I would like to welcome you to our website of the university hospital for Neurosurgery!
My team and I want to invite you to browse through our website providing you with some interesting information, insights and facts about our department.
Our clinic ranks among the largest and most modern in Austria and is able to look back upon a successful 25- year old history. More than 60 beds are available at our clinic and our highly trained, engaged staff provides professional care for our patients around the clock.
In our four operation theaters, 2.000 surgeries are conducted per year and our team carries out around 10.000 treatments in our dedicated clinics.
The Department of Neurosurgery made enormous progresses during the last years.
Using the most modern medical imaging, highly developed navigation as well as advanced and specialized endoscopic and microscopic tools, surgeries on fundamental brain and spinal cord functions are able to be conducted in the most conservative and gentle way.
The complete spectrum of neurosurgical treatments and surgeries are offered at our clinic.
Surgeries on the spinal cord respectively on peripheral nerve surgery for instance, are conducted according to strict international standards. Our key aspects encompass tumor surgery, vascular neurosurgery, pediatric neurosurgery, epileptic surgery and functional neurosurgery.
We are the first and only clinic in Austria to combine a gamma knife procedure room, an endovascular procedure room, a surgery theater for so called awake surgery, a surgery theater for delicate stereotactic procedures as well as a neurosurgical intensive care unit in the same building.
As a result, we are can ensure short routes for our patients, often vital for survival, as well as provide treatments of highest quality.
Our goal is the best possible and optimized care for our patients; this is what we are working for 24 hours a day.
