Neurology and epileptology

First Seizure Clinic

In her neurological clinic within the Beta Klinik, Dr. Judith Maria Hoffmann offers a comprehensive range of treatments relating to neurological illnesses focusing on wide, thorough, multi-level, diagnostics, whose basis is an in-depth discussion together with extensive biographic data and illnesses not included in the neurological specialist field. Considerable time is allocated to every patient. A holistic approach to the treatment is important to Dr. Hoffmann as often alongside the neurological examination, a psychiatric finding becomes apparent.
For the diagnostics, Dr. Hoffmann uses a 3-Tesla-MRI scanner and special EEG procedures as well as standard electrophysiological examination possibilities such as Doppler sonography (ultrasound) of the cerebral vessels. Same day interdisciplinary co-treatment with colleagues from other in-house specialist fields is also possible when necessary. Individual treatment concepts can be gladly arranged. Balance related disorders such as dizziness are a good example of the teamwork between Neurologist, ENT, internal specialist and cardiologist all under the same roof. The most modern facilities in the Beta Klinik are available for in-patient stays.

Headache Clinic for Out Patients in Bonn

One of Dr. Hoffmann’s special focus points is headache diagnostics and therapy. Some five million people suffer from headaches in Germany. The reasons are wide and diverse ranging from acute illnesses (brain haemorrhage and tumours), chronic strain, hyper-excitability of neurons in the brain, constriction or enlargement of the blood vessels (for example migraine) right through to an excess in daily life (stress, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine and fasting). The two most common forms of tension headaches and migraine account for around ninety percent of all headache illnesses. There is often a display of a combination of different types of headache.
