I'm 4.5 years post-op from surgery with Dr. Zeegers at the AlphaKlinik. See the results here.

I've been back to the AlphaKlinik more than a dozen times with clients over the last few years. As with all spine surgeries, results are not 100%, but the facilities and staff there are wonderful and Dr. Zeegers is amazing.

I look forward to hearing of your excellent result. If you are still in Munich on May 6th, perhaps we'll meet!

All the best,

Mark

Default You have made an excellent choice!

I have undergone 2 spine surgeries by Dr. Zeegers (5 level ADR total). My wife has had 1 (1-level ADR).
I am not exagerating when I say that I trust Dr. Zeegers 100% with my life. He has been an absolute blessing to me and my family, and I do not hesitate to recommend both his superior surgical ability, but also his masterful diagnostic skills. On top of that, he is a sincere and caring individual, as you will see when you get to Munich.
In my opinion, April is a wonderful time to go to Munich. Temperatures should be comfortable, and the spring flowers will be in bloom. I was just there last week and spring was starting to knock on winter's door.
The Alpha Klinik facilities and staff are beyond compare, in my opinion. Even the food is awesome!
If I can be of service regarding anything concerning Munich or the Alpha Klinik, please feel free to send a PM.
God Bless,
jeff

Just wishing you the best with your upcoming surgery! I'm scheduled for surgery here in the states for fusion at L5S1 and ADR at L4. Have been debating whether to do or not.. have been considering foot surgery beforehand and rescheduling which I may or may not do.
In any event, sounds like you've chosen a wonderful surgeon and a great time to travel to Munich! Best wishes for a great surgical outcome and recovery and please keep us posted! Maria
