Neurosurgery deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all conditions of neurosurgical interest (oncological, vascular, malformative and traumatic).
In particular, Ospedale San Raffaele is a national and international reference center for the treatment of pituitary and skull base tumors, vascular and spinal pathologies, as well as pathologies of the pediatric age.
Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi is one of the international reference centers for the treatment of brain lesions with brain mapping techniques and the first center in Italy for DBS-Deep Brain Stimulation. It also deals with the surgical treatment of brain lesions associated with epilepsy and drug-resistant epilepsy.
To offer optimal treatment, patients are followed by a multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons, endocrinologists, neuroradiologists, neurophthalmologists, neurologists, neuropsychologists, otolaryngologists and radiotherapists.

The most modern surgical treatments are available for all diseases, including minimally invasive brain and spinal surgery, two-dimensional and three-dimensional endoscopy and precision radiosurgery with Gamma Knife. GSD surgical teams also make use of such technologies as intraoperative ultrasound and intraoperative cortical mapping and represent one of the world's leading groups in the use of these methods in the resection of tumors and lesions associated with epilepsy.
