Prof. Dr. Andreas Raabe, MD specializes in brain tumors surgery, aneurysms and spinal diseases. To protect important motor functions during brain surgery, Andreas Raabe has developed a new continuous monitoring method. He has also introduced microscope-integrated video-angiography to neurosurgery for the operation of aneurysms and vascular malformations. For the development of these innovative surgical procedures, he received the prestigious “European Lecture” award from the European Society of Neurosurgery in 2019.

In September 2020, Andreas Raabe together with two scientists from Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc. was nominated for the German Future Prize for the development of an innovative robotic visualization system in neurosurgery.

His professional training and specialization was supplemented and deepened during annual stays at renowned universities abroad. Andreas Raabe is a regular speaker at national and international courses or congresses, especially on topics such as training, surgical techniques, innovations in surgery, aneurysms and brain tumors.

Andreas Raabe is a member of several national and international professional societies and a reviewer for the most important international journalist in the field of neurosurgery. He is also a reviewer for the Swiss National Science Foundation and the German Research Foundation.

Professor Raabe`s list of publications includes more than 360 original papers, reviews or book contributions.
