The department provides surgical treatment of the brain, spinal cord, and spinal column for patients from the Hradec Králové Region as well as other regions. Outpatient service is ensured by three outpatient offices divided into emergency, common, and specialized neurosurgery. On average, about 7,500 outpatients are treated here every year. The neurosurgery bed ward has 77 beds comprising four standard bed wards and one intensive care unit.
The operations are performed in three operation theatres equipped with state-of-the-art technologies. On average, nearly 2,000 neurosurgical operations are performed here every year. Important aids in the operating room include two computer-assisted navigation units which, if connected to operation microscopes and post-operative ultrasound, provide the neurosurgeon exact orientation at the site of the operation and significantly increase the radicality and safety of neurosurgical interventions. At present the usage of computer-aided navigation is being widened also to more complex instrumented spinal surgeries. The department is also introducing mini-invasive neurosurgical techniques which will result in more gentle and better targeted treatment for the patient. Using endoscopic methods decreases operation load on a patient. The department ranks among the absolute best ones in our republic in the field of spinal column mini-invasive surgery and surgery of brain tumors. The doctors at our department are hosted in leading neurosurgical workplaces in Western Europe to perform demonstration surgeries.
