Specialist for neurosurgery/neurosurgeon
A neurosurgeon is an expert in operations for diseases of the brain, the spinal cord, the nerves and the spine. With the aid of neuronavigation, brain tumours can be removed while to a great extent sparing healthy brain tissue. During this procedure, the neurosurgical specialist is supported optimally by intraoperative ultrasound imaging and neuromonitoring. The operative approach is used in particular for spinal and spinal marrow injuries, degenerative changes, inflammations and tumours. The medical focal points of neurosurgeons include spinal surgery for herniated discs, spinal canal stenosis, vertebral fracture, vertebral tumours and neurodegenerative diseases, hypophyseal tumours, basilar skull tumours and nerve and spinal disc disorders.
In addition to specialised surgical skills, neurosurgeons also have a great deal of knowledge about diagnostic procedures as well as disease-related pre- and postoperative treatment. To become a specialist in neurosurgery, a physician must complete six years of postgraduate surgical training.
Therapeutic range of services in neurosurgery
