The clinic provides a full range of treatments for acute and chronic neurological diseases, both in outpatient and inpatient setting. A particular professionalism is shown in the treatment of patients with cerebrovascular diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and muscle disorders (the main specialization of the Department of prof. Dr. S. Petri), with neuroimmunological diseases, such as, eg., Multiple sclerosis, with movement disorders eg., Parkinson's disease, and neurological complications after organ transplantation, and HCV encephalopathy.

The intensive care unit with 10 beds (three additional beds and monitors) for stroke patients, Stroke Unit, which has been re-certified as an inter-regional office (special department for patients with ischemic attack), occupies a central place. Every year, a multidisciplinary team services here more than 800 patients with acute stroke. Guided by the motto Time is Brain, it continuously performs an appropriate diagnostics and therapy, e.g., drug therapy or mechanical stenting to restore the blood supply to the affected brain areas (recanalization).

At the same time, the cause of the disease is established and all required measures to prevent the recurrent stroke (secondary prevention) are carried out. Specialized doctors and nurses carry out treatment based on physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Thanks to close cooperation with the Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology, cardiology and angiology clinic, as well as neurosurgery clinic, it became possible to cure even the most complex cases round the clock. Simultaneously, the clinic conducts research on stroke and therapeutic research, so the clinic can offer to its patients, in addition to standard therapy, participation in the clinical trial of new treatments.

Based on the result of the treatment of multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease, the clinic of neurosurgery and clinical neurophysiology was included in the list of the best clinics according to FOCUS.
