Professor Martin Scholz: Even rare conditions are given top priority here and are operated on with a high degree of expertise

The Department of Neurosurgery at Duisburg Hospital, part of the Wedau Hospitals group, has many years of proven experience in treating neurosurgical illnesses, including the severest of cases. This wealth of expertise was established by the department's first Senior Consultant, Professor Bettag, and his successor, Professor Werner Hassler. Professor Martin Scholz has been Senior Consultant since October. A respected specialist in microsurgery and endoscopy, he is building on the tradition laid down by his predecessors.

The department is one of Germany's largest neurosurgical departments, serving patients from Duisburg and the surrounding area, other regions of Germany as well as many Arab countries, Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union. The latest operating technologies are used in the department, such as a special mouth-controlled surgical microscope that ensures that both of the surgeon's hands are free to perform the operation at all times.

The three operating theatres, fitted with state-of-the-art equipment, are used for microsurgery and endoscopy. As well as common neurosurgical conditions, the department treats a high number of rare illnesses.

Vascular neurosurgery employs modern videoangiography and micro-Doppler sonography to operate on conditions including spinal fistulas, haemangioblastomas, angiomas, complex aneurysms and EC/IC bypasses.

Paediatric neurosurgeons collaborate closely with the paediatrics department to operate in cases such as calvarial deformities and hydrocephalus – including in children under the age of two – using neuroendoscopic procedures and navigated HD technology. Special attention is paid to ensuring that children in particular are exposed to as little radiation as possible during their treatment by using MRI and ultrasound scans and not CT, i.e. without X-rays. Specific neurosurgical diseases that occur in children are encephalocele, spinal lipoma, neurocytoma and many other rare conditions.

Neuro-oncology – neurosurgery for the treatment of cancer – deploys cutting-edge medical technologies such as neuronavigation, intraoperative ultrasound and 5-ALA, a technique in which a fluorescent material is used to indicate the edges of a tumour in the head so that it can be removed more precisely. Special ultrasound technology shows up blood vessels in the head, helping to prevent cerebral infarctions and bleeding. Working with the haematology & oncology department and the radiotherapy unit, the Department of Neurosurgery prepares an individual treatment plan for each patient that draws on the latest research.

In neurosurgery, disorders affecting the area in or behind the eye socket or in the base of the skull present a particular challenge because it is often difficult to access them surgically. Professor Hassler has become renowned worldwide for his publications on surgery in the eye socket. During operations, standard and endoscopic techniques are used as well as a technique in which the affected area of the head is accessed from the opposite side. Spinal neurosurgery at Duisburg Hospital stands out for its combination of advanced microsurgery and interdisciplinary collaboration.

For example, treatment of a slipped disc in the cervical spine involves drilling a hole into the vertebral body from the side as far as the origin of the nerve so that the trapped nerve root can be released. Highly complex operations such as this are performed by an interdisciplinary team of specialists working in the disciplines of neuroradiology, general surgery, thoracic surgery, vascular surgery and traumatology.

Duisburg Hospital is an academic teaching hospital and forms part of the University of Duisburg-Essen. It is situated amid woodland in the beautiful southern suburbs of Duisburg. Despite its focus on high-tech medicine, Duisburg Hospital gives high priority to patient-oriented care in which all the necessary steps are clearly explained to patients and in which their fears and concerns are discussed.

What travellers from around the world are saying

Blutenfest des Rotes Moselweinbergpfirsich

ROZE LENTE IN COCHEM

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.

Saarbrucken

LANGS DE TAFELS VAN SAAR (LEKKER) LAND

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

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.

Kunsthofpassage

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.
