About the Department of Adult and Pediatric Neurosurgery at Gaziosmanpasa Hospital of Yeniyuzyil University

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Gaziosmanpasa Hospital of Yeniyuzyil University offers the full range of diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the nervous system. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Idris Sertbaş.

Thanks to the excellent skills and competence of neurosurgeons, unique therapeutic methods and advanced medical equipment, the department is considered one of the best in the country. The specialists of the department take up the treatment of even extremely severe and rare pathologies of the nervous system and at the same time do everything possible to restore the health of their patients and improve their quality of life.

Neurosurgical interventions require jeweler's precision, since the nervous tissue has a very complex structure and low ability to recover. The success of the operation depends on an accurate and timely diagnosis, as well as the professionalism of surgeon. An important role is also played by the navigation and computerized systems, with the help of which surgeons achieve the optimal results. In addition, the minimally invasive techniques are widely used in clinical practice to minimize the postoperative risks, pain, and significantly reduce the hospitalization period.
