In its role as the neurological referral center for north-west Switzerland, our clinic currently maintains 26 beds in a special Stroke Unit and treats approximately 1,000 inpatients a year. We see about 8,000 patients a year in the Neurological/Neurosurgical Clinic, and almost the same number again are examined in our diagnostic departments (Clinical Neurophysiology with EMG, ENG, evoked potentials and EEG, and for cerebrovascular ultrasound diagnosis). We work closely with the other clinics and departments of USB, the Felix Platter Hospital, Reha Rheinfelden, REHAB Basel, University Children’s Hospital Basel, University Psychiatric Hospital and Basel-Land cantonal hospitals Bruderholz and Liestal.

As part of the Medical Faculty of the University of Basel, we are involved in teaching the Bachelor and Master degree programs and carry out internationally competitive translational and clinical research in the biomedical and clinical research departments.
