About the department

The department of neurology at Academic Regio Hospital Pinneberg offers modern diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to care for patients with acute and chronic neurological diseases. A total of 51 beds are available for this purpose. The department also includes a stroke unit with 11 beds, treating patients according to current medical and scientific therapy standards. The Stroke Unit is certified according to the current criteria of the German Stroke Society and the German Stroke Foundation. All the necessary neurological diagnostic procedures such as 64-slice CT, MRT and colour duplex sonography are available in cooperation with the radiology practice at the hospital. Furthermore, a team of specialised doctors and intensively trained nursing staff in the department ensure that patients receive optimal therapy for all neurological disorders.

Doctors focus on the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), the peripheral nervous system (motor, sensory and vegetative nerves) and the muscles. The department staff constantly undergoes advanced training courses and develops new treatment methods. For example, to treat Parkinson's disease, the department offers patients a particular therapy program with the so-called Parkinson's complex therapy to take care of all aspects of this disease in a specific and multi-professional manner.
