Sveta-Troitsa-dr-Marin-Guentchev

Neck, back and low back pain are among the worst conditions people suffer from. Ass. Prof. Marin Guentchev, MD, PhD, is dedicated to the mission to make them a bad memory for as many patients as possible. After he graduated in medicine from Vienna University, he specialised in neurosurgery in Austria. He has worked at the University Hospital of Vienna University and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. Since 2011, he has been the head of unit at the Neurosurgical Clinic in Klinikum Idar-Oberstein, a hospital of the University of Mainz, Germany, and in 2015 he became a neurosurgery assistant professor at Heidelberg University. In 2016, Dr Guentchev established in Bulgaria the Trinity Medical Center – a multidisciplinary center for the treatment of spinal, neurological and musculoskeletal diseases with the most advanced conservative and surgical methods. Dr Guentchev himself specialises in the treatment of spinal diseases and spinal and pain surgery.

Why did you decide to create Trinity Medical Center?

I had a full professional journey as a physician – I started as an assistant and volunteer at the hospital of Vienna University and became the head of the Neurosurgery Clinic at St Anna Hospital in Bulgaria. I opened a private practice only after that. It gives me the independence to help patients without the pressure to oblige to a hospital's financial policy.

What from your experience as a hospital manager in Germany did you implement at Trinity Medical Center?

First, the phenomenal order and hygiene that are a trademark of German hospitals. The other thing was punctuality. For me, it is crucial that patients with an appointment do not wait more than five minutes before being admitted to the doctor's office.

Which discovery or problem in the field of neurosurgery excites you professionally?

My professional interests are mainly in the field of spinal surgery and the treatment of low back pain. I and colleagues from Germany even developed a new method for the treatment of low back pain with neurostimulation. In it, a device similar to a pacemaker stimulates the nerves and prevents them from transmitting pain. Instead of pain, the patent feels numbness. The results are impressive – the great majority of patients report that their pain has reduced from unbearable to tolerable.

What is The Spine App that you developed as well?

The relationship with my patients has always been important to me. This is why we, at Trinity Medical Center, together with a colleague from Switzerland, created The Spine App. It explains to patients with spinal diseases or trauma in an intuitive, but in-depth way what has caused their condition, what are the treatment options and the decision-making protocols. The Spine App is on Google Play and Apple Store and is available in many languages because our goal is to help as many people from all over the world as possible.
