Neurosurgery is the medical specialty that deals with the surgery of the brain, the spinal cord and the nerves. The recent developments in the field of diagnostics, therapy and new methods in surgery have led to more modern services and possibilities neurosurgery can offer to its patients today, but that were impossible earlier.
Highly reputable neurosurgical centers in Turkish hospitals have multidisciplinary staff, including surgeons, neurologists, anesthetists, and intensive care specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, physical therapy and rehabilitation specialists, physiotherapists, nurses and technicians each educated in their fields according to global standards, with wide medical knowledge and experience in their respective fields.
Diagnosis and treatment methods based on all the possibilities technology can offer are implemented in all service and intensive care units. The services are offered in areas such as neuro-oncology, cerebrovascular surgery, epilepsy, spine surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, stereotactic and functional neurosurgery, periferic nerve surgery, and neuro-spinal trauma. Neuro-monitoring is used during operations. Surgical treatment of tumors stemming from the brain, spinal cord or nerve membranes, tumors of pituitary gland and skull base is based on microsurgery methods.
Neurovascular (Blood Vessels) Surgery
Neurovascular surgery includes the surgery of subarachnoidal hemorrhage, aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation of the brain and the spinal cord and several stroke cases. Furthermore, “by-pass” operations applicable in some cases of brain embolism are also realized in neurosurgery successfully.
Specialized neurology and neurosurgery team carries out epilepsy operation successfully. They use epilepsy monitoring and neuromonitoring.
Spinal Surgery (Surgery of the Spine and the Spinal Cord)
Disc herniation operations, spinal cord canal constriction and calcification due to aging, tumors of the spine and the spinal cord, congenital spine and spinal cord disorders, degenerative scoliosis therapy are all carried out using microsurgery methods. Spine fractures due to accidents or osteoporosis, even spine tumors are treated successfully under local anesthesia using kyphoplastic and vertebroplastic methods.
Diseases of the brain and the spinal cord occuring in neonatal and pediatric age group such as tumors, hydrocephalus spinal sac (meningomyelocele, tethered cord) are treated successfully with microsurgery methods.
Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery
Brain stimulation with microelectrodes can be performed by using stereotactic methods. In case of trigeminal neuralgia and cancer pains surgical therapy is applied.
Periferic Nerve Surgery
Microsurgery methods are also used for the therapy of all nerve impressions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrom as well as nerve and plexus incisions and injuries..
Skull and spine trauma is real problem all over the world. A current therapy with the contribution of technology is applied in both cases.
