About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Neurosurgery at the University Hospital Giessen under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Eberhard Uhl offers the entire spectrum of neurosurgical procedures. There are annually performed about 2,000 operations. The specialists of the Department practice modern medicine, which takes care of patients’ individual needs and meets international recommendations of evidence-based medicine. The Department specializes in brain tumor, spinal and vascular neurosurgery, as well as pituitary tumors. Special attention is paid to pediatric neurosurgery.

The most common brain tumors are meningioma, glioblastoma and lung or breast cancer metastases. In most cases neurosurgical procedure is performed to alleviate symptoms, such as headache, epileptic seizures or palsy. The expediency of the surgery is determined individually for each patient.

To provide surgical treatment of brain tumors, the neurosurgeons of the University Hospital Giessen regularly use 5-ALA fluorescence-guided procedure in combination with neuronavigation. The Department of Neurosurgery under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Eberhard Uhl is one of the European training centers for the specialists who use fluorescence-guided resection techniques.

Pediatric neurosurgery is an independent subspecialty of the Department of Neurosurgery at the University Hospital Giessen. The range of medical services in pediatric neurosurgery covers all surgical diseases and injuries of the brain / spinal cord and peripheral nerves in children, abnormalities of the skull or spina bifida with the related conditions, premature closure of the sutures of the skull (craniosynostosis), all types of hydrocephalus, vascular malformations of the brain or spinal cord and special surgical procedures for treatment-resistant epilepsy (vagus nerve stimulation).

Surgical techniques in pediatric neurosurgery include navigation-guided microsurgical procedures (neuronavigation, frame-based or frame-free stereotaxy), intraoperative imaging (up-to-date ultrasound methods) and electrophysiological monitoring (neuromonitoring). Special focus is placed on minimally invasive endoscopic surgical techniques (special endoscopic systems for children).
