Department of Neurosurgery and Interventional Neuroradiology annually admits over 670 patients with brain astrocytoma. Tumor and its metastases are completely removed with the help of innovative technique – laser ablation by miniature flexible catheter under the MRI-guidance. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Thomas Gasser, a member of the German Society of Neurosurgery and the World Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery.

The Department of Neurosurgery and Spinal Surgery offers the full range of services for the diagnostics and surgical treatment of diseases of the brain, spinal cord, spine and peripheral nerves. The department uses neuronavigation systems, 3D x-ray, intraoperative dopplerography, stereotaxy, electrophysiology, high-precision surgical microscopes and many other advanced devices that guarantee the effective and safe treatment. The department's surgeons are top-class professionals with rich clinical experience. The doctors always prefer sparing minimally invasive surgical techniques, while classic open surgery is performed only in complex clinical cases. State-of-the-art computer equipment allows the doctors to perform accurate planning of the neurosurgical intervention based on CT and MRI scans, which practically reduces the risk of developing a neurological deficit after the surgical treatment.
The Department of Neurosurgery offers the full range of services in its area of specialization. The department successfully performs operations to treat diseases and injuries of the brain, spinal cord and spine. It also has a 24-hour emergency medical service. Close cooperation with specialists in the field of orthopedics and traumatology, radiology, anesthesiology and early rehabilitation allows providing comprehensive medical care. The patients can be confident that they will receive interdisciplinary and most effective treatment. Clinical practice is based on an individual approach to each patient and his clinical situation. In addition, high treatment success rates are achieved through the use of the most advanced computer-assisted medical technologies – navigation systems allow performing interventions on the brain and spinal cord with pinpoint accuracy, guaranteeing the patient maximum safety.
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Neurosurgery performs the full range of surgical interventions to treat diseases of the brain and spinal cord, peripheral nervous system. The department admits both adults and children. The specially trained team of pediatric neurosurgeons takes care of the health of young patients. The key attention in clinical practice is paid to the surgical treatment of oncological diseases of the nervous system, including tumors of the brain, spinal canal, skull base and pituitary gland. The surgical treatment of epilepsy in adults and children, operations for aneurysms and vascular malformations are also among the priority areas of work of the department's neurosurgeons. The interventions are performed in high-tech operating rooms, in compliance with all standards of hygiene and safety. Most surgical procedures are carefully planned using computed tomography and brain mapping systems, which excludes damage to functionally important anatomical structures. Whenever possible, the preference is given to sparing surgical techniques, with surgical access through one or more small incisions.
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Neurosurgery offers the full range of services in this field. The department specializes in the surgical treatment of diseases of the brain, spine and peripheral nerves in adults and children. During the treatment, the department uses the very latest surgical techniques and technical equipment, for example, robotic spinal surgery. The department is one of the leading neurosurgical medical institutions in Germany and Europe.
