Neurology

 

Our confident team of specialists performed more than 20,000 outpatient examinations and admitted 3,000 hospitalized patients in the past 7 years. The Department of Neurology is the first in the country to  introduce thrombolytic treatment (lysis of blood clots) in patients suffering from an acute stroke. Since 2016, the neurological team has been implementing an intraoperative neuromonitoring in many operations in order to reduce the risk of unwanted complications and injury of nerve tissues during surgery.

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT

At the Department, we apply the most advanced diagnostic tools (EEG – electroencephalography, EMG – electromyography, EP – evoked potentials, computerized tomography and arteriography, as well as the most sophisticated magnetic resonance imaging device 3 Tesla).

Such methods are used in the diagnostics of:

  • Headaches
  •  Epilepsies
  •  Cerebrovascular diseases
  •  Dizziness
  •  Degenerative diseases (Parkinson’s disease)
  •  Lumbago and sciatica
  •  Spondylosis
  •  Nerves injuries of various causes and monitoring the condition for renewing the function of damaged nerves
  •  Inflammation of the peripheral nerves
  •  Congenital muscle diseases (myopathies)
  •  Inflammatory muscle diseases (myositides)
  •  Neuromuscular junction diseases (Myasthenia gravis)

 

 

NEUROMONITORING

Since 2016, the neurological team has been implementing an intraoperative neuromonitoring in many neurosurgical operations in order to reduce the risk of unwanted complications and injury of the nervous tissue during surgery.

THROMBOLYSIS

A stroke is a sudden loss of the function of a particular part of the brain due to impaired blood circulation. In cases when blood supply to the brain is stopped for 5 minutes irreversible damage occurs and brain cells death is inevitable. Thrombolysis is cutting edge therapy for treatment of strokes. Its application is intravenous which causes breakdown of blood clots thus preventing further stroke damage. If patients are treated within 3 to 6 hours of the stroke occurrence, blood clots breakdown allows for a quick restoration of circulation in the clogged artery. As a result, a large and permanent brain damage is prevented. The application of thrombolysis treatment reduces or minimizes disability in patients with such disease.

MULTIDISCIPLINARY ACCESS

There is statistical evidence to our success results but we value the satisfaction of our patients most of all. The greatest success of the Department of Neurology is its multidisciplinary approach that enables timely diagnosis and emergency treatment of patients with strokes, as well as diagnosis and treatment of all neurological diseases in adults and children.
