Areas of service

  • VascularNeurosurgery
  • Aneurysm surgery
  • AVM surgery
  • Carotid endarterectomy surgery
  • Intracerebral hematoma surgery
  • Ischemic stroke (stroke) surgery
  • By-pass
  • Indirect cerebral revascularization
  • Decompressive craniectomy
Surgical interventions are performed bu using micro surgical and endoscopic techniques to the oncologic pathologies of central nerve system in adult and pediatric patients. Long term treatment planning in terms of chemotherapy and radiotherapy is done by evaluating these cases at multidisciplinary council (neurosurgeon, radiation oncologist and internal oncologist).
Traumatic, congenital and degeneratibe diseases of the spine are performed surgical intervention. “Minimally invasive spine center” is the center where microsurgical and endoscopic disc surgery (herniated disc) as well as endoscopic spinal instrumentation procedures are performed and rehabilitation treatments are planned together with PTR department.
Surgical intervention is applied for congenital or acquired cranial and spinal pediatric pathologiesvia microsurgical and endoscopic techniques. Oncologic and vascular pathologies , hydrocephaly and spinal dysraphism anomalies which are especially very common during newborn period can be counted within those
Emergent neurosurgical interventions are performed for the patients having general body trauma, head trauma or only having head trauma. Low morbidity and mortality are achieved under a treatment plan with intensive care- reanimation unit.
Surgeries of pump insertion in patients of spacticity and pain, insertion of nerve stimulator for appropriate epilepsy patients are performed.
Gamma Knife

Gamma Knife

Target oriented, surgery-free single treatment in brain diseases. Being one of the most developed methods in treatment of diseases that affect the brain, Gamma Knife is accepted as golden standard of stereotactic radio surgery. Being one of the most developed methods in treatment of diseases that affect the brain, Gamma Knife is accepted as golden standard of stereotactic radio surgery.

INTRA-OPERATIVE MR

INTRA-OPERATIVE MR

Perop instant MRI. It is the imaging sytstem that confirms the total removal of the tumor during surgery. After starting the remowal of trhe tumor, performing new MRI is required after reaching a certain stage. This is possible by performing intra-operative MRI during the surgery. Thus, rate of failure is minimized and the tumor can be removed totally with least risk.

O-ARM PEROP CT IMAGING SYSTEM

O-ARM PEROP CT IMAGING SYSTEM

One-arm intraoperative CT is an imaging system that enables performing tomography during the operation. With this system, undesirable situations that require the re-operation the patient Are eliminated by performing tomography postoperatively (undesirable placement of the screw during screewing process, the accumulation of blood in the surgical area during brain surgery, etc.) Small incision, high sensitivity.
