Dr. Manfred Kudernatsch
Specialist Centre for Neurosurgery and Epilepsy Surgery
We offer our patients a comprehensive, primarily minimally invasive range of treatments. Upstream of the therapy, if required, there is complete range of diagnostic measures, due to which the procedures can be optimally planned in neurosurgery and epilepsy surgery. A very close cooperation with other departments in Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth makes this possible without delay. Depending on the type of treatment, we organise further treatment or follow-up treatment that is tailor-made for you. Because in our neurosurgery and epilepsy surgery the patient, with their problems, worries and questions, is always at the centre of our activities.
Our clinic for neurosurgery and epilepsy surgery specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of the following diseases:
As one of over 30 centres in Germany, together with the Specialist Centre for Neurosurgery and Epilepsy Surgery, we offer you Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Similarly to a cardiac pacemaker, a small computer, which is known as a stimulator or “brain pacemaker” is implanted under the skin of the stomach or chest. Also under the skin, electrodes go out of this stimulator along thin wires to the brain and, through a neurosurgically inserted borehole, through the scullcap into the brain, to the place - down to the millimetre - that is responsible for the movement disorder. Then the individually programmed stimulator triggers tiny electric pulses. In this way, we help you to reduce the main complaints of physical inactivity, tremors and increased muscle tone. It is to be expected that there will be a reduction in the amount of medication you require.
