Special Clinical Focus

  • Microsurgical treatment of brain tumors
  • Therapy of skull base tumors (pituitary adenoma, acoustic neuroma)
  • Surgical therapy of cerebrovascular malformations (aneurysms, angioma)
  • Minimally invasive therapy of herniated discs / spinal stenoses
  • Stabilization of spinal deformities
  • Surgical treatment of spinal tumors

About us

Medical care, research and science are the main tasks of the Department of Neurosurgery which is located on the campus Benjamin Franklin (CBF), campus Virchow Medical Center (CVK) and campus Charité (CCM, research only). At these three locations, we cover the complete spectrum of disorders of the peripheral and central nervous system. Each year, we perform about 4,000 surgeries in our modern operating rooms. The whole staff of the Department of Neurosurgery is delighted at your interest in our institute. We are available for you 24/7.
