Neurosurgery develops methods of diagnostics and surgical treatment of diseases and injuries of the nervous system (neuro-oncology, spinal neurosurgery, pediatric neurosurgery, surgery of the peripheral nervous system, neurotraumatology) and examines various issues of surgical treatment of tumors of the brain and spinal cord, diseases and various abnormalitieis of the peripheral and сentral nervous system.
Thanks to new methods not yet available in our country, neurosurgery of the brain and spine, the treatment of epilepsy and Parkinson's disease, pediatric neurosurgery successfully applied in the clinics of Germany, Israel, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, China and Japan, foreign neurosurgery has come out to a whole new level. Foreign neurosurgeons carry out complex surgical operations on the patient's brain regions, without general anesthesia. Successful results in the foreign treatment of patients in the field of neurosurgery are facilitated by accurate diagnostics, correctly chosen methods of effective treatment, professional performance of surgical operations, high level of postoperative care and rehabilitation.
The use of unique medical equipment, such as a MR-imager, the use of powerful operating microscopes, modern neuronavigation devices and neuroendoscopes, enables effective diagnostic treatment and to avoid possible complications. Using tried and proven methods of treatment, taking into account the individual nature of the course of the disease of each patient, experienced neurosurgeons of Germany, Israel, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, China and Japan, in close collaboration with specialists in related fields of medicine - radiotherapy clinic, neuroradiology successfully treat the most complex diseases of the nervous system, previously considered incurable.
In neurosurgery of the brain, the GammaKnife is used, which allows performing stereotaxic operations without trepanation of the skull to treat various diseases - deep tumors, cysts, neurin. A revolution in medicine was the emergence of a unique system of the CyberKnife that combines two advanced medical directions: accurate robotics and scanning system and image transmission. Now, with the treatment of various brain tumors and the spine, as well as the treatment of metastases, it became possible to carryout radiosurgical treatment with higher accuracy without surgical intervention and prolonged multi-week irradiation. This is especially important for tumors located in the deeper parts of the brain, when access is not possible in the usual way. Therefore, the use of CyberKnife is generally the only possible method of treatment of brain tumors.
Foreign neurosurgery is recognized as the latest technology for the treatment of diseases of the nervous system and is considered to be as safe as possible for patients, as it is mininvasive. Operations using modern digital equipment minimizes pain, blood loss, reduces the risk of complications and shortens the rehabilitation period. Thanks to the minimally invasive nature of the operations carried out in brain neurosurgery and the treatment of vertebral hernia, cases of damage to the nervous tissue are excluded. Unfortunately, recently various brain tumors have become common.
A brain tumor is an unusual proliferation of cells in the brain or in the membranes surrounding the brain. The most common brain tumors in adults are gliomas and meningiomas. Although brain tumors are heterogeneous and have a wide variation in age, on average most of the primary tumors occur at the age of 52-56 years. The medical centers of South Korea (MC Severance, St. Mary's Hospital) have a very strong neurosurgery department and offer treatment for various brain tumor s. In the department of neurosurgery of medical centers, specialized treatment and operations are carried out for diseases such as brain tumors, cerebral vascular disease, brain dysfunction (Parkinson's disease, torticollis, tremor, etc.), strokes and others, in accordance with ultramodern neurosurgical technologies.
In St. Mary's Hospital as a part of Catholic Kwandong University in Incheon, South Korea The brain tumor is treated with various methods using the latest generation of surgical equipment. When treating a tumor more than 3 cm or if it is in an unfavorable position, the tumor is maximally removed by open surgery with minimal impact on surrounding tissues and further functioning of the brain. On a tumor less than 3 cm, radial therapy can also be effective with the help of the Novalis apparatus. In St. Mary's Hospital Professor Han Yongmin is one of the most authoritative specialists in neurosurgery in South Korea, on account of which there are the countless operations on the brain.
Minimally invasive neurosurgery is the latest treatment technology, as safe as possible for the patient. Conducting operations on the spinal column with the help of a microscope helps to minimize the pain sensation of the patient, loss of blood, reduce the risk of complications and the period of rehabilitation of the patient. Minimally invasive neurosurgery excludes accidental damage to nerve tissue, and is now widely used in neurosurgery of the brain and in the treatment of vertebral hernia. In the medical centers of South Korea, the latest methods of minimally invasive spinal surgery include percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy (PECD), percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD), open laser assisted lumbar discectomy (OLD), complete disk replacement (TDR). These methods of therapy can reduce the percentage of postoperative complications to a minimum and significantly reduce the recovery period of the patient after surgery. Technologies developed in Germany and the US are widely used in medical centers in Asia, such as the Wooridul Hospital (Seoul, South Korea). The first specialized center for the treatment of spine cancer in Asia was opened in the Wooridul Hospital with the help of CyberKnife. The Wooridul Hospital offers effective treatment of diseases of the neuromuscular system with the help of modern surgical technologies and provides such kinds of treatment as endoscopic spine surgery, spine laser surgery, implantation of the artificial spinal disc, correction of spinal deformity, etc. Also, one of the strongest clinics in the field of neurosurgery of the spine in South Korea is the specialized Nanoori Hospital (Incheon, South Korea) The clinic provides services for the treatment of common diseases of the spine: cervical and vertebral disc herniation, spinal stenosis, spondylolysis, compression fracture of the vertebrae, etc. Doctors of Nanoori Hospital carry out minimally invasive operations with a minimal recovery period. Also, physiotherapeutic treatment is carried out, patients may be prescribed exercise therapy during the rehabilitation period. Doctors prefer conservative methods of treatment, and surgical methods are used in case of emergency.
The possibilities of neurosurgery clinics in Germany, Israel, South Korea, Singapore, China, Japan, and Thailand allow for the restoration of peripheral nerves: reconstruction of the facial nerve after trauma, brachial plexus, treatment of pain syndromes, etc.
Today, Russian residents can take advantage of neurosurgery abroad and conduct treatment in clinics accredited by JCI (Joint Commission International, USA), where everything is aimed at the successful recovery of the patient.
Leading experts of the best clinics of neurosurgery in Germany, Israel, South Korea, Thailand and Singapore will provide the necessary medical care at an optimal cost. In each case, the cost of neurosurgical treatment is determined individually and depends on the severity of the disease and the necessary medical procedures. In many clinics in Asia the cost of neurosurgery is commensurate with the cost of similar services in the developed countries of Europe. At the same time, the cost of neurosurgical operations in South Korea and Singapore is several times lower than in the US and Germany.
We cooperate with many well-known clinics of neurosurgery in Germany, Israel, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, China and Japan. We are always ready to help you and choose for you the best option for examination and neurosurgical treatment abroad.
