Department of neurology with intensive therapy unit

Prof. Dr. med. Georg Hagemann

About the department

The department of neurology with intensive therapy unit at Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch provides comprehensive diagnostics and therapy for all neurological diseases, working according to the latest scientific findings and with many years of experience. The team includes highly qualified nursing staff and specialist therapists such as physiotherapists and speech therapists. The treatment of strokes is carried out in the specialized Stroke Unit. The department cooperates with renowned research institutions such as the German Multiple Sclerosis Society. All modern diagnostic procedures can be carried out in the local neurophysiological laboratory. The laboratory is recognized as a German Society for Clinical Neurophysiology training facility. Outpatients can also be examined here.

Stroke has been a therapeutic priority for the department for many years. In addition, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsies are targeted. The physicians also treat dementia, degenerative diseases, dizziness, headaches, and ataxia (impaired movement coordination). Intensive care, conservative non-surgical methods, and rehabilitation are applied.

Treatment and diagnostic focus of the department

Diagnostics of all diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles:

  • Examination of the vessels supplying the brain with Doppler and duplex sonography
  • Video - Electroencephalography (EEG)
  • Nerve Conduction Velocity Measurements 
  • Electromyography (EMG) - measurement of muscle activity
  • Multimodal Evoked Potentials - to check the nerve pathways (SEP, VEP, MEP)
  • Blink reflex examination
  • Testing of autonomic nervous systems
  • Neuropsychological examination
  • Logopedic diagnostics and therapy
  • Swallowing diagnostics (FEES)
  • Lumbar puncture (collecting spinal fluid) 

Treatment range:

  • Strokes (in the certified stroke unit)
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Dementia (e.g. Alzheimer's disease)
  • Parkinson's disease and other extrapyramidal movement disorders
  • Brain tumours
  • Epilepsies
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Inflammation, tumours, and metabolic disorders (e.g. Vitamin deficiency symptoms) of the spine
  • Damage to the nerve roots due to diseased intervertebral discs (e.g. "lumbago")
  • Pressure damage, injuries to peripheral nerves caused by accidents
  • Metabolic disorders of the peripheral nerves (so-called polyneuropathies)
  • Toxic dysfunctions of peripheral nerves
  • Neuromuscular transmission diseases such as myasthenia or Lambert-Eaton syndrome
  • Muscle inflammation 
  • Congenital metabolic disorders of the muscles
