About us

The Neurosurgery Department at the INI is an internationally renowned hospital and a Reference Centre of the World Federation of Neurological Surgeons for the training of neurosurgeons from across the globe. We have a capacity of 96 in-patient beds for the care of the patients, divided into 4 wards. The Intensive Care Ward has 14 ventilation beds. In addition, 4 monitoring beds are available in the Recovery Ward. The Institute has 6 operating theatres with the most up to date facilities for all neurosurgical procedures. This also includes a theatre with an intra-operative MRT (Brainsuite®). The medical and nursing staff is internationally orientated since half of our patients come from abroad.
