Recognised private clinic
The Avicenna Clinic is a recognised private clinic with a concession granted by the Berlin Senate (licensed in accordance with Section 30 of the Industrial Code, Hospital Supervision, State Office for Health and Social Affairs, Turmstr. 21, 10559 Berlin).
If you would like a personal consultation and advice from one of our clinic doctors, you can arrange an appointment at any time by calling +49 30 236083-401. This telephone number is also the one to call if you need any information or would like to confirm an existing appointment. Please bring with you to your appointment - if you have them - copies of your latest imaging investigations (such as MRI scans, no older than 3 months) of the part of your body you are consulting us about (neck, lumbar spine, joint or skull).
If you are able to do this, the images you bring along will be used as part of the consultation, investigations, assessment and explanation of your condition, along with recommendations for treatment. The clinic charges Euro 280 for this service.
If you do not have any up-to-date (MRI) scan results to bring with you, we can carry out these investigations for you. The cost of a standard MRI scan is around € 310.00.
You will be offered a treatment recommendation at your personal consultation. We will explain the advantages, disadvantages, alternatives, risks, duration, costs, procedure and so on to you so that all of your questions will be answered. If you agree to our treatment recommendation, you can stay with us to receive it or you can be admitted at a later date.
Sending of investigations
Before you come in to see us, you can also send us your documentation, MRI scans and results by post to the clinic's address (Avicenna Klinik, Paulsborner Str. 2, 10709 Berlin, Germany or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will then take a careful look at your documents. If we have any questions, we will be in touch with you. After this, we will offer you a treatment recommendation with an explanation of the advantages, disadvantages, alternatives, risks, duration, costs, procedure, etc. so that all your questions are answered.
If you agree with our recommended treatment, you can arrange an admission with our colleague in the International Patients department. We charge Euro 280 for this service. Please only send us copies of your images, documents or CDs, not the originals.
The Clinic accepts no responsibility for lost documentation. Documents sent to us without prior discussion with our colleague cannot be dealt with.
Based on your symptoms, the results of investigations and the MRI scans of the area affected, we will recommend a treatment for you: conservative treatment, physiotherapy, minimally invasive procedures or surgery. We will explain the advantages and disadvantages of the various treatment options to you. If you decide to go ahead with the treatment we recommend, the price you will be quoted will be a flat-rate sum. This price generally contains the overall costs.
You are experiencing symptoms of mild changes to your spine or joints and we decide the best course of treatment would be 2 to 3 weeks of conservative therapy as an outpatient. You will be offered a price for this. The price depends on your condition, what type of treatment you will be receiving and how often. You will be responsible for paying any hotel costs, sustenance and travel costs.
You have a moderate or severe condition and we decide to admit you for minimally invasive treatment or a surgery. You will be quoted a flat-rate price for this which includes all the necessary pre-operative diagnostic procedures, the intervention or surgery itself, any anaesthetic, hospital inpatient costs, ward care, all necessary post-operative monitoring diagnostic procedures and treatment of any complications associated with this course of treatment. This covers all services - from admission to discharge or transfer.
Not included are the costs of hotels, flights, companions, treatment of other conditions, rehabilitation or transport costs. These services can be organised for you if you wish and charged separately. As a result, the costs for all services prior to admission or after discharge are not included in the flat-rate sum.
The actual price depends on the severity of your condition (one side, one segment, multiple segments, cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, knee, hip, head, vertebral disc protrusion, severe spinal canal stenosis, vertebral fracture, tumour, brain tumour, knee arthrosis, bone fracture, etc.), the severity of any accompanying conditions (obesity, diabetes, previous surgery, etc.), the complexity of the operation (laser, percutaneous nucleotomy, microsurgery, stabilisation, vertebral body replacement, joint replacement, etc.) and other factors.
You will be offered a specific cost quotation prior to the start of treatment. We will invoice you directly. If you have any questions, please talk to our colleagues by calling +49 30 236 083 401 or e-mail them at email@example.com. We will be happy to answer any queries you may have.
