Republican Research and Clinical Center of Neurology and Neurosurgery annually provides specialized in-patient aid to 6000 patients, and specialized out-patient aid to 25000 patients. More than 2000 high-tec neurosurgical interventions are annually carried out for citizens of the Republic of Belarus and foreign citizens.

Diagnosis and surgical treatment of:

— arterial aneurysms of brain;
— arteriovenous malformations and fistulae of brain and spinal cord, arterio-sinus fistulae (incl. carotid-cavernous fistulae);
— cerebral and spinal vascular stenosis;
cerebral (brain), spinal, pituitary tumors
— tumors of cranial and spinal nerves;
— lumbar disc herniations and lumbar spinal stenosis;
— injuries of peripheral nerves and nerve plexuses;
— consequences of traumatic brain injury (posttraumatic skull defects, basal liquorrhea, hydrocephalus);
— normotensive adult hydrocephalus.

Functional and stereotactic neurosurgery:

— extrapyramidal movement disorders (Parkinson’s disease, generalized muscle dystonia, essential tremor etc.);
— surgical treatment of epilepsy, central and peripheral chronic pain syndromes (incl. severe facial pain), severe spastic syndrome.

Methods that are used for treatment:

— neurostimulation of deep cerebral structures (deep brain stimulation – DBS);
— neurostimulation for chronic pain (spinal cord stimulation – SCS);
— Baclofen pump implantation, DREZ-myelotomy, selective rhizotomy;
— stereotaxic biopsy;
— microvascular decompression of cranial nerves.

Endoscopic neurosurgery:

— transsphenoidal endoscopic surgery of pituitary adenomas, craniopharyngiomas and other tumors of chiasmosellar area;
— transcranial endoscopic surgery of skull base tumors;
— transcranial endoscopic microvascular decompression of trigeminal nerve;
— transnasal and transcranial endoscopic closing of cerebrospinal fluid fistula;
— endoscopic surgery of cysts of ventricular system of the brain, endoscopic perforation of fundus of the third ventricle;
— endoscopic surgery of tunnel syndromes of upper extremity.

Endovascular neurosurgery:

— embolization of cerebral and spinal arterial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations;
— embolization of tumor blood vessels (pre-surgical or as the main method of treatment);
— brachiocephalic and intracranial artery stenting in case of dissection and stenosis.

We also carry out microcoil embolization, incl. balloon- and stent-assistance, flow-diverting stents, nonadhesive embolic agents and adhesives, combination of transarterial and transvenous approaches.

Pediatric neurosurgery:

— diagnosis and surgical treatment of cerebral and spinal tumors (incl. tumors of brain stem), vascular diseases of central nervous system, cerebral and spinal congenital defects;
— reconstructive operations in craniostenosis, hydrocephalus and its’ sequelae;
— treatment of drug-resistant epilepsia;
— sequelae of traumatic injuries of brain and spinal cord, peripheral nerves and nerve plexuses.
