About the department

The department of neurosurgery at Academic Hospital Bundeswehr Berlin serves the entire spectrum of diagnostics and surgical therapy for diseases of the brain, spinal cord, spine and peripheral nerves. 4 specialists and 6 assistant physicians are working at the department. There are 19 beds and other intensive care treatment places. For optimal treatment of the patients, the experts defined treatment paths for all clinical pictures, which ensure standardized procedures. The department has extensive diagnostic and surgical options based on modern equipment, including neuronavigation, 3D X-rays, intraoperative Doppler sonography, stereotaxy, electrophysiology, and a microscope. This enables physicians to treat patients comprehensively and follow the applicable guidelines and standards in neurosurgery. Furthermore, the department works actively on scientific issues, especially in connection with military medical problems. For example, local scientists are participating in a study to evaluate intervertebral disc prosthetics. They are members of a working group that deals with optimizing traumatological care in German armed forces missions abroad.

The department's treatment and diagnosis are aimed at the brain and spinal tumours, injuries, and neurovascular and vascular disorders of the central nervous system. There are options for conservative advice and surgery, including microsurgery.
