Department of neurosurgery

The neurosurgery department at University Hospital Wurzburg (UKW) offers the full range of diagnostics and surgical treatment of nervous system diseases. During operations for brain and spinal cord tumours, it is essential to preserve the organ's function. Therefore the department offers modern surgical procedures in which the nerve function is constantly monitored. For microsurgical interventions on the brain and spinal cord vessels, the department uses various imaging methods, which guarantee maximum precision and safety of the intervention. Surgical treatment is preceded by a thorough diagnosis using ultrasound and radiological procedures, nuclear medicine, and interventional radiodiagnostics. The department attaches great importance to interdisciplinary treatment concepts and involves neurologists, neuroradiologists, nuclear medicine specialists and oncologists in the treatment.

The department's primary focus is the surgical treatment of brain and spinal cord tumours, vascular diseases and intracerebral haemorrhages, and diseases of the spine and peripheral nerves. The department is also among the leading pediatric neurosurgery centres in Germany. Neurosurgeons specialize in treating pathologies of the skull and malformations of the spine and spinal cord. In addition, doctors have exceptional experience in treating rare neurological diseases.
