Neurosurgery

Number of surgical procedures, which are carried out at the Neurosurgery Department of Private Sani Konukoğlu Hospital, is gradually increasing and more people are enjoying our services in the region. Neurosurgery works in collaboration with the Neurology, Neuroradiology, Neuroanesthesia and Psychiatry Departments and the department works in cooperation with electroneurophysiology, CT, multi-slice CT angiography, 1.5 tesla MRI and angiography (DSA) units. Adult and pediatric neurosurgeries are carried out up to safety requirements, thanks to well-equipped intensive care units and neuroanesthesia capabilities.
