Back in 1990, when neurosurgeons aren’t as readily available as nowadays in central Taiwan, many patients with neurological diseases had to travel to either northern or southern Taiwan to seek medical supports, which leads to the lost of golden hours for receiving treatment. The superintendent of Tungs’ Hospital realized the urgent needs for a good neurosurgery department in order to care for the patients in central Taiwan; thus, he dedicated his medical career to neurosurgery and learnt from the best medical centers in Taipei. Dr. Tung has been treating patients in deed needs ever since, and Tungs’ hospital has also established its ground as one of the best hospitals for nuerosurgery in central Taiwan. Because of the dedication of Dr. Tung and Tungs’ hospital, we are able to expand the department and recruit excellent neurosurgerons to offer a more complete range of services, and Tungs’ hospital has later become the designated hospital for acute and critical neurological diseases.
The department of neurosurgery specialized in various neurological-related critical cares, such as hemorrhage, brain tumor, cerebral vascular diseases, any spinal diseases, peripheral neurological diseases. Furthermore, there are 20 beds in the neurosurgery Intensive Care Unit to offer enough space for critical care, hence, patients from central area doesn’t need to travel far to seek medical assistance due to insufficient facilities.
Cutting edge devices:
Stereotaxic apparatus, Intracranial pressure monitor, endoscope, surgical microscope, The probe for facet joint syndrome, spinal lasic surgery, brain-specific anethesia machine.
Head trauma, Subarachnoid hemorrhage, brain tumor, intracranial hemorrhage, cerebral vascular disease, hyperpidrosis, Trigeminal and sciatica, spinal thron, body odor, various spinal diseases, peripheral neurological disease, Pediatric Hydrocephalus, genetic neuro system disorder, lumbar lasic surgery, Spinal vertebral bone cage, spinal micro surgery, and high frequency thermo therapy.
Science and knowledge:
High frequency thermo therapy
Spine is a crucial structure to support human body, as well as to enable mobility. Facet joint is a crucial joint connector between spines, thus, the pain sensation caused by facet joint can not be treated with regular treatment for back or neck pain. The common symptom of Facet joint syndrome is the pain sensation that occurred around the spinal cord, sometimes it expands to shoulder and rear thigh areas, the pain sensation might be deepen if patients straighten their body or try to bend backward. Normally the condition of pressure over nerves won’t be detected during examination, however, patients feel the dull pain sensation. The principle of “high frequency thermo therapy” is to use specialized probe to penetrate the facet joint guided by the X-ray, and treat the facet joint with thermo heat at around 80 degree to achieve the desired result. The thermo therapy offers an effective treatment for back and neck pain and only requires local anesthesia; furthermore, no hospitalization required, with nearly no side effect and risk.. Thus, this offers patients who suffer from chronic pain an effective solution.
