About the department
The Department of Neuropediatrics at the St. Mauritius Therapy Clinic offers modern treatments for children and adolescents with congenital and acquired disorders of the central nervous system. The Department is headed by Priv.-Doz. Dr. med. Kristina Müller, specialist in the field of pediatric and adolescent medicine, neuropediatrics and rehabilitation. Children and adolescents are admitted at any rehabilitation stage – at an early stage right after the Intensive Care Unit and at the stage of reintegration into the school environment. The Department of Pediatrics at the St. Mauritius Therapy Clinic provides relatives with an opportunity to stay together with their children.
The team of the Department under the direction of Priv.-Doz. Dr. med. Kristina Müller consists of the specialists in the field of pediatric and adolescent medicine, physiotherapists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, speech therapists, as well as therapists specializing in physical therapy, occupational therapy, therapeutic pedagogy, isotherapy, music therapy, the treatment of dysphagia and nursing staff (children’s nurses etc.). They take care of patients together with educators and school teachers, working at the Clinic. The therapists of the Department of Pediatrics at the St. Mauritius Therapy Clinic work in small teams and thus the same professionals can monitor children during their whole hospital stay. These teams develop individual treatment plans in order to achieve tangible successes in the shortest possible time.
The goal of the treatment program in the Department of Neuropediatrics at the St. Mauritius Therapy Clinic under the direction of Priv.-Doz. Dr. med. Kristina Müller is to open the potential of the child’s central nervous system (CNS) as best as possible. Therefore, the treatment concept is based on the latest neurobiological advances. The targeted intensive care that is adapted to the everyday life helps to support the ability of the central nervous system (CNS) to preserve its functions after congenital and acquired diseases. The therapeutic success is confirmed by means of standardized methods that correspond to the child’s age and development.
