The Department of Neurosurgery is one of the largest and most up-to-date hospitals in the whole of Austria and can now look back on a very successful 50-year history. There are more than 60 beds available for patients. Around 2,000 surgical procedures are performed every year in four operating theatres and the departmental team performs 10,000 treatments in the associated specialist outpatient clinics.
Over the last few years, there have been enormous advances in neurosurgery. Using state-of-the-art imaging equipment and highly developed navigation as well as specialized endoscopic and microscopic devices, it is now possible to operate in a way that conserves the elementary functions of the brain and spinal cord as much as possible. MedUni Vienna offers the entire spectrum of neurosurgery, for example spinal operations and peripheral neurosurgery are performed in accordance with strict international standards.
