 Neurosurgery department

   Neurosurgery department of our hospital was set up in 1965. We were awarded Department of health system key specialty in 1998 and municipal key discipline in 2005. the first director of department, professor Zhang Zhengwei, is Chinese famous pioneer of neurosurgery department. Under his guidance, we have become a comprehensive department with a galaxy of talents and medical equipment, and combining clinical treatment, teaching and scientific research. In 1984, we introduced special operating microscope in Department of neurosurgery in Northwest China. Combined with microsurgical techniques and microsurgical instruments, we finished the operation of nervous system under a microscope, which greatly improved the surgical accuracy and total resection rate of tumor as well as reduced surgical impairment. From that time, we entered the era of micro neurosurgery department. We are strong in clinical, teaching and scientific research. For forty years, we have received more than 30000 hospitalized patients, trained more than 100 basic neurosurgeons, which made a great contribution to the popularization and development of the region in the neurosurgery department.

We have 4 chief physicians, 5 vice chief physicians, 4 attending physicians, 4 resident physicians, 1 associate chief nurse, 4 nurses-in-charge and 12 nurses. We have 48 beds, including 8 ICU beds. We are equipped with German Leica MS-2 operating microscope and intraoperative video recording system, automatic craniotomy equipment, German snake bipolar coagulation, the British semiconductor laser knife, high-precision stereotactic instrument, intracranial pressure monitor and low temperature treatment instrument, etc.
    For more than 40 years, we finished more than 20000 operations, accumulated lots of clinical experience especially in the treatment of severe craniocerebral injury, which effectively reduce the death rate of severe traumatic brain injury (At present, the mortality rate of severe craniocerebral injury is 40%, while our department is 20%). The number of cases of craniocerebral injury ranks the first in the whole province. We are unique in surgical treatment of intracranial tumors, intraspinal tumors and hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage. The surgical treatment of glioma, meningioma and pituitary adenoma has reached the first-class level in china. In recent years, minimally invasive interventional treatment of cerebral vascular disease and microvascular decompression of trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm have achieved remarkable curative effect.
