High-performance medicine in the service of patients

The Department of Neurosurgery is one of the largest and most modern neurosurgical institutions in Austria and can now look back on a very successful 50-year history. More than 60 beds are available for patients who receive comprehensive care from our dedicated, highly specialized team. Approximately 2.500 procedures are performed annually in the four operating rooms and about 10,000 treatments in our Special Outpatient Clinics. We are the only clinic in Austria that combines a Gamma Knife, an endovascular operating room, an operating room for intraoperative MRI diagnostics, one for stereotactic procedures and a neurointensive care unit in one building.

Our main areas of expertise are tumor surgery, vascular neurosurgery, pediatric neurosurgery, epilepsy surgery and functional neurosurgery. Neurotraumatology, interventions on the spine or peripheral nerve surgery are performed according to strict international standards. 

As a university hospital, research and teaching are also an integral part of our service concept and closely linked to clinical work.
We offer high-performance medicine, excellent interdisciplinary patient care, medical research and academic teaching in the service of our patients.
