Neurosurgery is a surgical specialty dedicated to the treatment of diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, covering the brain, muscles, and nerves, as well as the spinal cord and vertebral column.
Surgeons who work at Lusíadas Saúde Neurosurgery Units possess extensive experience in evaluating and guiding patients in the most varied clinical situations and are capable of performing surgeries which require the highest levels of precision and safety.
Equipped with the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment instruments, Neurosurgery Units are characterized by clinical excellence and a focus on continual improvement of surgical techniques, making the most advanced treatment options available. Even though the primary approach at Neurosurgery Units is a surgical one, Lusíadas Saúde teams also engage in a multidisciplinary approach which ensures that the most appropriate treatment path for each case be indicated.
