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.

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.

Asisi Panometer

Deesden : 1945

Setenta anos depois do bombardeio de Dresden, na Segunda Guerra Mundial, um panorama de 360 ​​graus que mostra a cidade destruída foi revelado na cidade. O artista Yadegar Asisi criou uma imagem circular de 100 metros de largura e 30 metros de altura que mostra Dresden após os devastadores ataques aéreos dos aliados. Entre 13-15 fevereiro de 1945, apenas alguns meses antes do fim da guerra, os bombardeiros britânicos e norte-americanos destruíram mais de 90 por cento do centro histórico da cidade, matando cerca de 25.000 pessoas. Mais de 3.900 toneladas de bombas de alto poder explosivo e dispositivos incendiários dizimaram marcos importantes do barroco em uma cidade que é considerada "a Florença do Elba". O panorama, Dresden: 1945, fica aberto de 24 de Janeiro à 31 de maio de 2015, no gasômetro Panometer. http://www.asisi.de/en/panoramas/dresden-1945/photo-gallery.html

Christmas Markets in Cologne

Christmas in Germany

Christmas may be over, but 11 months from now the season will be upon us and you should spend 2015 in Germany! Why? The Christmas season is in Germany is like no other. There is no other place in the world where you can experience countless, and famous, Christmas markets that will without a doubt, put you in the holiday spirit. While the markets are open all day, it’s best to visit at night. Many towns across Germany have decorated the streets and market squares with evergreen-lined stalls, twinkling lights and religious (and not so religious) statues to kick off the holiday season as festively as possible. If you are a foreigner in Germany at this time of year, it's difficult to miss home when Germany puts on an excellent show at Christmas time. No matter what German city you are in, you can find families and friends of all ages, walking around shopping for unique and traditional gifts, sipping on mulled wine and indulging in delicious German food. You will hear laughter amongst the Christmas carols that will make you forget about your toes and fingers tingling from the cold temperature at this time of year. It’s truly a traditional delight for all of the senses. No trip to the German Christmas markets is complete without trying a class of glühwein, which is a combinations of red wine, spices and sugar. This traditional drink will keep you cozy and happy. Hungry? No problem! There are many stalls that sell traditional German Christmas Market food and snacks for you to enjoy such as bratwurst, mutzen, schmachtlappen and reibekuchen. In a world where Christmas present shopping consists of the latest technology and thoughtless gift certificates, it’s nice to be able to find traditional hand carved gifts at several stalls. Not to mention, mountains of oranges and nuts, the original gift that St. Nicholas gave to people hundreds of years ago at this time of year. While many countries around the world celebrate Christmas, no other place does it like Germany. So, if you feel that this time of year has been lacking in holiday spirit, take a trip over to this European country and be reminded what Christmas time is all about.

Canadians First Time at a Traditional Co-ed Spa

Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities. I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community. The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub. I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.

Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto

Niki the St.-Phalle at her best

A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.
