Dr. Stephan Arnold
Specialist Centre for Neurology
Are you looking for the outpatient or inpatient treatment of neurological diseases and pain in adults? Then we are here for you. Our specialists are leaders in the field of epilepsy and seizure disorders. We also place a focus on movement disorders (e.g. Parkinson’s disease) and pain disorders (e.g. neuropathies and headaches) and would be happy to treat you for these conditions.
Whether in the neurological outpatients’ clinic or in our clinic for neurology, we offer you the most modern diagnostic and treatment methods, such as, for example, video EEG monitoring in epilepsy.
Our treatment concepts are multimodal and interdisciplinary. In this way we always treat you in a comprehensive and holistic way.
In epilepsy we offer you special, modern examination procedures, such as, for example, a multi-day logging of the brain’s electrical curve under video monitoring, which is known as video EEG monitoring. With special MRI imaging techniques for the recognition of epilepsy-related changes in the brain, in our multi-modal treatment concept for new medications including the modified Atkins diet we care for you individually and completely in accordance with your needs. Inpatient, outpatient and for all health insurance companies.
As one of over 30 centres in Germany, together with the Specialist Centre for Neurosurgery and Epilepsy Surgery, we offer you Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Similarly to a cardiac pacemaker, a small computer, which is known as a stimulator or “brain pacemaker” is implanted under the skin of the stomach or chest. Also under the skin, electrodes go out of this stimulator along thin wires to the brain and, through a neurosurgically inserted borehole, through the scullcap into the brain, to the place - down to the millimetre - that is responsible for the movement disorder. Then the individually programmed stimulator triggers tiny electric pulses. In this way, we help you to reduce the main complaints of physical inactivity, tremors and increased muscle tone. It is to be expected that there will be a reduction in the amount of medication you require.
