The department of neurosurgery provides the treatment of conditions affecting the central nervous system, peripheral nerves, and the spine, for all patients of the South-Bohemia Region. Along with the treatment of intracranial tumour expansions, the department also treats spontaneous and injury-related bleeding to prevent further damage to the central nervous system.
The department provides comprehensive surgical treatment of degenerative disorders affecting the whole spine (vertebral column) including its injuries.
Strokes are prevented by a vascular program, part of which are surgical procedures carried out on vessels supplying the brain, and also the connecting vessels that improve the perfusion of the brain.
The department has a total of 5 ICU beds with comprehensive monitoring of vital functions, and 21 standard beds. Surgical treatment is undertaken in two operating theatres. The theatres are equipped with neuro-navigation for the brain and spine, making it possible to obtain targeted and exact orientation in the brain as well as in the bony structures of the vertebral column. The procedures are carried out with the help of two surgical microscopes. The safety of the procedures carried out in the central nervous system is further enhanced by the use of a special instrument for neurological function monitoring.
Surgical procedures in the ventricular system of the brain are carried out using a neuroendoscope.
