Neurosurgery deals specifically with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and injuries of the entire nervous system. The neurosurgeon works closely with the neurologist.

His area of expertise encompasses operations such as the removal of brain or spinal cord tumours, and the treatment of brain haemorrhages as well as slipped discs. He is also responsible for surgery on the nerves of the face, hands and legs.

He makes use of special surgical techniques for operating on the nervous system. It is important, especially during operations on brain tumours, not to damage the surrounding healthy tissue. That is why neurosurgery uses very modern, computer-aided navigation systems that allow a high degree of precision.

The CyberKnife system introduces new ways of treating benign and certain malignant brain tumours and deformities of the brain's blood vessels without having to open the skull.
