Professor Peter Vajkoczy: Complex brain and spinal surgery performed to world-class standards at the Charité in Berlin

The Department of Neurosurgery at the Charité University Medical Centre in Berlin offers internationally renowned expertise in neuro-oncology, vascular neurosurgery and spinal neurosurgery.

Depending on where a brain tumour is located, treating it in a minimally invasive way and without complications can represent a huge medical challenge. Brain tumours situated in areas involved in motor functions or language are often classified as inoperable, leading to a poorer prognosis for the patients. In recent years, the Charité University Medical Centre has established numerous methods for diagnosis and treatment that allow intraoperative monitoring and enable the tumour to be localised to within the nearest millimetre and removed with precision. These methods require every member of the team to have a high level of technical expertise and experience. This applies not only to the neurosurgeons but also to the neurophysiologists, neuropsychologists, speech and language therapists and specialist neuroanaesthetists. Intraoperative monitoring involves continuous stimulation of sensitive and motor nerve paths, monitoring of the functioning of tiny cranial nerves, intraoperative monitoring of numerous language functions and monitoring of the tumour walls and supply of blood to the tumour. Language functioning is, of course, continuously tested both in German and in international patients. With such methods, it is now possible to remove around 90 per cent of these critical tumours without postoperative complications. This puts patients in a better position for further therapies and improves their overall prognosis.

Another field of our expertise is the use of vascular neurosurgery to treat complex vascular deformities (aneurysms and angiomas) and to prevent strokes caused by blood vessels closing up in the brain. A central element of this is bypass surgery. Patients from across Germany and all over the world come specifically to Berlin to have these operations carried out. In cases of complex aneurysms, which threaten to rupture a vascular wall and cause a brain haemorrhage, treatment is often required in order to close the blood vessels, performing a bypass beforehand to safeguard the supply of blood to the brain. This operation, which uses the latest minimally invasive andm laser-assisted procedures, allows us to treat patients with a low rate of complications.

Another reason for performing bypass surgery is to prevent strokes where patients are suffering from chronic closure of blood vessels in the brain. A minimally invasive bypass can significantly reduce the risk of a stroke in this situation. We also use ultramodern techniques here to identify those patients who require a bypass and then to carry out the operation rapidly and with minimum strain on the body.

In recent years, we have established stateof-the-art spinal neurosurgery methods that make it possible for minimally invasive keyhole surgery to be carried out on the spine and for the spineʼs movement to be retained. These operations are commonly used to treat narrowing of the spinal canal and instability of the spine. Patients with these conditions suffer from chronic back and leg pain, which worsens depending on the strain placed on them.

Such patients can now be treated with much less aggressive operations using the latest tube-assisted endoscopic and microsurgical procedures and without requiring major surgery on the spine or causing stiffness of the vertebrae. As a result, patients can enjoy a new quality of life, improved mobility and a reduced amount of time spent in hospital. We have also specialised in therapy for spinal disc changes that aim to retain movement in the spine. State-of-theart disc prostheses now enable operations in which spinal discs are replaced in a way that retains the natural movement of the spine after surgery and protects the other, healthy sections of the spine. This innovative procedure has helped numerous patients suffering from acute or chronic complaints in the cervical spine and lumbar spine.

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.

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.
