We provide highly specialised assessment and treatment of diseases of the brain and nervous system. The most common diagnoses we treat are stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumours and multiple sclerosis (MS).

We are also able to provide care for hundreds of rarer neurological diseases. Both Lund and Malmö have clinics, day care and inpatient care.

Specific interventions from a whole team, all of whom have specialised knowledge of neurological diseases, are essential if we are to achieve the goals of maintaining function, activity and participation throughout the course of the disease. We have multidisciplinary specialist teams for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), epilepsy, multiple sclerosis (MS), neuromuscular diseases, movement disorders, stroke and tumours.

We have taken the initiative to set up a regional on-call stroke service, thereby enhancing acute stroke care in Skåne and the rest of southern Sweden. Its aim is to increase the number of patients who have access to emergency thrombolysis, and to detect more cases in need of advanced treatment in the form of thrombectomy.


A series of clinical research projects are in progress in areas such as stroke, Parkinson’s, dementia, epilepsy and inflammatory diseases.

We are responsible for the Lund Stroke Register, which examines the prevalence of stroke in the community, risk factors, care and factors affecting prognosis after stroke. The objective is for our research to lead to better stroke prevention and better treatments for patients who have had a stroke.

We also work together with Lund University, Kristianstad University and the Parkinson’s Foundation to run the Swedish Parkinson Academy, which promotes interaction between basic and clinical research for promising young researchers in all professions.
