Neurosurgery and Pediatric Neurosurgery Illustrations
Since 2019, I have had the privilege of collaborating on numerous illustration projects for the University Children's Hospital Basel, specializing in Pediatric Neurosurgery. These meticulously designed illustrations serve to visually depict intricate treatments, surgeries, and a diverse range of conditions, encompassing illnesses, birth defects, and surgical interventions for tumors and cysts.
Additionally, I have created several illustrations for the Department of Neurosurgery at Basel University Hospital and the Department of Neurosurgery at Zurich University Hospital. With a strong emphasis on precision and clarity, my illustrations aim to enhance understanding, facilitate effective communication, and provide valuable support to medical professionals in their work. I am deeply committed to delivering visuals that faithfully portray the complexities of Neurosurgery and Pediatric Neurosurgery, serving as invaluable educational tools for healthcare professionals and patients alike.
The illustrations below depict the complex subject of craniosynostosis, a condition where one or more of the fibrous sutures in an infant skull fuse prematurely. These illustrations, focusing on metopic, coronal, and sagittal synostosis, explain the placement of the young patient and the surgical approaches for treatment, including endoscopic procedures. Created in close collaboration with a pioneering pediatric neurosurgeon at the University Children's-Hospital beider Basel, these works fill a significant gap in visual resources and are primarily aimed at educating patients and their families. The challenge of conveying this complicated medical condition through illustration is both rewarding and fulfilling, driven by my passion for pediatric illustration.
In addition to my work on craniosynostosis, I illustrated a series of images that provide a detailed look at the treatment options for Hydrocephalus in babies and toddlers. This series covers a variety of surgical interventions, such as Shunts, the Rickham Reservoir, the Ventriculosubgaleal Shunt (vSGV), Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy (ETV), laparoscopy, and External Ventricular Drainage (EDV). These illustrations serve as valuable educational resources for medical professionals, but they are primarily designed to help educate parents and caregivers about the range of treatments available for this condition.
I look forward to new collaborations and challenges, and welcome healthcare professionals, art directors and organizations to contact me. Let's explore how my medical illustrations can assist in your work, turning complex medical concepts into comprehensible visuals.
