Neurosurgery | Technology | Treatment | Consultations
Neurosurgery is a highly specialised medical discipline that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system.
WHICH CONDITIONS ARE DIAGNOSED AND TREATED?
Our specialist Dr Alessandro Rustia helps patients with a wide range of conditions, including brain tumours, vascular anomalies, traumatic brain injury, spinal disorders and many other neurological conditions. We provide interventional pain medicine, including facet joint injections between the vertebrae in the spine, intra- and periarticular therapy, radiofrequency therapy, ISG and neurostimulation (SCS, DRG, PNS).
What makes neurosurgery particularly significant is its ability to address these challenges with the utmost precision and state-of-the-art technology.
In our neurosurgical practice, we use the latest generation of instruments and technologies to ensure a minimally invasive approach and to minimise risks for our patients.
KEY ELEMENT: THE ULTRASONIC BONE CUTTER
A key element of our minimally invasive techniques is our use of an ultrasonic bone cutter. This innovative technology enables us to precisely remove bone particles that press on and damage the sensitive nerve structures in the spine. This approach significantly minimises risk and helps to maximise the success of the procedures, leading to faster recovery.
HIGHEST STANDARD IN NEUROSURGICAL CARE
In our medical practice, we recognise the critical importance of these advanced tools and technologies and are committed to providing our patients with the highest standard of neurosurgical care to ensure safe and effective treatment for a wide range of neurological conditions.
We use a wide range of advanced technologies, including:
In this procedure, we use computer-assisted imaging to create precise 3D maps of the brain or spine. This enables us to determine the exact position of tumours or other anomalies during surgery.
In this procedure, we monitor the electrical activity of the nervous system during surgery to ensure that there is no damage to important nerve structures.
These instruments enable us to remove tissue precisely without damaging the surrounding tissue.
INTRAOPERATIVE 3D IMAGING
We use state-of-the-art imaging techniques to create 3D images of the affected area during surgery. This helps us to make more precisely informed decisions during the procedure.
This technology enables us to superimpose virtual information onto the surgeon’s field of vision to improve navigation and planning during the procedure.
BENEFITS FOR PATIENTS
These advanced technologies make our neurosurgical procedures safer and more effective.
Our infrastructure enables the following:
- More precise diagnoses
- Gentler treatments
- Faster recovery
Dr Alessandro Rustia has many years of experience and is highly skilled in spinal surgery and pain management. We ensure rapid, expert assessment and consultation as well as treatment encompassing the latest medical possibilities. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like a second opinion.
Because the Pyramid Clinic is a private clinic, patients here require supplementary insurance. You will therefore need private or semi-private insurance for your treatment. If you have general insurance, you can also be treated here if you opt to pay for an upgrade.
