Functional neurosurgery

From Facial neuralgia to Parkinson's Disease

Epilepsy that can not be controlled with drug therapy, various incurable pains, for example: facial neuralgia ( trigeminal neuralgia), cancer- associated intense pain, post spinal surgery or stroke pain, complex regional pain syndrome (CRFS), shingles residue, known as post-herpetic neuralgia, as well as migraine and tension type headaches. Movement disorders, for example: spastic muscle contractions occurring around the face and neck area (dystonia) tremor associated with Parkinson's Disease and multiple sclerosis or stiffness (e.g. essential tremor spasticity).
In some rare cases, it can occur that neither the medication nor any other conventional therapy is able to help those, who are in constant pain, live with frequent seizure-inducing epilepsy, or are struggling with limb spasms and tremors, and are incapable of a normal life because of movement disorder. Except, the normally negligible statistic rate, in respect of their own lives, means 100% threat and vulnerability for those struggling with these diseases.
Our Institute’s Functional neurosurgery is able to offer help in even these seemingly hopeless cases. Our specialists can choose from many modern interventions to offer the patient personalised modern therapy, which will most likely terminate persistent excruciating pain, movement disorder or any other serious neurological complaints. Our Functional Neurosurgery Program provide such invaluable achievements in modern medicine for patients turning to us, that are capable of providing good quality of lives for those that were previously thought incurable, even without causing irreversible processes. Nowadays, there is no need for traditional (ablative)neurosurgical surgery to mitigate complaints. In many cases effective treatment can be achieved by implanting a small device (medicine pump, nerve stimulator or electrode). In addition, the function of the implanted device, i.e. the dosing of the medicine or the electric pulse can be modified externally at any time without further surgical intervention.
The fact that, with regards to neuromodulation interventions, our Institute is one of Europe’s leading centres: the second largest Functional Surgery Center on the continent, is hardly known even among professionals. The state of the art surgeries performed here have already helped hundreds of patients: in the vast majority of cases that were otherwise unmanageable, the problems passed, the pain occurred much less or not at all and the quality of life destroying attacks and seizures stopped.
We maintain close contact with our Functional Surgery patients post hospital interventions. We welcome our patients back for multiple mandatory post operative follow-up examinations. For those who benefit from neurostimulation medical treatment, there are nursing centres, who are in close contact with our Institute, to help with the devices management and maintenance.
