  • Brain tumors, both intra-axial and extra-axial.
  • Infections and infestations, including brain abscesses.
  • Neurocysticercosis (parasitic infection of the central nervous system).

  • Congenital conditions affecting the central nervous systems, including Chiari malformation type 1 and spina bifida (birth defects that occur when the spine and spinal cord don’t form properly).

We use advanced diagnostic imaging and surgical techniques, such as minimally invasive and image-guided surgery, to provide our patients with precise and effective treatment.

KFHR is also the headquarters of Rwanda Neurological Centre, an academically-oriented center of excellence founded in 2010.
