Cerebrovascular Surgery-Vascular Neurosurgery

The treatment of vascular malformations of the brain aims at removing these, or decouple them from the regular vascular brain circulation in order to prevent a hemorrhage or other sequelae. The potential treatment methods are more diverse then ever. A thorough assessment is key.

Surgery is not always necessary

Vascular neurosurgery treats diseases of brain and spinal cord vasculature. Here, neurosurgery works very close together with Neuroradiologie, neurology, and radiation therapy. So, treatment strategies are often coordinated between these disciplines. My aim is to find the individually best treatment option for the patient. This requires a careful risk-benefit analysis. To conveye a comprehensible recommendation is important to me. For the surgical treatment I use small, cosmetically pleasing approaches. One of our propagated methods is retractorless neurosurgery. It avoids the use of brain spatula.
