  • +47 23074843

Angelika Sorteberg is a professor of clinical Neurosurgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo. She graduated from medical school at Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich, Germany. She defended her doctoral thesis about the linkage between electroencephalography and blood flow velocities in patients with vertebro-basilar insufficiency at the Ludwig Maximilian University in 1992 with laude.

In 1999 she defended her PhD thesis «A transcranial Doppler study on cerebral hemodynamics in atherosclerotic- and therapeutic carotid artery obliteration».

After immigrating to Norway, she worked at the Neurosurgical Department at Rikshospitalet-The National Hospital from 1992 from and became a board certified Neurosurgeon in 2005. From 2014 she is instituted as Head of Section, Department of Neurosurgery, Rikshospitalet-The National Hospital 

In 2003 Professor Sorteberg was awarded the Marie Spångberg Prize for her work on intra-aneurysmal flow in cerebral aneurysms prior to and after endovascular coiling.

Her main research focus and clinical work is within cerebrovascular disease, intensive care, and cerebral hemodynamics.
