Checklist: The more comprehensive the information on previous investigations, imaging or treatments, the better we can assign your patient to an appropriate investigation and treatment pathway.

In principle, all patients with a spinal problem can be referred. We will carry out a triage and assign the patient to the most suitable assessment and treatment pathway.

Emergencies: In the event of an emergency or suspected emergency, we ask you to refer patients directly to our interdisciplinary emergency ward.

Children and adolescents (up to the age of 18): Are treated by spinal experts at the University Children's Hospital Basel in the Orthopaedics Clinic at UKBB .
