Professor Dag Moskopp: Neurosurgery – for disorders of the nervous system

The Centre for Base of Skull and Spinal Surgery at the Vivantes Hospital in Friedrichshain, Berlin, which is headed up by Professor Dag Moskopp, offers a broad range of neurosurgical diagnostics and therapies. Neurosurgery is a relatively new discipline that involves close collaboration with other fields of medicine as many physical disorders are also manifested in the central nervous system.

Neurosurgeons treat patients with complaints such as visual, hearing and circulatory problems, head and spinal injuries, hormonal disorders and unexpected weight gain. Before providing treatment, the highly competent team in Professor Dag Moskoppʼs neurosurgical department evaluates the results of diagnostic tests such as X-rays, CTs and MRIs, neurological evidence and findings from opticians and decide on the appropriate therapy based on the individual patientʼs diagnosis.

The wide range of conditions means treatment is carried out jointly with the vascular surgery unit or the various tumour centres and radiology department. Slipped discs, which can occur in any section of the spine, often require neurosurgical treatment as well.

Before an operation is considered, neurosurgical specialists check whether less invasive therapies would be appropriate, such as neuroradiology using special catheters. If neurosurgery is required, highly specialised techniques are used on the central nervous system and surrounding organs.

At the Department of Neurosurgery at the Vivantes Hospital in Friedrichshain, over 95 per cent of operations employ the latest technologies, such as a highly advanced surgical microscope with which surgeons can use targeted, minimally invasive methods. Special lighting and close-up images allow diseased structures to be removed while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue. Bypasses can be sewn using threads that are finer than a human hair.

Professor Dag Moskopp is Director of the Department of Neurosurgery at Vivantes and heads up the Centre for Base of Skull and Spinal Surgery. Each year, around 1,200 operations are performed under his stewardship – of which 800 are on the spine. A slipped disc can be very painful and is very common in Germany. Unhealthy lifestyles may lead to this condition, which is treated either conservatively with special physiotherapy and pain therapy or by an operation followed by physiotherapy. The actual operation often uses minimally invasive techniques, i.e. keyhole surgery, which require only a short stay in hospital of just a few days.

The departmentʼs areas of focus also include emergency care, such as treatment of traumatic brain injuries following an accident, the sudden onset of symptoms such as cramp, visual or hearing problems or disturbance of consciousness, for example caused by an increased accumulation of fluid or a lack of drainage, known as hydrocephalus or water in the brain.

Professor Moskopp has also offered dedicated hypophysis consultations for the past 20 or so years. “During these consultations, I see couples who want to speed up the process of becoming pregnant,” says Professor Moskopp. The hypophysis – the pituitary gland – is responsible for the release of hormones in the head. Microsurgery on this important gland is also used to remove tumours that can lead to excessive production of hormones and then, for example, visual problems.

Special interdisciplinary and neuropaediatric therapy is provided for children. This is because children are not simply smaller versions of adults, and treatment requires a particularly sensitive approach that takes account of the metabolism of children.

What travellers from around the world are saying

Blutenfest des Rotes Moselweinbergpfirsich


We hebben éven moeten oefenen, maar na een tijdje rolde Rote Moselweinbergpfirsich vanzelf uit onze mond. Toch kan je in Cochem ook gewoon Rud Peesche zeggen, het plaatselijke dialect voor deze kleine perzik met haar robijnrode vruchtvlees die overal in de Moezelvallei groeit. Terwijl de wijngaarden er nog kaal bijliggen, zijn de roze bloemen van de Moezel-Wijnbergperzik al een fleurige voorbode van de lente. Goed nieuws voor de plaatselijke wijnboeren dus, maar ook voor al wie dol is op perziken, want dan wordt er in Cochem smakelijk gefeest.

Voor de ene is het een stukje Frankrijk in Duitsland, voor de andere is het een stukje Duitsland dat ook in Frankrijk niet zou misstaan. Wij houden het bij typisch Duits met een stevige Franse twist: Saarland. De kleinste Duitse deelstaat ging een paar keer over en weer tussen beide landen, was tweemaal op zichzelf en werd in 1957 definitief bij Duitsland ingelijfd. Het resultaat is een grensoverschrijdende kruisbestuiving van savoir-vivre en savoir-faire die zich vooral in de lokale gastronomie laat gelden. Wij trokken in Saarland letterlijk van de ene rijk gedekte tafel naar de andere, gingen er tafeltoeren en lieten ons galant overtuigen van het feit dat je van 'een schone tafel' wél kan eten.

Crazy SB Waschsalon

Crazy SB Waschsalon

Quando estamos viajando, nada como ter uma lavanderia perto para as horas de aperto. Não tem como não notar essa lavanderia toda "modernosa". Crazy SB Waschsalon chama a atenção por suas centenas de meias penduradas. Uma decoração perfeita para o ambiente. Eu não cheguei a lavar nenhuma roupa na minha estádia em Dresden, mas se ficasse mais uns dias, teria voltado lá de certeza. Fica na Louisenstraße 6, aberto todos os dias das 06h - 23h.

Travel Bookshop - para os apaixonados por viagem

As coisas mais legais, sem dúvidas eu encontrei em Neustadt. É a região mais alternativa e legal de Dresden. Foi lá que eu vi uma das Lojas de Livros de Viagem mais legais. É aquela loja/livraria/papelaria que você vai querer comprar tudo. Passei uma boa hora lá dentro, folheando (porque ler em alemão, nem em sonho!) todos os guias, livros. Comprei uns postais lindos. Bobeei por não ter comprado uns mapas antigos, eram lindos.

Para ter uma vista incrível de Dresden, vale muito a pena pegar o monorail em Loschwitz. Além de ver a cidade, você ainda terá uma vista privilegiada da Ponte Azul - Blaueswunder.

1000 e 1 passagem

Em Neustadt tem a Kunsthofphpassage, que é uma passagem incrível. Ela tem vários prédios "temáticos". O azul por exemplo quando chove, a água nos canos vira música. Fora os prédios, ainda tem várias lojas bacanas e cafés charmosos para você aproveitar. #youngDresden #mustsees #shopping #cafés

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.
