Neurology with Neurovascular Medicine

The department of Neurology & Stroke (Clinical Director: Prof. Dr. Ulf Ziemann) covers a broad variety of neurological disorders.

Patients are referred locally, supra-regionally and internationally, in accord with our clinical and research focus, in particular in the areas of neurovascular disease (brain ischemia, intracranial hemorrhage, vasculitis), early neurorehabilitation (recovery and plasticity after stroke), neurooncology (brain and spinal tumors, brain metastases), and neuroimmunology (multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica, myasthenia gravis). More information

In addiction to the research is the study project MWKNeuroReha. The study investigates which factors contribute to how stroke patients benefit from neurorehabilitation by collecting clinical, electrophysiological, imaging and laboratory data in the acute phase of stroke as well as later during rehabilitation and after 90 days.
