What would you recommend in Munich

Back pain

Severe back pain or spinal diseases are not uncommon - around 80% of the population suffer from pain, paralysis or restricted mobility that severely restrict everyday life.


Back surgery is not always necessary. If possible, we treat you conservatively: with a combination of injection therapy, regenerative medicine and physiotherapy.


Should an operation be necessary, we carry it out with a lot of experience, high precision and the latest technology in minimally invasive, microsurgical and navigated interventions at the ISAR Clinic.

For me the best doctor in the world
"I have been with Dr. Rothörl since 2011 and have already operated on me once and once both of them desolate to my complete satisfaction. In 2017 I was very heavily supported and all the doctors called and nobody had time. The ladies from the registration told me that the doctor in the operating room . If the doctor has time they would contact me that was after 20 minutes. I could come at 2 p.m. I was there at 2 p.m. and Dr. Rothörl also which doctor does that thank you very much "

Professionally competent and human doctor
"In October 2016, Dr. Rothörl operated on the spinal canal and I am very satisfied with the result of the operation as well as with the care of the doctor - who came in twice a day. I can recommend this doctor without reservation."

In almost uncanny perfection
"Even if the program draws my attention not to give top marks in an undifferentiated manner: Yes. That's exactly how it is. Dr. Rothörl listens - always, without exception - with great concentration, does not talk around it and tries with shocking exemplary quality to do his patients justice . I am very satisfied with the operations I have survived, the clinic is (incidentally) a real dream and almost invites you to linger - no, seriously: you can really relax there after overcoming exertions.
