The chief physician of the Department of Neurology, Dr. med. Michael von Brevern, is an outstanding expert in neurology. The internationally recognized specialist  has been treating dizziness and balance disorders for many years. He specializes in the treatment of Parkinson's disease and chronic pain. In the Department of Neurology, the doctor created the Stroke Unit, which provides medical care for patients with acute stroke.

The Department of Neurology at the Park-Clinic Weissensee in Berlin provides both diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases of the neuromuscular system according to the latest international recommendations. The medical team is especially specialized in the treatment of epilepsy, Parkinson's disease and other motor disorders, as well as dizziness and balance disorders. The treatment process involves the use of the state-of-the-art medical technologies and highly effective drugs, and also specialists from other fields, psycho- and physiotherapists are involved, if necessary.

The specialists have at their disposal all modern diagnostic methods of clinical neurophysiology, including cortical magnetic stimulation. For a highly specialized diagnosis of epileptic seizures, the department is equipped with a daily video EEG-monitoring. The therapeutic spectrum is complemented by the Physiotherapy Unit, which houses a large swimming pool for motor exercises designed for people with disabilities. 

The Department of Neurology has a certified Stroke Unit, which promptly performs all necessary procedures. Some beds of the Stroke Unit are equipped with a monitoring system, which ensures a constant monitoring of the patients' vital bodily functions.
