Adult Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery is a surgical speciality that treats diseases affecting the central nervous system, i.e. the brain and the cranial nerves, the spinal cord and its nerve roots along with their bone coverings: the skull and the spinal column.

The Department of Adult Neurosurgery at the Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital treats patients presenting with complaints requiring neurosurgery. However, it specialises in certain fields:

  • Skull base tumor surgery: meningiomas, neurinomas, pituitary adenomas. These lesions are often detected as a result of visual symptoms: the ophthalmological emphasis at the Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital - including an ophthalmological emergencies department - partially explains this specialisation.
  • Surgery on orbital tumours in collaboration with Doctor Galatoire's Department of Eye and Eyelid Surgery.
  • Spinal surgery, particularly for degenerative conditions (i.e. related to osteoarthritis), in collaboration with Doctor Belangé's Department of Internal medicine, or to treat tumours or malformations (achondroplasia, cranio-cervical junction malformation).
  • Surgery for chronic pain, within the Centre for Pain Assessment and Treatment.
  • Surgery for Parkinson's disease in collaboration with the Department of Neurology.

The Department of Neurosurgery also treats all the conditions commonly encountered in neurosurgery:

  • Neurosurgical conditions in the elderly (normal pressure hydrocephalus, chronic subdural haematoma, etc.),
  • Neuro-oncology, in collaboration with partner neuro-oncology departments from other hospitals in the Ile de France (Greater Paris) region,
  • Neurosurgical emergencies in collaboration with partner hospitals.
