The National Center for Spinal Disorders, an affiliate of the Buda Health Center, is the only hospital in Hungary covering virtually the entire diagnostic and treatment spectrum of all disorders of the spine.


Free University of Hegyvidék


We gave three lectures in 2013 starting off with the musculoskeletal system wherein we covered disorders of the spine and their prevention.  In the second lecture, we discussed what constitutes a healthy diet and the warnings concerning diseases of the internal organs, then, covered hair loss and its causes in our third lecture.

The lectures were very successful and were followed with much interest as evidenced by articles and TV programs that followed.


Our first lecture of January 30, 2014 entitled „Guidelines for the Conservative (non-surgical) Treatment of the Most Common Spinal Disorders” presented by Mária Ferenc, MD, was again a big success.  The topic of osteoporosis was also covered with the reminder that prevention must start while we are young.       

Prime risk factors of osteoporosis:

  • Cumulatively found in family history
  • Smoking
  • Excessive coffee
  • Significant and continual alcohol consumption
  • Insufficient calcium and vitamin D
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Thin build
  • Early (natural or artificially induced) menopause
  • Continuing steroidal therapy

Osteoporosis therapy:

  • Medicinal pain management
  • Special osteoporosis preparations of vitamin D, calcium replacement, magnesium and K2 vitamin
  • Physiotherapy, kinesiotherapy
  • Health aids (per condition, degree of independence) – walking stick, rolling walker, flexible corset, back support (Spinomed)
  • Diet rich in calcium (women to 50 years 1000 mg/day, over 50 years 1300-1500 mg/day), milk, yoghurt, cheese, broccoli, almonds, seafood, sardines, etc.
  • Diet rich in vitamin D (1000-1200 NE /day – depending on the current vitamin D level), kefir, yoghurt, cream, hard cheese, margarine, fish, herring, salmon, cod liver, egg yolks, mushrooms, etc.
Suspension of outpatient and inpatient care in non-acute cases

Dear Visitor,

Amidst the current epidemiological situation and in line with the orders of the competent government bodies, the Buda Health Center (BEK Kft.) is suspending its outpatient and inpatient care in non-acute cases. This mainly pertains to the National Center for Spinal Disorders’ surgical care: as of today, the institute will only see patients in need of acute spinal treatment based on the referral of a general practitioner or a medical clinic specialist. We would like to ask our Patients not to make any further appointments as we will only keep this option open for referring doctors.      

As far as ongoing treatments are concerned, our dispatchers will continuously keep patients posted following the guidance of their respective doctors. Should you have any questions, we recommend contacting your doctor via email through the institute’s email address.      

This measure will change based on central orders upon the alleviation of the epidemic.
