Department of Neurosurgery

Department of Neurosurgery



The Department of Neurosurgery is the youngest department in “Astghik” MC. It has launched its activitiessince December, 2015 and is fully equipped with modern devices.

The neurosurgical operating room, which corresponds to global high standard requirements, is equipped with the latest generation devices and tools (neurosurgical microscope, neuroendoscope, X-ray transparent operating table, microinstruments, etc.). Due to the wide possibilities of the diagnostic department (1,5 and 3 Tesla CT Scanner), the diagnosis time is minimized and the therapeutic measures are provided in a very short period of time.

Surgeries in the department are provided for the following pathologies:

  • Spinal and brain injuries,
  • Spinal and brain cord tumors,
  • Spinal degenerative diseases(intervertebral cartilage hernias, spondilosynthesis, spinal canal stenosis, pathological fractures, etc.),
  • Cerebrovascular anomalies.


Operations are performed with widely used and modern methods which are rarely used in Armenia. For example, the intervertebral cartilage hernias are operated by the leading neuro spinal surgeons with famous EasyGo system.  The latter enables to perform hernia surgery without incisions and return the patients to their normal daily routines within 1-2 days.

In case of intracerebral tumors, an intraoperative local chemotherapy is used which is an innovation in Armenia.

The department also has close relations with numerous leading neurosurgeons from the USA, Europe and Russia who are ready to support our department with consultations and philanthropic projects.
