery network, is certified for spinal surgery.
