The Institut Guttmann is a private foundation committed to the people to whom it provides personalised and highly specialised medical and surgical care in the field of neurorehabilitation and brain health.
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.

Every year, we see around 5,000 patients affected by severe neurological pathologies.

There are about 900 hospital admissions a year with 350 surgical interventions in our specialty.
