A fully organized Neurology Department has been operating within the Athens Euroclinic since its establishment. The Department is staffed by physicians who have excellent scientific training and long experience, ensuring top-level medical and nursing services for patients. The Neurology Department places patients at the core of its activities and focuses on individualized care, while paying special attention to the psychological wellbeing of patients and their immediate environment.
The Department physicians regularly attend training and postgraduate seminars on the latest medical techniques, offering a strong competitive edge to the Hospital’s Neurology Department.
The impeccable organization and operation of the Neurology Department are evident in all aspects involved in the management of neurological patients, from the moment they arrive at the Emergency Medicine Department or the Regular Outpatient Clinic to the time they are discharged, with regular follow-ups thereafter.
A large part of the Neurology Department procedures are performed in the One-Day Clinic (ODC), since many patients suffering from chronic neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, are only hospitalized for a short while for intravenous administration of medications.
The Neurology Department also offers its services to patients hospitalized in other internal medicine or surgical departments within the Athens Euroclinic.
It works with the imaging department (MRI, CT, arterial Doppler ultrasound, interventional radiology), cardiology (heart Doppler ultrasound, Holter monitor, etc), neurosurgery, hematology, clinical biochemistry, immunology, the ICU and the ODC.
The Athens Euroclinic Neurology Department offers comprehensive services for the diagnosis, monitoring, hospitalization and treatment of outpatients and inpatients with neurological conditions. The latest treatments are performed, focusing on individualized care, adjusted to the needs of each patient.
The Department handles the following conditions:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Cerebral vascular accidents (stroke)
- Parkinson’s disease
The Neurology Department specializes in multiple sclerosis, a disease that mostly affects the younger population. Nowadays, thanks to the new treatments available and their immediate application, both disease progression and further disability may be prevented.
A cerebral vascular accident (stroke) is another condition that can cause severe disability. In this case, if the patient is taken to hospital within 3 hours from the time the stroke occurred, it is possible to perform intravenous, transarterial or mechanical thrombolysis, which greatly improves the extent of the disability, if not prevent it completely.
- A Multiple Sclerosis Clinic and a Memory Disorder Clinic operate within the Outpatient Clinic. Electromyograms, encephalographies and evoked potentials may also be performed on outpatients.
- Apart from the clearly medical services, the Department can also fill out prescriptions and issue referrals for clinical pathology tests through the National Organization for Healthcare (EOPYY). It may also issue medical certificates for the Disability Certification Centre (KEPA).
The Neurophysiology Lab forms an integral part of the Neurology Department. It is equipped with an EMG system, an EEG system and an evoked potentials device, and staffed by physicians with long experience and suitable training.
Medical Infrastructure & Technology
Apart from its own state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment (EMG system, EEG system and evoked potentials device), the Athens Euroclinic Neurology Department is fully supported by the modern infrastructure and excellent scientific personnel of the imaging department (CT, MRI, ultrasounds, interventional radiology, scintigraphy, etc), hematology, clinical biochemistry and immunology, as well as the fully equipped ICU and ODC.
