Brain tumors //

We have high technology including microscope, use of neuronavigation and neuroendoscope for the resection of brain tumors. We have available tools of neuroimaging such as spectroscopy, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and  tractography for surgical planning.

Low back pain//

What should you know about low back pain?

Low back pain is a very frequent entity and sometimes represents an emergency that requires in-hospital management.


The causes of back pain can be many, from a muscle spasm to a herniated disc. Not all hernias produce pain, nor do they all require surgery. It is necessary to evaluate a specialist in spine surgery to clarify these doubts.
