The Division of Neurogeriatrics cares for patients with neurological diseases across the full spectrum of neurology. Our clinical as well as our research focus is on neurodegenerative diseases, examples of which are Parkinson's disease and diseases that cause cognitive decline such as Alzheimer's disease or stroke-induced cognitive impairment and dementia. For these disorders, the division has special medical and nursing care concepts that include diagnosis, therapy and integrated care in an interdisciplinary setting.
Our division has an inpatient ward as well as four special facilities:
- Movement disorders and Parkinson's disease
- Special outpatient clinic for memory disorders
- Outpatient neurological pain clinic
- Outpatient epilepsy clinic
The uniqueness and the added value of our division are the result of the symbiosis between patient care, research and education. The division is jointly operated by the Medical University of Graz and the Styrian Hospital Association (KAGes). This interdisciplinary cooperation between both providers at the University Hospital Graz site is also reflected on our website. More information on patient care can be found at the University Hospital Graz website.
