What is a neurosurgeon?

The neurosurgeon is a specialist in surgical interventions in the central, peripheral and vegetative nervous system. The specialist in neurosurgery not only takes care of injuries, diseases and undesirable developments in the structures of the major nervous systems (CNS, PNS), but also the blood vessels and sheaths that supply them. In addition, there are preliminary examinations as well as subsequent measures for therapy and rehabilitation.

Neurosurgery is the sub-area of surgery that specifically deals with the central and peripheral nervous system. With his narrowly defined activity, which includes both technical-operative and functional-physiological knowledge, the specialist in neurosurgery serves his own special and at the same time demanding medical field between the specialist areas of surgery and neurology.

In contrast to those in general surgery, operations in neurosurgery usually relate to extremely small areas and structures and are not infrequently carried out as part of microsurgical interventions. In addition, there is the close interweaving of injury or illness and neural functions, which the neurosurgeon must know and take into account in their complexity.

The neurosurgery specialist will accompany the patient both before and after the operation. He explains the procedure, the goal and the consequences of the operation and, together with other specialists, discusses the subsequent therapy and the corresponding rehabilitation measures.

What does a neurosurgeon do?

The following examination and treatment methods are carried out in the medical department of neurosurgery.

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Electro-encephalogram (EEG)
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Electrophysiological examination
  • Lumbar puncture
  • Palliative medicine
  • Pain pacemaker
