About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Neurology at the University Hospital Marburg under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Christopher Nimsky offers you the full range of neurosurgical procedures. There are annually performed over 200 operations. The Department is focused on the treatment of brain / pituitary tumors, spinal neurosurgery and pediatric neurosurgery.

The Department of Neurology at the University Hospital Marburg pays particular attention to the treatment of brain tumors. The most common brain tumors include meningiomas, glioblastomas and metastases of lung and breast cancer. The treatment involves the use of the state-of-the-art medical technology, namely intraoperative neuronavigation and cranial nerve monitoring: integration of pre-operative MRI images for the imaging of functionally important mains (DTI=diffusion tensor imaging) and eloquent brain areas (fMRI=functional magnetic resonance imaging). The treatment is interdisciplinary and all patients are discussed at tumor boards. 

The Department under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Christopher Nimsky is also focused on the surgical treatment of spinal diseases. The specialists of the University Hospital Marburg annually perform about 600 surgeries. They also offer all common surgical techniques ranging from endoscopy up to complex reconstructive surgery. At the same time, great emphasis is placed on an individual approach, whenever possible, a minimally invasive and function-preserving one. The diseases are treated by means of a ventral (from the front through the neck, thoracic or abdominal cavity) or dorsal access (from the behind through the neck or back).

The Department of Neurosurgery offers all common surgical techniques for spine treatment

  • Microsurgical or minimally invasive decompression surgery for spinal disc herniation or spinal stenosis (all sections)
  • Microsurgical operations for tumors, vascular diseases and conditions of the spine, spinal cord membrane, spinal cord and spinal nerves with the use of multimodal electrophysiological monitoring
  • Endoscopic surgery for lumbar herniated disc
  • Minimally invasive percutaneous spine instrumentation for instabilities in the thoracic and lumbar spine
  • Ventral and dorsal surgery for stabilization and fusion in case of instabilities / for reconstruction of all regions of the spine
