The neurosurgeon specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and pathological conditions of the central and peripheral nervous system. This includes treating disorders such as craniocerebral injuries of varying severity, intervertebral hernia, CNS diseases, including tumors, and congenital anomalies and defects. At GMS our neurosurgeons have many years of practical experience and are among the best in their field. For best results, certain surgical procedures for treatment of diseases of the central nervous system are performed at partner clinics.
Contact a neurosurgeon if you develop any of the following:
Nausea, vomiting, fainting, disorientation, tinnitus or dizziness following a head injury are all an indication that you should immediately see a neurosurgeon.
Neurosurgeons specialize in the surgical treatment of a wide range of pathologies and traumatic injuries of the brain, spinal column and spinal cord, and other parts of the nervous system:
In any medical situation, the sooner the patient receives adequate medical care, the greater the likelihood of a successful outcome. This is especially true with neurological pathologies. If you or a loved one has any of the above symptoms, contact GMS Hospital online or by phone for a consultation with a neurosurgeon.
At the initial consultation, the doctor asks the patient about their symptoms as well as about any previous injuries or diseases. Then the neurosurgeon performs physical examination of the patient, and, in order to obtain a complete clinical picture, orders a number of laboratory analyses and instrumental exams which may include:
In life-threatening situations, emergency neurosurgery may be have to be performed without the possibility of conducting the above tests.
Neurosurgeons perform the following types of surgical interventions:
All neurosurgical operations are carried out using state-of-the-art equipment, including high-precision surgical optics and advanced microsurgical and endoscopic technologies.
After the neurosurgeon studies the results of the lab tests and examinations, he or she determines whether a surgical procedure is required. If it is not, the patient will be referred to another medical specialist, usually a neuropathologist. If surgery is required, the patient is checked into the hospital for preoperative preparation.
For elective (planned) surgery, the patient checks into the hospital either on the day before or the day of the operation. In emergency situations, the patient is immediately hospitalized, and after minimal preparation the operation is performed. In the postoperative period, the patient follows a rehabilitation program designed by the neurosurgeon which may include bed rest, massage, drug therapy, exercise therapy, and a special dietary regime. If you need medical advice from an experienced neurosurgeon, sign up for an appointment at GMS Hospital now, online or by phone.

Greetings from South Africa,
This is a follow up to our recent stay at GMS where my wife Merle Step had a complete Hip replacement by you recently.
She stood up to the return trip to South Africa very well and is able move around with the aid of a walker without difficulty. I took her to our local General Practitioner on Friday, with all your reports and X-Ray plates. He commented that he was very happy with the excellent procedures that you carried out and felt that she was in excellent professional hands while at GMS. He has referred her to an orthopedic surgeon for a final checkup and stitch removal. Also she is to go to Physo for further manipulation.
From both of us we cannot express our gratitude enough for the professional service, helpful administrative as well as nursing staff that attended to our needs while at GMS. We will always look back and always remember the Russian people for their friendly assistance to two complete strangers from another part of the world. In turn Russia will always be in our hearts and we will be good Ambassadors for your great country and federation.
Please pass on our greetings and thanks to a few that I remember by names, if I have left anyone out I apologies.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you every success in your chosen profession and GMS does get global worldwide recognition as an intuition of repute.
Best of luck
Anthony and Merle Step
I am writing to you, on behalf of my wife Helen and myself, to thank all the staff of GMS clinic for the help and support you gave us during our stay in Moscow.
Since, I am ashamed that admit that I speak no Russian, I hope that you will be willing to translate this for the members of the GMS staff who do not speak English.
My own doctor seems pleased with the progress I am making. I still have a dressing on one of the wounds where the stitches may have been removed prematurely before I left the clinic but the others are fine and healing well.
Being ill and requiring surgery in another country will always be something of an ordeal, but the calm reassuring atmosphere in the GMS clinic did much to make us feel better about the experience. The administrative staff at reception was kind as well as efficient and their efforts on our behalf are something that we will never forget. We would also like to thank the cooks for the excellent food they prepared. We regret that we did not get the opportunity to meet them but we greatly appreciated their efforts and, after almost a week without normal food, I particularly enjoyed being able to choose from their extensive menu. Please forgive me for not always doing justice to the meals served but it has taken some time for my appetite to return to normal. We would also like to thank the room attendants for serving our meals so well and keeping our room so clean and tidy. Just as important for us, when so far from home, was that they always did so with a gracious smile. We looked forward to their visits and would like to thank them for being so remarkably patient when we tried to talk to them. We would also like to thank the several kind nurses who cared for me so diligently. I do not believe that I could not have enjoyed more attentive nursing anywhere else in the world and will never forget you. The several doctors who attended me at various stages also need to be thanked. I am grateful to them all but hope that they will forgive me for singling out Dr Constantin Dimitri for a particular mention. His patience, as he explained to me so well in English both what was happening to my body following the operation, and what he and the rest of the medical team were doing - and why – was particularly appreciated and helpful to me during my recovery.
Many, many thanks to you all.
Many thanks to Dr. Oleg Sergeevich Abramov, who performed a surgery and helped me cure a severe case of odontogenic sinusitis.
Dr. Abramov is extremely competent and polite, a true professional with a rare set of skills. I have already recommended him to a colleague of mine and will recommend again.
I want to thank you all so much for making my stay in hospital so bearable. You are all so professional and dedicated and it was a pleasure to spend time with you all even under those unusual circumstances.
I am now home and being cared for by my family as well as my own doctor so all is as well. Hopefully I will be up and about soon.
Once again, many thanks and suffice to say, I will never forget you and your staff did for me.
Best wishes always.
Our specialists will contact you
