Diseases of the brain and the spinal cord, as well as of the the encasing structures and peripheral nerves, are treated at the Paediatric Neurosurgery Department. In cooperation with our colleagues in the departments for anesthesia, intensive care, neonatology and paediatrics, and in particular, with the Paediatric Social Service Center, we are able to offer comprehensive neurosurgical care for children and, in individual cases, also for adults.
The interdisciplinary care of special surgical cases is available in the operating room at all times due to our close cooperation with the cardiac and orthopaedic departments.
The neurosurgical team has long-term experience in the complete field of neurosurgery, particularly in paediatric neurosurgery.
All the commonly prevalent neurological disorders in children and adolescents
can be treated at our center.
We focus on:
- Premature craniosynostosis
- Brain tumor surgery
- Hydrocephalus and cystic brain lesions
- Chiari malformation and syringomyelia
- Spinal dysraphism and tethered cord
- Disorders and trauma of the craniocervical junction
