The Department of Neurology and Palliative Medicine at the Academic Hospital Cologne-Merheim under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Volker Limmroth deals with the treatment of adults with neurological diseases. The treatment is focused on pathological organic changes in the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles.  

The Academic Hospital Cologne-Merheim is equipped with the state-of-the-art technology for the diagnosis of neurological diseases. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging provide excellent opportunities for a precise detection of changes in the brain and spinal cord with both minimal load and risk. In addition, the medical team under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Volker Limmroth has different neurophysiological examination methods, including electroencephalogram (EEG), electroneurography and electromyography (ENG and EMG to measure nerve conduction velocity and muscle activity), all forms of evoked potentials (EP) to examine and clarify special functions of the nervous system. Various ultrasound techniques, including Doppler, duplex and transcranial duplex sonography, conducted by means of the most advanced devices, allow to examine cerebral blood flow disorders in case of artery stenosis. To clarify vertigo syndromes, there are used such methods as video-oculography and posturography.

The Academic Hospital Cologne-Merheim has 80 beds, where are annually treated over 3,000 inpatients. The neurological outpatient clinic of the Department offers consultations, as well as the preliminary and follow-up patient care. Moreover, there are special outpatient consultations for patients with headaches, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, brain tumors and botulinum toxin therapy (BTX).

The Department of Neurology and Palliative Medicine at the Academic Hospital Cologne-Merheim provides the entire spectrum of CSF diagnosis. To conduct additional examination of the brain functions and psychological aspects of neurology, the Department uses neuropsychological diagnosis and accompanying psychotherapy.
