Neuropediatrics<br /> Our Focal Points

We provide comprehensive care for children with developmental disorders, handicaps and diseases of the nervous system/musculoskeletal system.

The following complaints and disease patterns are at the forefront:

  • Headache
  • Physical disability
  • Infections of the nervous system, meningitis
  • Genetic syndromes
  • Lyme disease (Borreliosis)
  • Muscular disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis in children and young adults
  • Rett syndrome
  • Infantile brain damage
  • Tuberous sclerosis
  • Mental disability

The neuropaediatric team consists of:

  • Physicians
  • Paediatric nurses
  • EEG assistants (MTF assistants)
  • Physiotherapists
  • Ergotherapists
  • Social workers

The examination and treatment of the children is based on the principle of „outpatient previous to inpatient“. It is being decided according to the individual requirements whether the children are being treated within the authorisation consultation, in the day clinic or on the ward. The long-term attendance of the chronically ill and handicapped children takes place in association with the Social Paediatric Centre.

In association with the Social Paediatric Centre, as well regular conferences take place, where the patients are being examinated all together and where their disease patterns are being discussed in detail.
