Endoscope

With the endoscope we can use a special fiber optic microcamera to see inside the tissues and direct special tools for biopsies and to investigate anatomical abnormalities, opening new drainage channels of the cerebrospinal fluid (eg 3rd ventriculostomy), opening of brain cysts , removal of pituitary tumours, removal of cerebral hematomas, and even the surgical treatment of aneurysms. Special training of neurosurgeons is required as far as the techniques of the endoscope are concerned. The more the progress and development of the equipment, the more neurosurgical diseases are treated with endoscopic methods, in combination with other techniques, such as neuronavigation.

Neuronavigation

Imagine a coordinate system similar to that of Earth, where every point on the patient’s skull and brain or spine is mapped.

Using modern computers, we direct with special precision the special tools in the affected area and perform operations such as biopsies or removal of tumors or placement of spinal fusion materials, without causing significant tissue injury. Neuronavigation has made it possible to remove brain tumors that were previously considered “unoperative”. Almost no damage or tumor is “impossible to remove”, thanks to the help of Neuronavigation. These surgeries are short and have almost zero risk of complications.

Thus, patients recover faster. With this technique we can also make targeted therapeutic interventions, administration of local pharmaceutical agents (chemotherapy, etc.) to ensure the maximum possible therapeutic effect.
