Specialities

Neurology

was covered by internists and general practitioners until it grew more and more to eventually become an own speciality. Diagnostic procedures as well as therapeutic options have constantly improved. Many neurological diseases today like Multiple Sclerosis, Pakinson’s Disease, Migraine, Cluster- Headache and other headache specialties can nowadays be diagnosed and treated much better with newly developed medications which lead to an improved quality of life.

Neurological symptoms, if diagnosed at an early stage as a part of an underlying neurological disorder, can often be treated to mitigate the course of the disease or even to cure.

Our Neurological Center provides the whole spectrum necessary to diagnose and treat neurological diseases.
