The Brussels Neurosurgical Center (Centre neurochirurgical de Bruxelles) was established by Dr L. Ectors and J. Aschlogh in 1965 as one of the first neurosurgical departments in Brussels. High quality medicine and personalized care to the patient have allowed us to become one of the leading private neurosurgical departments in Belgium.

Neurosurgery is a medical specialty dealing with diseases or traumas to the brain, the meninges, the spinal cord, the spine or the peripheral nerves.

Thanks to a permanent collaboration between neurologists and neurosurgeons, we offer a combined medical and surgical approach while state of the art technical equipment allows us to treat the entire panel of neurological and neurosurgical diseases since almost 40 years.

The constant evolution of spinal surgery enables us to offer to our patients, when surgery is needed, efficient treatments for cervical or lumbar disc herniations, spine arthritis, deformities and tumors. We perform most types of spinal surgical procedures from microsurgical approaches to complex spinal fusion.

To treat brain tumors, we use operative microscope, ultasonic aspirator, neuronavigation and stereotaxy (computer assisted surgery). This allows millimetre precision, minimally invasive surgery, and increased chances of success.

We are also able to treat such diverse conditions as hydrocephalus, spinal and cerebral trauma, peripheral nerve diseases (in collaboration with the Hand surgery Department) or even chronic pain. The Pain Clinic and the departement of neurosurgery also deal with the assessment and treatment of patients eligible for Surgical Treatment of Pain by neurosimulation).

Patients presenting with malignant brain or spine tumours are operated by our neurosurgeons, then referred if needed o the department of radiotherapy of the Clinique E. Cavell or to the Gamma Knife at the Hopital Universitaire Erasme, while still being followed up by their surgeon. The Brussels neurosurgery center collaborates with the department of neurosurgery of the Hopital Erasme since 2001.
