Integrated treatment concept

MILLESI CENTER at the Wiener Privatklinik offers integrated treatment concepts concerning nerve injuries, pain syndromes and nerve reconstruction, including nerve transplantation.

Previous years have shown that best results in therapy are received by taking the brain, the central nervous system, the peripheral nerves and the muscular system as one functional unit. In the past, it was already considered a success when an accident victim could flex the entirely paralyzed elbow again. Today, even in difficult cases, it is aimed for complex, target-oriented motions. This can only be accomplished by including the paralysed part of the muscular system and especially the brain in the therapy.

At MILLESI CENTER an interdisciplinary team of specialists attends patients for diagnosis, surgery and neuro-rehabilitation. Constant research in this area allows the MILLESI CENTER to offer treatment methods according to the newest international standards in science.
