Our goal is to ensure that patients can achieve the highest possible degree of personal autonomy that allows them to have an independent, active, normalised life, be integrated into society, and live life in their own way.

A highly specialised centre with a large number of cases

  • Every year, we see around 5,000 patients affected by severe neurological pathologies.
  • Spinal cord injury, brain injury and other neurological pathologies make up over 1,000 new patients a year, of which about 400 are children and young people aged between 0 and 16.
  • There are about 900 hospital admissions a year with 350 surgical interventions in our specialty.

Experience and quality clinical care

  • Our two centres offer comfortable facilities equipped with the latest technologies and innovations specifically designed for the care and treatment of our patients.
  • We have a team of more than 460 professionals highly specialised in a holistic approach to neurological pathologies and the treatment of brain health to benefit individuals and the people around them.
