About

Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiß is an internationally-recognised specialist in the field of treatment of spinal deformities. From 1992 to 2008 he was chief physician of a specialised rehabilitation clinic. He has held his own practice since 2009. As an internationally-renowned specialist, Dr. Weiß treats patients at home and abroad. Patients from around the world come to his office in Gensingen.

Dr. Weiß has influenced and refined the non-surgical treatment of spinal deformities significantly. He has developed smaller and more convenient corsets as well as more modern physiotherapy concepts, which he has passed on to therapists around the word.

As an national and international author of guidelines, the exact classification and forecasting of spinal deformities is easy for him. Thereby his patients have above-average treatment safety.

For spinal deformities he prepares scoliosis and kyphosis treatments plans in growing children but also for their sequelae in adulthood.

Scoliosis is a lateral displacement of the vertebrae against each other. Complaints from patients are rare in mild and moderate deformities. Only in extremely rare, extremely pronounced scoliosis can versatile symptoms occur among others by narrowing the internal organs, such as back pain, breathing difficulties, chronic heart changes. Rarely there may be painful, chronic sequelae due to degenerative changes in the intervertebral discs.

Dr. Weiß is especially skilled in the field of scoliosis treatment and in the treatment of spine changes. If you have any questions about your disease you can ask him. For information about the latest aspects of corset treatment click here.
