Professor Hans Steiner: Operations in the seat of consciousness: how modern neurosurgery deals with the brain and spinal cord.

As a specialist medical field, neurosurgery has benefited more than most from advances in microsurgical and minimally invasive techniques, state-of-the-art imaging and computer and navigation technologies. Professor Steiner, Senior Consultant at the Neurosurgery Department at Nuremberg Hospital South, is able to utilise the latest medical equipment for neurosurgery.

In a long-established tradition of development, the Neurosurgery Department at Nuremberg Hospital continually improves its already successful treatment methods by integrating new technical standards as well as diagnostics systems, digital navigation systems and surgical procedures, all of which offer increasing levels of precision.

The treatment of tumours of the brain, spinal cord and nerves is one of the main clinical fields at the Nuremberg site. The risks of paralysis and other complications in patients who need to have tumours removed are getting lower all the time.

By deploying the latest techniques, including microsurgery, computer-assisted intraoperative neuronavigation and laser and ultrasound methods, it has become possible to perform operations even in critical functional areas of the brain, such as the centres for motor control. The neurosurgeon first has to see the exact proportions of the tumour, which he does with the aid of intraoperative diagnostics that, during the operation, provide him with precise images and even a 3D image for better visualisation.

Brain waves are measured at the same time, meaning any major disturbances are detected immediately. The better the surgeon is able to see the size and proportions of the tumour, the faster, more gently and more precisely he can remove it entirely and without any damage to neighbouring areas of the brain – that is the aim of a neurosurgical procedure.

Nowadays, it makes sense to treat brain tumours by drawing on interdisciplinary expertise for the different therapy options and radiation techniques. The neuro-oncological centre, one of the largest in southern Germany, is a certified centre of expertise comprising neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-oncologists, radiotherapists, neuroradiologists and neuropathologists. If surgical removal of the tumour is no longer deemed possible, stereotactic procedures can be a option. This involves creating a 3D image of the tumour and then treating it using a different method, such as radiotherapy

Another specialist area of neurosurgery at Nuremberg is the treatment of neurovascular diseases, i.d. vascular deformities such as aneurysms, angiomas, cavernomas and arteriovenous fistula within the meninges and the cerebral cortex. Therapy for cerebral vascular disorders is no longer an exclusively surgical domain, but instead takes place in close interdisciplinary cooperation with related departments, including neuroradiology and radiotherapy. To stabilise the blood vessels, stents are inserted in an interventional procedure using endovascular catheters.

Spinal conditions make up a high proportion of neurosurgical cases. These include deteriorative disorders such as a slipped disc and abnormal narrowings of the spinal canal as well as tumours and inflammations of the spine, spinal canal and spinal cord. Other advances in neurosurgery encompass functional methods that can be used in pain therapies or in the treatment of severe tremors in Parkinson’s sufferers. This greatly improves the patients’ quality of life.

In spite of all the state-of-the-art medical technology available, treatment should always focus on the person. Without respect and empathy for the patients, who often come from other cultures, attempts at treatment have little prospect of success.

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.

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.
