Fields of Neurology

Fields of neurology

Neurology deals with the diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the brain, the spinal cord, the nerves, and the muscles.

A neurologist treats his patients with medication. If an operation is needed, the patient will be referred to a neurosurgeon.

Besides the classic fields of neurology, we are also specialised in neuroradiology, neurosurgery, and neuro-urology.

Neurological Infrastructure

Neurological infrastructure

In medicine, the better the infrastructure the more precise the diagnosis and the more effective the treatment. Therefore, we are investing in medical devices and in training our qualified personnel regularly, both on a large scale.

Besides medical boards, in which doctors from different fields work together, our Hirslanden clinics provide a highly modern infrastructure. Our stroke-center, a Hybrid-OP, a Neuro Suite and a Brain Suite allow us to provide comprehensive care for our patients.
