EMERGENCY

A sudden onset of neurological incidence might indicate a neurological emergency. Therefore we strongly recommend visiting the emergency room of the nearest hospital.

Phone number: 144

Only in a hospital the neccessary diagnostics – especially concerning imaging – are available.

Do not lose time, because: „Time is brain!“

Another recommendation: Always take a list with yourself with essential medical information:
–  Previous diseases
–  Medication
–  Allergies

It helps saving time!

SERVICES

“Wahlarzt-Ordination” (Private practice) for neurological complaints

We offer neurological consultation and advice – ambulatory & on short notice!

“Wahlarzt-Ordination” means there are no contracts between us and any health insurance company. So you have to pay us directly and send the bill to your health insurance company. You have to know that in most cases you will not be refunded 100% by a general health insurance.

Our team has plenty of time for patients – more time than other doctors can afford …

that’s why a “Wahlarzt-Ordination” might be a little more expensive.


Broad spectrum

We offer you the broad experience spectrum of a neurological practice.

“Neurological problems” can manifest themselves as:

  • Pain and headache
  • Sight disorder
  • Language and speech disorder
  • Numbness or “pins & needles”
  • Palsy or weakness
  • Coordination disturbances and tremor
  • Vertigo and gait abnormality
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Disorders of consciousness
  • Sleep disorders

Our team will be happy to advise and to furthermore help you with frequent problems, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, polyneuropathy and stroke prophylaxis.


Diagnostic specialisation

In addition to the very essential preliminary conversation and neurological examination, our practice team have experience with the following diagnostic tools:

Electroneurography (ENG) and Electromyography (EMG)

Electroneurography (ENG) uses current stimuli to measure nerve function. Nerve conduction velocity (NLG) and amplitude are relevant for assessment.

Electromyography (EMG) uses needle electrodes to “listen inside” the muscle.

Electroencephalography (EEG)

Electroencephalography (EEG) is used to record “brain waves.” For example, localized or generalized slowing or increased cerebral excitability can be detected. Such controls are also necessary for the treatment of epilepsy.

Doppler-/Duplexsonography

This ultrasound procedure can gently and effectively assess the neck arteries. This information is also relevant in the context of stroke prevention.

Polygraphy (outpatient sleep screening)

The sleep screening device can be taken home, so that the examination takes place in the bed at home. Since sleep laboratories often have long waiting times, this method can provide initial indications and help explain the cause of daytime sleepiness.
