About the department
The Department of Neurological Rehabilitation at the Clinic MediClin Bad Orb offers rehabilitation programs for patients with neurological diseases, as well as conditions after neurosurgical interventions. The specialists of the department deal with the treatment of all neurological pathologies, in which conservative therapies are effective. Early rehabilitation in phase B prevents the development of complications and successfully prepares the patient for the further recovery. The continuation of rehabilitation in phase C allows the patient to become independent and not to depend on the outside help in the future. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Elmar Ginzburg.
The department specializes in classical early neurological rehabilitation, that is, the treatment of patients in phase B. Such patients often still have severe symptoms, they are severely limited in their daily activities and depend on the help of nursing staff and therapists. The intensive care phase can be completed, but still intensive monitoring may be necessary in the beginning. The patients may be in a state of wakeful coma and breathe through a tracheostomy tube. Sometimes such patients can take an active part in therapy. Therefore, in addition to intensive medical therapy, great attention is also paid to long-term therapeutic treatment and care.
The department also treats patients in phase C, who also need comprehensive medical care (for example, in care of postoperative wounds). In cooperation with the Offenbach Hospital, there was developed a program that offers intensive and rehabilitative therapy "from a single source".
Another focus of the department is neuro-orthopedics. Within the framework of the specialized center, patients with combined neurological and orthopedic diseases undergo rehabilitation. Neuro-orthopedic treatment is based on an interdisciplinary therapeutic approach.
In addition, in collaboration with the Offenbach Hospital, there was created the specialized Stroke Center. This center offers comprehensive treatment for stroke patients – from intensive care in an acute stage of the disease to rehabilitation.
