Dr. med. Laszlo Entz PhD, FIPP

"BETTER ONE EXTRA CONSULTATION...MY PATIENTS NEED TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THE OBJECTIVES ARE"

Dr. med. Laszlo Entz was born in 1981 in Budapest, Hungary. After graduating, he studied at the Faculty of Medicine at Semmelweis University in Budapest. Having previously spent a year as an Erasmus student at the Friedrich Wilhelm University in Bonn, he later spent 3 months at the State University of New York in Buffalo (USA) to expand his knowledge with international experience. His internship at the renowned neurosurgical centre in Buffalo ultimately inspired him to specialise in neurosurgery.

 

Before his specialist training, he spent 4 years researching the effect of direct brain stimulation on epilepsy surgery patients. As part of his research work, he also spent a year in New York as a Fulbright Fellow with Dr. Ashesh Mehta. This cooperation and the publications led to the defence of his PhD title at Semmelweis University in 2015.

 

He began his specialised neurosurgical training in 2010, as a resident at the National Institute for Clinical Neurosciences, Budapest. During his training, he worked under the direct guidance of Dr. Loránd Erőss(Head of the Functional Neurosurgical Department), where he also gained in-depth knowledge of the surgical treatment of epilepsy, chronic pain, spasticity and movement disorders. In 2015, he completed the written specialist examination of the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) and in the same year he passed the Hungarian specialist examination with summa cum laude. He was then appointed Senior Physician.

In 2017 he applied for a fellowship programme at the Schulthess Clinic (Zurich) with Prof. Dezsö Jeszenszky, and started working in Zurich in August. In Zurich, he has worked extensively with complex congenital, acquired and traumatic spinal diseases in order to deepen his knowledge of spinal surgery. Since 2018, he has been the clinic’s deputy senior physician and works independently to provide surgical and minimally invasive treatment of his patients.

In 2019, due to his interest in minimally invasive brain surgery and neuroendoscopy, he worked as a fellow at the Centre for Neurosurgery at Hirslanden, with Professor Robert Reisch.

Today, he is a senior physician at the Neurosurgery Centre, where he continues to focus on the surgical, conservative, minimally invasive and neuromodulatory treatment of spinal diseases. Together with Professor Reisch, he also assists with the development of endoscopic skull-base surgery in Budapest, with regular operations and case discussions.
