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.

Prevention

To work for the primary prevention is an important professional and social function for us.

This has three main fields:

1. Primary prevention of discopathy (work started in 1995)
2. Daily physical education (work started in 1995)
3. Holistic health promotion (HHP) in schools (work started in 2003).

(Of course HHP in schools does contain also the primary prevention of discopathy and daily physical education.)

We are working in strong cooperation with the Departments for Education and for Health (since 2010 both in one ministry, the Ministry of Human Capacities).
