Surgical Excellence

Our expert surgeons are committed to the highest international standards and dedicated to advancing the field of neurosurgery. They use the latest technologies of endoscopic and minimally-invasive brain surgery, so as to minimize their intervention and operate as quickly and precisely as possible. Some surgeries are carried out while patients are fully conscious, so that the surgeon can see and discuss the effects of the procedure and make modifications to achieve the best possible outcome.
