Successful Track Record After 5 Years.
The Skull Base Center Bamberg, founded in 2018 by Prof. Prof. h.c. Dr. Dr. med. Günther Feigl, has been successfully recertified by the German Society for Skull Base Surgery. With this certification, the professional society recognizes the years of successful and close collaboration among the Department of Neurosurgery (Headed by Prof. Prof. h.c. Dr. Dr. med. Günther Feigl), the Department of Ear, Nose, and Throat Medicine (Headed by Dr. Andreas Eckert), the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Outpatient Center (Dr. med. Dr. med. dent. Alexander von Moller), as well as connections to Neuroradiology, Radiation Oncology, Oncology, Neuropathology, Plastic Surgery, and Ophthalmology.
The Skull Base Center primarily treats patients with both benign and malignant tumors at the skull base, as well as those with injuries, developmental disorders, malformations, or inflammations in this area. Affected individuals can seek consultation during the weekly Skull Base Clinic.
Diseases and injuries of the skull base pose a unique surgical challenge due to the special and very confined anatomical conditions and the vessels, cranial nerves, as well as adjacent structures such as the eye, the oral and nasal cavities, and the brain that traverse it. Preoperatively, patient cases are discussed interdisciplinary to establish a common treatment concept, followed by a (collaborative) surgery and interdisciplinary postoperative care.
The interdisciplinary facility, in addition to modern comprehensive diagnostics, offers guideline-compliant, individual, and patient-oriented therapy, as well as optimal surgical care.
Tumor resections are performed minimally invasive and microsurgically using state-of-the-art technical equipment such as endoscopes, microscopes, neuromonitoring, navigation, and fluorescence-guided resection procedures.
