Department of neurosurgery
The neurosurgery department at Memorial Sisli Hospital Istanbul deals with diagnosing and treating patients with diseases of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Neurosurgical intervention is preceded by diagnostics using the most modern equipment, including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, angiography, and other diagnostic studies. Surgical interventions are performed in operating rooms equipped with the latest technology. Neurosurgeons successfully use advanced neuronavigation systems, neuromonitoring, CUSA ultrasonic surgical apparatus, O-arm intraoperative computed tomography, radiosurgical systems for stereotaxic interventions and many other innovations.
