Department of neurosurgery, neuro-oncology and vascular neurosurgery

The department of neurosurgery, neuro-oncology and vascular neurosurgery at University Hospital rechts der Isar of the Technical University (TUM) Munich treats diseases of the brain (brain tumours) and the spine. There are four state-of-the-art operating theatres. The department can treat around 2,700 inpatients and 4,100 outpatients annually. For inpatients, there are three-bedded rooms with 54 regular room beds, 16 beds in a total of four monitoring units, and a variable number of intensive care beds in surgical intensive care units. The team comprises a chief professor, seven senior physicians, three specialists, 17 assistant physicians, and nurses and supporting staff. The department is recognized as a neuro-oncological centre by the German Cancer Society. Furthermore, the neurosurgery, trauma surgery, and orthopaedics clinics were certified as the first "Level 1 spine centre" in Germany by the German Spine Society. In addition, the clinic for neurosurgery is an integral part of the interdisciplinary centre for neurovascular diseases of the University Hospital rechts der Isar. It works closely with neuroradiology to treat nervous system diseases related to vascular origin.

The department specializes in skull base surgery, neuro-oncology, spinal surgery, vascular neurosurgery, pediatric neurosurgery, pain therapy and functional neurosurgery (deep brain stimulation). Spinal surgery ranges from minimally invasive treatments to motion-preserving techniques and restorative (reconstructive) surgery using the latest technologies and implants.
