Default Seeing local doctors in Germany

Hello Everyone,

I see a lot of people that have had surgery with famous doctors (Clavel, Bertagnoli, Bierstedt, etc) and basically they are the only ones that show up on a Google search for ADR in Europe. I do not doubt on their capabilities by the way.

I work in Digital Marketing and I know how Google works, so the results we are having are not the same result a german in Germany is going to get.
Having this said, I am taking a trip to Germany for personal reasons and I am thinking on visiting local doctors specialized in ADR surgery.

¿Does anyone know a good spine center or doctors in Germany that you can visit and talk to, without an intermediary (like ONZ, Bertagnolli, etc)? I've heard good things about Dr. Desi but Cologne is out of my reach for this time.


Wish you all good spine health and thanks in advance for your comment

You may want to look into Beta Klinik in Bonn. Dr. Jung performs both cervical and lumbar ADR over there. They are not marketing much online, because they are getting plenty of patients from a special contract with a particular country. However, if you can get there, they most certainly have excellent experience in ADR surgeries.

For anyone wondering I have a contact in Germany and he says that Desai and Schmitz are the big two over there. Both are covered by German public insurance. He told me that ADR is not super common in Germany either and he had to find those names via German ADR facebook groups. Hewas offered fusion prior to that. This contact lives in Berlin and traveled to Cologne to get operated on by Desai.
