Neurology

Various diseases, specific treatments

Neurological disorders, from epilepsy to Alzheimer’s disease and cerebrovascular accidents and headaches,  affect close to a billion people in the world. French hospitals provide treatments for all neurological conditions, whether they are vascular, inflammatory, degenerative, neuromuscular, neuro-oncological or neuro-resuscitation in nature.

The neurology units in France have experienced neurologists and neurosurgeons.  They treat: cerebrovascular accidents (strokes) and transient ischemic attacks (TIA), degenerative conditions: Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease…, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and vascularity, brain tumors, peripheral nervous system conditions (polyneuritis, sciatica) and muscular diseases, migraines and headaches.

In addition to the services of neurosurgeons, these hospital services also include neuro reanimators and specialists in neuro radiology imaging. Due to the vast range of facilities available in neurology, it has been possible to provide very specific treatments (subspecialty programs, high level technology care, innovations, reference centers) based on each large group of disease

The centers of excellence:

  • The Hospital Gui de Chauliac – CHRU of Montpellier,
  • The Hospital Group Paris Saint-Joseph
  • The Hospital Hôpital de la Timone,
