We look forward to your feedback.



The Department of Neurology and Neurophysiology is highly specialised in the treatment of nerve diseases of the spinal cord and peripheral nervous system.

Working closely with other teams (spine surgery, neurourology, radiology, orthopaedics, and rheumatology), we investigate spinal cord, bladder, bowel, and sexual function.

    Areas of expertise

    Treatment can be carried out in the Spinal Cord Injury Centre at Balgrist University Hospital, and encompasses conservative methods of neurorehabilitation, as well as the possibility of surgical procedures on the axial skeleton and peripheral nervous system.

    We have many years’ experience in the treatment of movement disorders and spasticity using botulinum toxin (Botox®). Our experience related to injuries of the spinal cord is your guarantee for perceptive and professional care.


    Neurological examinations and clinical neurophysiology for inpatients and outpatients

    • Electromyography (EMG)
    • Somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP)
    • Motor evoked potentials (MEP)
    • Nerve conduction studies (NCS)
    • Reflex testing Sympathetic skin response (SSR)
    • Botulinum toxin (injection for local muscle spasticity and dystonia)
    • Functional electrostimulation (FES)
    • Assessment of paralysed muscles
    • Intraoperative neurological monitoring (keeping an eye on motor and sensory nerves during operations on the spine)


    We would be happy to arrange an appointment with you. For questions we remain at your disposal.
