About us

Neurosurgery addresses complex disorders, injuries and congenital malformations of the central and peripheral nervous system. This includes the brain, the spinal cord and the nerves in the arms and legs. Particularly for the diagnosis and treatment of disorders which affect the brain and its blood vessels, the experience of a specialist is needed. Prof. Francisco J. de Moura Theophilo possesses outstanding expertise. In around 40 years as a neurosurgeon, Prof. Theophilo has proven himself to be an exceptional authority, on a national and an international level, within his medical specialty. His numerous specialist publications and links to scientific associations attest to his comprehensive specialist knowledge, which he invariably keeps up to date with the current medical insights. Prof. Theophilo works at the Helios Hospital, Munich West and at the Helios Hospital, Munich in Perlach (spinal surgery) as a specialist in neurosurgery.

Various positions as Professor and neurosurgeon, as well as multiple positions as Chief Resident have shaped his professional career. Thus, Prof. Theophilo can provide his patients with comprehensive specialist knowledge and individual therapeutic concepts, preceded, of course, by a detailed consultation. The therapeutic emphases of neurosurgery include the treatment and surgical removal of cerebral tumors and neuroendoscopic procedures to the pituitary gland (hypophysis). The principle always applies: proceed gently for the patient so that only the affected tissue is treated. Pinpoint surgery is possible thanks to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. For conditions such as aneurysms and angiomata, which affect very fine cerebral vascular structures, interdisciplinary collaborating specialists are also involved in the treatment. Injuries such as a traumatic brain injury following an accident or congenital disorders such as hydrocephalus are also treated by Prof. Theophilo proficiently and with empathy. Prof. Theophilo is a highly specialized expert in neurosurgery and provides comprehensive treatment in a highly complex and differentiated specialist medical field, embedded into the cutting edge infrastructure at the sites of the Helios Hospital, Munich West and the Helios Hospital, Munich in Perlach.
