Iprenburg Spine Clinic – Unique Treatment For The Removal Of Herniated Discs

32-300Iprenburg Spine Clinic is an independent treatment centre. We specialise in performing a unique and innovative surgical technique to remove spinal hernias and foraminal stenoses more effectively and faster. We do this by using a unique endoscopic procedure known as PTED (Percutaneous Transforaminal Endoscopic Discectomy). Iprenburg Spine Clinic is the only clinic in The Netherlands that has experience using this technique.

When you visit us Iprenburg Spine Clinic you will find a dedicated and experienced medical team at your disposal, and you will be treated in a comfortable environment. Surgery takes place on an outpatient basis and under local anesthesia. In the majority of cases, our patients are able to go home pain free within two hours of having surgery.

You will be assisted by a specialised team before, during, and after surgery. This experienced team consists of an anesthetist, nurse anesthetists, theatre assistants, and radiographers.

At our spinal clinic we keep the number of procedures low so that we can work quickly and efficiently. After working at a general hospital for 27 years and treating over 20,000 patients, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Iprenburg has decided to focus his work on delivering even better patient care.

Outpatient Endoscopic Disc Surgery

At the Iprenburg Spinal Clinic we perform the following procedures:

  • Endoscopic removal of herniated discs in the lumbar spine.
  • Treatment of stenoses or foraminal narrowing (the constriction of the nerve tunnel within the spinal canal), usually in combination with a spinal hernia.
  • Treatment of stenoses or foraminal narrowing in the spinal canal, usually in combination with a bulging intervertebral disc, facet joint osteoarthritis, thickening of the joint capsule, or a combination of these conditions.
