For example, the study of thin fibers of the skin using various immunofluorescent staining to identify diseases such as polyneuropathy of fine fibers.

The clinic is also famous for its achievements in pediatric neurosurgery. Already since 1990, serious surgical interventions have been successfully carried out on adults and children. Such operations as microsurgical removal of tumors and vascular formations of the brain and spinal cord, microsurgical treatment of various diseases of the spine, surgery of the base of the skull, pituitary and orbit, as well as radiosurgical treatment of vascular formations and tumors (gamma knife), treatment of injuries of the brain and spinal cord and neuro-endoscopy These are just some of the many possibilities of the neurosurgery clinic. One of the newest advantages of the pediatric neurosurgery clinic is the implantation of the so-called baclofen pump for children suffering from cerebral palsy, this method is achieved by reducing spasticity, reducing hyperkinesis and suppressing the pantonex reaction, and the effect is achieved with much lower doses of baclofen than when taken in pill form.
