About the department keyboard_arrow_down

Neurosurgery is an extremely high-precision branch of medicine, with the expertise and excellent tools being the basic condition for achieving optimal results. Neurosurgeon uses minimally invasive processes that reduce pain and hospital stay, as well as provides direct accompanying treatment.

Neurosurgery deals with surgical treatment of diseases of the nervous system. For the convenience of our patients, and to provide the most effective treatment, we offer a modern infrastructure, long-term experience of neurosurgeons, as well as our own techniques enabling the neurosurgeon to use modern operating methods in a more competent way. The interdisciplinary approach and great opportunities ensured by the collegial exchange of opinions ensure quality service to patients in Eastern Switzerland as well.
