Special emphasis is placed on scientific research including projects on intracranial aneurysms, epilepsy and neuromonitoring, as well as spinal column surgery.
The Neurosurgery Division collaborates closely with other divisions of the hospital.
The spinal column is composed of vertebrae and discs. Discs are pads located between each vertebra that allow for movement by absorbing shocks. A herniated disc occurs when part of an intervertebral disc has slipped into the spinal canal, which contains the spinal cord and nerve roots. This pathology occurs most often in the lower lumbar vertebrae, which are located in the lower back, sometimes from exertion or even minor trauma.This may result in compression and inflammation of the lumbar nerves.
AC10 – surgical activities in ten years: this is HUG’s vast project to respond to the 1% annual increase in the population’s needs. The project’s first milestone: the opening in 2017 of six new operating theatres, including two equipped with a robot, in the Gustave Julliard building.
Other steps are planned with:
