About Me
Professor Roessler became head of the Department of Neurosurgery at the Medical University of Wien in the Vienna General Hospital in 2019. The department consists of a 8-floor Building with five operating rooms (one with intra-operative MRI and one hybrid for vascular surgery) and a specialised ICU Unit with altogether 60 beds. The Imaging Center and Gamma Knife Center are also in the same Building run by the Neurosurgical Department. Almost 3000 neurosurgical procedures and 10.000 ambulatory treatments each year are performed and a very busy research team is publishing more than 100 peer reviewed scientific papers in all foals of neurosurgery.
Professor Roessler himself is specialist in image guided surgery and augmented reality in epilepsy surgery of children and adults as well as in advanced techniques in skull base surgery especially in vestibular schwannomas. He is currently vice president of the International Epilepsy Surgery Society (IESS).
