2 Neurology ClinicNeurology clinic continues the best tradition established by pioneer work of Dr Laza Lazarević, father of the modern Serbian neurology.The Clinic for Nerve and Mental Diseases and at the same time Department of Psychiatry and Neurology were established on October 10th, 1923.
3 Neurology ClinicSince its establishment all the way to the present days, the institution has always been a place of gathering of the most eminent clinical neurologists from Serbia, teaching base for the students, and residents having neurological advanced training in their curricula as well as center for the scientific research in the field of clinical and experimental neurology.
4 Neurology ClinicNeurology clinic is technically equipped for performing highly specialized diagnostic procedures (immunological and genetic analyses, neurophysiological and neuroradiological diagnostic procedures).
5 Scientific contribution The Clinic of Neurology fosters intensive scientific research activities intended at better understanding of causes of the most common brain diseases, establishment of correct diagnosis and testing of the new therapeutic possibilities.The results of basic and clinical research are applied in everyday work with patients aimed at developing of most up-to-date diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
6 Scientific contribution Dynamic development in the field of neurosciences is particularly apparent in the increasingly high therapeutic potentials. Thus, our Clinic carries out trials and tests of efficacy and tolerability of the latest therapeutic modalities in the field.
7 Neurology ClinicThe Neurology Clinic, Clinical Center of Serbia is a national leader, and among the leading centers of neurology in the region owing to its continuous professional and technological development, in treating and researching the most complex neurological disorders, advancing innovations in neurodegenerative disorders, epilepsy, stroke, immune mediated nervous system disorders.Annually, our staff of more than 40 specialists serves 10,000 patients with a variety of neurological disorders.
