About the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology at University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf

The Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology at the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf offers the full range of advanced imaging examinations and minimally invasive treatment of diseases of the brain and spinal cord, as well as of brain meninges and nearby anatomical structures. Key attention is also paid to the treatment of cervical and cerebral vascular stenosis, aneurysms and vascular malformations. To provide comprehensive medical care, there is maintained close cooperation with the experts in radiology, neurology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, oral and maxillofacial surgery and other specialists.
