About the Department of Pediatric Neurological Rehabilitation at Neurological Rehabilitation Centre Friedehorst Bremen

The Department of Pediatric Neurological Rehabilitation at the Neurological Rehabilitation Centre Friedehorst Bremen offers modern and highly effective rehabilitation procedures for children, adolescents and young people who have suffered diseases and injuries of the nervous system. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Rene Kakos.

The department includes excellently equipped diagnostic rooms, which serve to conduct such diagnostic tests as electroencephalography, electromyography, electroneurography, ultrasound scans, electrocardiography, perimetry, imaging tests (X-ray, CT, MRI), etc. The diagnostic results serve as the basis for developing an optimal rehabilitation scheme. The rehabilitation measures also take place in specially equipped rooms, under the strict supervision of the specialized doctors.

When treating young children and adolescents, doctors set themselves the goal of maximally restoring the lost functions of the nervous system and reintegrating the child into normal school and social life. During the treatment of young people with neurological disorders, the task of the rehabilitologists is also to restore the lost functions and reintegrate the patient into professional life. To achieve these goals, department’s specialists combine various rehabilitation techniques available in modern medicine.
