In Neurosurgery a large spectrum of different pathologies is treated. By clicking on each of the following topics you can learn more about the diseases we treat but also the treatment modalities and surgical operations we offer.

Spine Pathology

Degenerative disorders and trauma of the spine are very frequent and thus form a large part of the pathologies we treat in our department.


Brain tumors often require a surgical intervention as the first step in their treatment. This goes for benign as well as malignant tumors. The surgical intervention as well as the ensuing follow-up and adjuvant treatment can be coordinated from our department.

Pediatric Neurosurgery

Neurosurgical diseases in children oftentimes require a very specific approach as they are often different from the adult neurosurgical entities. Our department offers a large expertise in pediatric  neurosurgery

Vascular Neurosurgery

Cranial vascular diseases are preferrably treated in a multidisciplinary fashion where the advantages and disadvantages of each treatment modality is carefully evaluated.

Pituitary surgery

Diseases of the pituitary gland, a gland at the base of the brain, require a multidisciplinary approach. The endocrinologist and neurosurgeon work closely together in order to provide optimal treatment. In case of surgery, these operations can be performed through the nose.

Functional Neurosurgery

Functional neurosurgery is a broad field within neurosurgery where often minimally invasive methods are used to implant electrodes that modulate the functioning of the nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves). Different types of pain can be treated in this fashion.


Radiosurgery is a form of radiotherapy that can sometimes serve as an alternative for a surgical procedure. The radiotherapist and neurosurgeon decide together which treatment is suitable and plan and perform the therapy together.

Peripheral Nerve surgery

Functioning of the peripheral nerves can be disrupted by pathology, mainly by compression of the nerve. The carpal tunnel syndrome is the most frequent example of this. Surgical decompression of the nerve is indicated in most cases of severe compression.
