Spinal Cord Injury Center
Our “care from one source” is unique in Germany. We provide care for patients with spinal cord injuries starting at the location of the accident throughout the acute phase and rehabilitation up to hospital discharge, and also we provide life-long support through an interdisciplinary team.
The main emphases of our department are science and clinical research in order to ensure treatment of spinal cord injuries at the highest level and according to the latest research standards.
Due to the close cooperation with the center for spinal cord injuries our main focus lies on neurourology which refers above all to diagnostics and therapy of neurogenic bladder dysfunctions.
Precise diagnostic methods at the highest technical level combined with our comprehensive experience allow an exact analysis of bladder dysfunctions and an individualized strategy for therapy for each patient, be it by means of medication or surgery. The urology department of our clinic performs more than 2000 examinations of malfunctioning bladders every year using two parallel operable measuring units for video urodynamic diagnostics. This fact alone underlines our worldwide expertise in this specialized field.
New pioneering therapies were also developed in Murnau such as the metered sphincterotomy, laser sphincterotomy and in particular botulinum toxin A treatment of the hyperactive urinary bladder.
