The Neurosurgery Department is involved in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of brain and spinal cord disorders.
Even with the highly advanced medical science of today, it is difficult to treat cerebral nervous disorders, and many cases have been reported with sequela.
In the worst cases, brain and spinal cord disorders might result in death.
Gangnam Severance Hospital established the Spine Specialty Hospital and Cerebrovascular Disease Center to make systematic medical care feasible, thereby providing good and specialized medical practice.
The Neurology Department consists of the brain neurosurgery and spinal neurosurgery units.
The brain neurosurgery unit is involved in stroke, cerebral aneurysm, brain tumor, skull base disorder, endovascular surgery, brain damage, etc.
The outcomes of microvascular and endovascular surgeries for cerebral aneurysm and cerebral arteriovenous malformation at this hospital have been rated as the best in the country, and our brain tumor surgeries have also reported very good outcomes, leading to an increased number of transfers from other hospitals.
The spinal neurosurgery unit is involved in lumbar disc, cervical disc, spinal tumor, spinal damage, etc.
It has the largest number of spinal neurosurgeons available compared to the neurosurgery department of other hospitals, and conducts more than 1,300 cases of spinal surgery per year.
