Stereotactic surgery or stereotaxy is a minimally-invasive form of surgical intervention. It makes use of a three-dimensional coordinates system to locate small targets inside the brain and to perform on them some action such as ablation (removal), biopsy, lesion, injection, stimulation, implantation and radiosurgery. Stereotactic neurosurgery is the most valuable method for many purposes like taking biopsy from cranial masses.Growing of the neurostimulator technology opened the new eras for this method. Placement of stimulation probes for parkinson disease or destructive surgical methods now acchivement via stereotactically.

Sertac Islekel MD (Professor of Neurosurgery) is member of the minimally invasive, functional and stereotactic neurosurgery group. Main interests of Islekel are Functional and Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery, Stereotactic Neurosurgery, Neurooncology and awake neurosurgery.

Taskin Yurtseven MD (Associate Professor of Neurosurgery) member of the minimally invasive, functional and stereotactic neurosurgery. Also he interests with neurooncology, skull-base, cerebrovasculer and spinal surgery.
