About the Unit
The Neurology Unit conducts the following diagnostics and treatment:
- Nervous system disorders:
- multiple sclerosis;
- degenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s and dementia syndromes;
- apoplexy, including thrombolytic treatment;
- acquired peripheral neuropathies;
- epilepsy, including drug-resistant epilepsy;
- spinal pain syndrome.
The Neurology Unit participates in a number of international research programmes for new medications to cure multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. The research programmes have enabled our doctors to attend many international trainings and present their own achievements at Polish and foreign conferences.
At the Clinical Neurophysiology Department we use our state-of-the-art equipment to perform the following examinations:
- evoked potentials (VEP, SEP, BAEP);
- electromyography (EMG, SFEMG, ENG);
- electroencephalography (EEG, 24-hour EEG record, EEG video monitoring).
Currently, as part of the research work, the Neurology Unit participates in international research programmes for implementation of new medications in multiple sclerosis therapy (e.g. monoclonal antibodies) – including assessment of medications used so far to modify the course of the disease (beta interferons, glatiramer acetate) as part of a treatment programme of the National Health Fund (NFZ) – assessment of atherosclerosis risk factors in the course of ischemic brain disease as well as assessment of the effectiveness of new medications for Parkinson’s disease, dementia syndromes and acquired neuropathies.
