The neurosurgery discipline deals with surgical diseases of central and peripheral nervous systems, including brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves.
Diseases treated at neurosurgery clinic in Istanbul include:
Neuro-navigation system offering advanced visualization and allows the surgeon accesses the target accurately during the surgery.
The benefits of neuro-navigation technology are as below:
Brain tumors are unbounded growing cells in the brain. There are many types and different classifications for brain tumors. One classification is related to behaviour which are malignant tumors and benign tumors. The other classification is location that may occur in the different locations of brain.
The symptoms of a brain tumor differs on the type, size and location of the tumor.
There are common sypmtoms occurring due to the increased intracranial pressure and some of these symptoms are:
There are many diagnostic tests such as:
Treatment way of brain tumors depends on the type and size of the tumor.
Today in general, open surgery (tumor excision), radiotherapy, radio-surgery and chemotherapy methods are used separately or in combination for the treatment of brain tumors.
Generally, surgical removal of the tumor is considered to be the first choice.
If surgery has high risk or high complication probability due to the type or location of the tumor, radiotherapy and follow-up is recommended.
Especially in high-grade glial tumors, radio-surgery (gamaknife) or chemotherapy is advised.
A brain aneurysm is also called cerebral aneurysm and it occurs when the artery which transports blood to the brain is bulged or ballooned.
A brain aneurysm can be ruptured and if it is happened it may cause stroke and requires emergency medical intervention.
However in most cases, a brain aneurysm indicates no symptoms and do not rupture.
An unrupted brain aneurysm usually indicates no symptoms and it is unnoticable. Still when it becomes a large aneurysm it may cause some symptoms such as:
Despite the unrupted brain aneurysm, a ruptured brain aneursym demonstrates many symptoms and it requires emergency medical intervention.
Some of the symptoms of a ruptured aneurysm are:
There are many diagnostic tests such as:
If you have a ruptured aneurysm you need emergency treatment.Today there are two common options to treat this type of brain aneurysm; Surgical Clipping and Endovascular Coiling.
Parkinson's is a kind of nervous system disease which makes trouble to control motor movements. Parkinson’s occurs when dopamine sytem is damaged. Dopamine is a kind of chemical produced by our body and it helps us to control our movements .
There are some common symptoms of Parkinson’s such as tremor, rigidity, balance problems and slowness of movement also the disease may affect sleeping, talking or smelling.

Generally the treatment starts with medications to slow the progression of the disease. But in some cases poor medication response and some side effects may occur.
One of the other important treatment option is Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery. In some cases patient can receive benefit from deep brain stimulation surgery. Due to the medical condition, DBS can be advised.
Deep brain stimulation is a procedure that can reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s such as tremor, rigidity and helps to control movement.
A medical device named brain pacemaker is implemented during the surgery and with this medical techonology patients will have to chance to return to normal daily activites.
After the surgery DBS programming takes about 2-3 weeks and after that period mostly the symptoms will lessen and patients will start to receive improvement.
