medical service in Germany

The Neurosurgery Center is considered one of the leading institutions of this specialization in Germany, since all effective surgical techniques available in modern medicine are used here.

A robot-assisted “Da Vinci” system is installed in the center, and for the diagnosis of the disease, PET scans are available, with the help of which it is possible to track the pathology dynamics in detail.

Neurosurgical interventions are carried out by microsurgical method - this allows the doctor to act more precisely, and the patient to undergo the postoperative period faster.

In some cases, the operation is possible only on the basis of the neurosurgery center of the University Hospital of Munich, if other hospitals cannot provide proper conditions for complex diseases.
