About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The new Neurosurgery Center at the University Hospital Cologne in Germany is a center of excellence in research and patient care. It is divided into two departments: the Department of General Neurosurgery, which ensures the care of patients with surgically treatable diseases of the nervous system, and the Department of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery.

The objective of the Department of General Neurosurgery, headed by Prof. Dr. Roland Goldbrunner, is a surgical treatment of diseases of brain, spine, bone marrow and nerves. The Department of General Neurosurgery offers to You a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in accordance with the latest achievements of researches and technology. However, a particular attention is paid to the development of an individual treatment program for every patient. Due to the numerous research projects, the patients are provided with the top quality diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. As a part of the Neurosurgery Center at the University Hospital Cologne, due to a close neighborhood and fruitful cooperation with the Department of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, the Department provides a comprehensive medical treatment and care. This has a favorable effect on the patient care on both inpatient and outpatient bases. 

The focuses of the Department of General Neurosurgery, under the direction of Prof. Dr. Roland Goldbrunner, include:

  • Brain tumors of all kinds
  • Vascular disease of the central nervous system
  • Diseases of the pituitary gland (pituitary)
  • Congenital and acquired diseases of the spine
  • Surgically treatable diseases of the peripheral nervous system (for example, carpal tunnel syndrome)

The Department of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery of the Neurosurgery Center under the direction of Univ.-Prof. Dr. Veerle Visser-Vandewalle offers to You a wide range of services in the fields of stereotaxy and functional neurosurgery. The goal of stereotactic surgery is the diagnosis of deep hotbeds of diseases as well as the treatment of movement disorders and certain forms of chronic pain (functional stereotaxy). Functional neurosurgery deals with the operations of the peripheral nervous system, i.e. beyond the brain. Spasticity and pain are also subject to the treatment. Therefore, for example, the stimulation systems can be implanted into the spinal cord or peripheral nerves.

The focuses of the Department of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, headed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Veerle Visser-Vandewalle, include:

  • Treatment of benign and malignant tumors
  • Radiation, where the radiation source is embedded into the cancerous tumor
  • Radiosurgical procedures such as LINAC- and CyberKnife radiosurgery
  • Deep brain stimulation
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • CT-guided nerve root blocks.
