Neurosurgery focuses on the conservative and surgical treatment of diseases of the brain, the spine, the spinal cord and the peripheral nerves.
The Neurosurgery Department of Mediterraneo First Care is staffed with experienced Neurosurgeons, who provide personalized services in a prompt, responsible and safe manner.
The following conditions are treated:
- Cerebral small vessel disease (SVD)
- Extrapyramidal disorders (eg Parkinson’s disease, dystonia) & various forms of tremor
- Cerebrospinal fluid (CNS) disorders – Hydrocephalus
- Brain biopsies
- Trigeminal neuralgia
Brain surgery is performed either urgently in cases when the patient’s life is in imminent danger of or it can be scheduled to treat multiple conditions.
Brain surgery has evolved over the last 20 years, and the results are impressive compared to previous decades.
A plethora of technological improvements that are now available to Neurosurgeons have contributed to dramatically increasing success rates:
Such as the use of an operating microscope , intraoperative radioscopy, intraoperative angiography and computed tomography, navigation devices, neurophysiological monitoring during surgery , which help check nerve route status, integrity and topography.
All this equipment is actually available in the Operating Rooms of Mediterraneo Hospital and helps neurosurgeons in their daily practice, even in the most demanding cases.
