Stroke and Acquired Brain Damage Clinic
Specialised, personalised and intensive neurorehabilitation to restore or improve functionality affected by a stroke or other form of brain damage.
The Stroke and Acquired Brain Damage Clinic offers innovative intensive and personalised specialist services that help restore or improve functionality affected by neurological injuries; the clinic comprehensively addresses different medical, physical, cognitive and/or behavioural problems caused by a stroke, traumatic brain injury, chronic neurological pathology or neurosurgical procedure, amongst others.
Neurorehabilitation is a complex and highly specialised clinical process that is used to restore, minimise and/or compensate for functional alterations in individuals affected by disability caused by a stroke or acquired brain damage.
When someone suffers a stroke or other type of brain damage, their skills, lifestyle and emotional environment are altered. As a response to this unexpected situation, patients face a learning curve in terms of physical and psychological and social dimensions alike, affecting the individuals themselves and their families. It is within this context where neurorehabilitation plays a key role in achieving the highest possible level of autonomy, recovery of self-esteem, and satisfactory active and mainstream social inclusion.
Guttmann Barcelona is an initiative of the Institut Guttmann, an international centre of reference in the neurorehabilitation of pathologies that are neurological in origin. The Stroke and Acquired Brain Damage Clinic therefore comes with the guarantee of the Institut Guttmann, as well as offering its 54 years of experience helping people recover after a stroke, traumatic brain injury or other type of brain damage and achieve the highest possible level of autonomy. Likewise, the entire team of professionals at the Guttmann Brain Health Institute is trained in the most innovative treatments and the very best methodologies, pursuing the values of the Institut Guttmann to offer personalised treatments with full scientific rigour and a friendly service.
