Certain traumas of the skull constitute an extreme emergency such as acute or chronic subdural hematomas, epidural hematomas, intra-parenchymal hematomas, fractures of the skull, as well as all fractures of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. In order to guarantee optimal and immediate treatment, a doctor from the Neurosurgery Division is present 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

If necessary, treatment and monitoring specializing in neuro-rehabilitation may be offered. The ANH (Acute Neuro-Rehabilitation) program (FR) offers the possibility to immediately start neurological rehabilitation in the Neurosurgery Division by taking advantage of the HUG neuro-rehabilitation team’s expertise.

Close collaboration with Emergency services and intensive care allows for the provision of the most advanced treatment to accident victims and polytraumatized patients in the Geneva area. Our division also welcomes patients transferred from neighboring France in cases where rapid treatment must be provided.
