The department is equipped with advanced medical equipment for comprehensive diagnostics of neurological disorders: electroencephalography, electroneuromyography, ultrasound and imaging diagnostic methods (MRI, CT, PET). Depending on the complexity of the clinical situation, the department offers both outpatient and inpatient treatment. Neurologists pay great attention to the moral support of young patients and their parents. The goal of all specialists in the department is to provide optimal therapy for a sustainable improvement in the quality of life and health of patients with neurological disorders. The department doctors are members of the European and American neurological communities so that they can offer treatment according to the latest medical standards.
The department specializes in treating children with cerebral palsy, diseases of the musculoskeletal system, and neuromuscular diseases. Treatment of hydrocephalus, spina bifida and other brain and spinal cord malformations is carried out in cooperation with the department of neurosurgery. The range of tasks also includes the treatment of children with mental retardation. The department's neurologists conduct various studies to determine the cause and degree of developmental delay and then choose the best treatment option. During the therapeutic process, doctors use different pharmacotherapy regimens, psychological assistance, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, curative education, and other methods to help eliminate a neurological disorder, control the pathology, and improve the child's condition.
