DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 quality certificate

ISO is an obligatory certification for all hospitals in the Asklepios Network. The independent commission regularly controls the hospitals' activity to check whether diagnostic and treatment procedures comply with international standards. The commission controls the quality of equipment, drugs, and internal coordination.

Neurosurgery Department

Doctors of the Department specialize in diagnostics and surgical treatment of the central and peripheral nervous system.

Neurosurgeons at Asklepios Nord treat such diseases as:

  • benign and malignant brain tumors
  • benign and malignant neoplasms in the spine or spinal cord
  • vessel diseases — aneurysms, angiomas, cavernomas
  • circulation disturbance of the liquid in the brain (hydrocephalus)
  • narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis)
  • herniated discs.

Doctors apply minimally invasive, microsurgical and endoscopic options for surgery.

Minimally invasive interventions are performed through small openings from 0.5 to 6 cm in size (depending on the operated area). As a result, the tissues are minimally damaged, and a patient recovers faster than after open surgery.

Microsurgical operations are carried out under control of special microscopes — there are 2 devices at Asklepios Nord. Due to the multiple zooming of the affected zone, doctors operate precisely and do not damage neighboring healthy tissues.

Endoscopic intervention is an operation using an optical device (an endoscope) which transmits a highly precise image to the monitor. Endoscopic operations on the brain are performed through the nose and mouth, without openings in the skull.

Computed navigation and intraoperative MRI

To increase the success of the neurosurgical interventions, doctors use:

  • system of the computed navigation which allows operation with up 1 mm accuracy
  • intraoperative MRI — a method of visualised control. Doctors see the edge of a tumor on the screen and can remove it completely without affecting healthy tissues. It reduces the risk of tumor relapse.
 

A patient before surgery

Gastroenterology Department at Asklepios Nord

Patients with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas undergo treatment in the department. Doctors specialize in the treatment of inflammatory diseases of the intestine — Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Minimally invasive surgery of the GI — operations through punctures up 1-3 cm and natural openings

Doctors perform less traumatic operations using an endoscope or laparoscope.

Surgeries on the pelvic are performed laparoscopically — through several pictures up to 3 cm using an optic device. After a laparoscopy, hardly noticeable scars remain, and recovery goes faster than after open operation.

ЗDoctors treat the intestinal diseases applying the endoscopic technique. The procedure is carried out through the anus with a fine needle and small camera. Due to the absence of incisions, a patient gets well faster, and feels better during the postoperative period compared to traditional or laparoscopic operation.

Doctors perform minimally invasive surgeries to treat such diseases:

  • benign and malignant tumors of the colon and rectum
  • chronic inflammatory disease of the intestine
  • rectal prolapse
  • inguinal hernias
  • пgallbladder stones.

Pediatric Department and Children's Surgery

A team of neurosurgeons, pediatricians, neonatologists, pediatric surgeons, neuroradiologists, orthopedists, and urologists treats little patients.

Pediatric surgery

To treat children, doctors choose safe surgical and anesthetic options to avoid pain and side effects. If possible, doctors conduct sparing surgeries through small incisions up to 1-3 cm in size and natural openings (mouth, nose, anus).

Doctors also treat kids with defects of the abdominal wall, lung diseases, hernias, fistulas.

I really like the doctor's approach, very friendly and made me feel comfortable
I really like the doctor's approach, very friendly and made me feel comfortable. He was willing to hear my questions and explained the whole procedure and post operation requirements. The doctor's personal assistance was also in the call and immediately after she contacted me to ask if there all was ok and if there is anything else I needed to ask.
I liked the fact that after the online consultation I felt more relaxed about the operation to follow in the coming months.
About Bookimed service
I was pleasantly surprised by the people of Bookimed because I had no idea about them and only approached them to check if I could get some information about doctors in Hamburg. They responded immediately, they are always answering to my messages and are regularly communicating with me to check on my progress.
