Clinical neurological examination
To check the state and function of the brain, nerves and muscles (strength, dexterity, coordination, sensation, reflexes).
Electroneurography (ENG) to measure nerve conduction velocity and electromyography (EMG) to analyze electrical muscle activity.
Nerve pathway measurements using visual evoked potentials (VEO) to examine the visual pathway and somatic evoked potentials (SEP) to examine the sensory pathways (e.g., in herniated discs).
Brain wave measurement, EEG
Electroencephalography (EEG) is a painless examination method for recording the electrical activity of the brain's nerve cells (e.g. in seizure-like disorders such as epilepsy).
For examination of the blood vessels supplying the brain and the nerves (in case of circulatory disorders of the brain such as stroke).
Memory consultation/dementia assessment
Consultation for the assessment of memory disorders and other impairments of mental performance by means of standardized questions and test documents.
For testing cognitive functions (e.g. memory, attention, executive functions, perception, language).
Botulinum toxin consultation
In the case of spasticity (e.g. after a stroke) or dystonia such as eyelid spasm or torticollis, Botox injections can have an alleviating effect. We will advise you comprehensively.
Complaints of dizziness can have a variety of causes and require a comprehensive neurological assessment.
Removal of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the spinal canal in the region of the lumbar vertebrae to detect or exclude diseases of the central nervous system.
In close cooperation with the University Hospital Zurich, we operate a department specially equipped for the initial treatment of stroke patients - because every minute counts!
Special consultation hours
We offer specialized consultations for epilepsy (Estelle Amann) and multiple sclerosis (Prof. Thomas Grunwald, MD).
In all neurological matters, we work closely with the neurologists at Lake Zurich, who run their own practice within the hospital. In addition, we are in constant exchange with our colleagues in medicine.
