About us


Germany is among the leading medical locations in the world in health care. So, the University Hospital Cologne also has an important role in the medical market. The University Hospital Cologne performs research in respect of the origins and treatment options of conditions, while taking the care of its patients into account.

With its subsidiary company, University Hospital Cologne International (UHC), the University Hospital Cologne also enables international patients to utilise the University’s top-class medical services.

General neurosurgery includes the surgical treatment of conditions in the region of the brain, the spinal column, the spinal cord and the nervous system. We provide our patients with a comprehensive range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures at the cutting edge of university medical research and technology. For the treatment of our patients, we think it important to tailor diagnostics and treatment individually to the needs of the patient.

Thanks to our various specialist practices and our close connection with the University Hospital Cologne, we are also able to refer our patients to other specialist departments and thus to guarantee a complete university-standard of treatment in one location.

The welfare of our patients always takes first place in our diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. As well as an optimised treatment programme, we are therefore always mindful of the patient's comfort during all procedures in our practices and in the hospital. We provide the highest level of diagnostic reliability, which is guaranteed by a highly qualified team of employees, experienced specialists and ultramodern equipment.

We are happy to answer any enquiries and we are delighted to cater for your concerns.
