Emergency admissions around the clock
The Swiss Paraplegic Centre (SPC) Nottwil is recognised by the Union of Swiss Surgical Societies as a specialist clinic for delivering primary care to patients with spinal cord injuries. Emergency patients are admitted around the clock. Immediate treatment by experienced specialists guarantees that damage to the spinal cord and spinal column are kept to a minimum.
Statistics and experience clearly demonstrate that: In 80% of cases, damage to the spinal column and spinal cord is not definitive in the immediate aftermath of an accident. In the first six hours there are real opportunities to alleviate or fully avoid the threat of paraplegia. Sadly, it is generally too late after that.
In addition to admission to a specialist clinic by the most direct means, correct acute care also has a decisive bearing on long-term effects in victims. The competence of the Swiss Paraplegic Centre is reflected, among other things, in the fact that it receives an increasing number of accident victims. They are then in the right place for the subsequent holistic rehabilitation.
