Ime i prezime: Kojadinović Željko

Datum rodjenja - 26. 08. 1967.


  • diplomirao sam na Medicinskom fakultetu u Novom Sadu maja 1993. godine sa prosečnom ocenom 9,92, kao najbolji student u generaciji.

  • položio sam specijalistički ispit iz neurohirurgije oktobra 2000. godine, sa ocenom odličan.

Stecene kvalifikacije i veštine 

  • obavljam dijagnostičke i terapijske procedure iz svih oblasti neurohirurgije mozga, kičme i živaca:

    1. bolesti svih delova kičme tipa: diskus hernija, spondiloza, nestabilnost, bolovi nakon operacija na kičmi
    2. terapija bola uključujući upotrebu savremenih lekova i sve vidove interventnih procedura, bez potreba za operacijom, u cilju lečenja bola. Velika je prednost da ista osoba raspolaže mogućnostima lečenja upornog bola svim terapijskim metodama (lekovi, interventne procedure i hirurgija). U većini slučajeva različitim tipovima lečenja se bave različite specijalnosti. To često rezultira nedovoljnom ili zakasnelom upotrebom adekvatnih tipova terapije bola. Naprimer kod diskus hernije pacijenti se predugo leče samo lekovima, a kada nema rezultata prelazi se odmah na hirurško lečenje iako, kod velikog broja slučajeva, interventne procedure bez upotrebe noža mogu dati bolje rezultate.

    3. tumori mozga, kičme i živaca svih lokalizacija

    4. aneurizme prednje i zadnje cirkulacije mozga

    5. angiomi velikog mozga, malog mozga i moždanog stabla

    6. intrakranijalni i spinalni apscesi svih lokalizacija

    7. povrede mozga, kičme i živaca

    8. povrede i bolesti nerava

    9. kranijalne i spinalne kongenitalne deformitete odraslih

    10. arteficijelne i autologne kranioplastike defekata lobanje

Učešće na ranijim projektima Ministarstva za nauku i tehnologiju:

  • "Legalni aspekti hirurgije" - projekat trajao 1998. -2000. godine

  • "Dijagnostika, terapija i komplikacija povreda" - projekat Instituta za hirurgiju u Novom Sadu, trajao od 1993 - 1998. godine

  • "Medjunarodni projekat ispitivanja prevencije ishemijskih promena na mozgu" Melburn, Autralia

  • Uvodjenje leka Clasosentan u kliničku upotrebu kao leka za lečenje vazospazma"- medjunarodni projekat

Magistarska teza

"Recidivne kompresivne radikulopatije lumbalne regije nakon operativnog lečenja" - Univerzitet u Beogradu 1997. godine. Tema se bavi načinima rešavanja bola koji zaostaje nakon operacije diska.

Doktorska disretacija

»Odredjivanje protokola hirurškog lečenja i prognostičkih faktora kod malignih astrocitoma velikog mozga« Rezultat disretacije je originalni Skoring sistem za davanje precizne prognoze kod malignih astrocitoma. Prezentovan je u jednom od vodećih neurohirurških časopisa »Zentralblatt für Neurochirurgie« i naišao na dobre recenzije i komentare.



Počasti i nagrade

  • najbolji student  generacije na Medicinskom fakultetu 1993. godine

  • najbolji studentski naučno-istraživački rad na Medicinskom fakultetu 1993. godine

  • stipendija Schering kompanije iz Nemačke za višemesečno usavršavanje na Nurohirurškom odeljenju univerzitetske bolnice u Berlinu, jednoj od vodećih neurohirurških ustanova

  • stipendija Schering kompanije iz Nemačke za višemesečno usavršavanje na Neurohirurškim odeljenjima  u Hanoveru Krankenhouse Nordstadt (NKH), Medicinski fakultet Hanover (MHH) i Internacionalni centar za neuronauke (INI)

Specijalizacija u drugim neurohirurškim klinikama  I USAVRŠAVANJA:

  • odeljenje za neurohirurgiju Hospital Clinico Virgen de la Arrixaca, Mursija, Španija

  • neurohirurško odeljenje Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, USA kod Prof. J.C. Maroon

  • neurohirurško odeljenje Univerzitetske bolnice BF u Berlinu, Nemačka kod prof. Maria Brocka

  • neurohirurška odeljenja tri bolnice u Hanoveru (NKH, MHH, INI), Nemačka kod prof. Majida Samii-a


  • Pohadjao sam brojne kurseve na svetskim klinikama (Berlin, Hanover, Salzburg. Pittsburgh, Hamburg, Glazgov, Opole,...) iz oblasti hirurškog lečenja kičme i hirurškog lečenja tumora mozga. Ovi kursevi su mi omogućili poboljšavanje tehnike i uvodjenje novina u hirurški rad.

  • Završen kurs dobro kliničke prakse  za ispitivanje lekova - Clinical Research and ICH GCP for Investigators  u organizaciji Quintiles


Boravak na stranim klinikama, kao i brojnim seminarima i kursevima mi je omogućio, pored sticanja znanja, sticanje i održavanje kontakata sa brojnim vrhunskim stručnjacima iz specifičnih oblasti neurohirurgije. Zahvaljujući njima uvek mogu, kod nejasnog ili retkog slučaja, kontaktirati najbolje stručnjake u toj oblasti. Ovo mi pomaže da nadjem najbolje terapijsko rešenje.
