At the beginning of its establishment in 1950, Department of Neurology together with Department of Psychiatry became one department, chaired by Prof. dr. Soerojo. Along with the rapid development of neuroscience and psychiatric science, Department of Neurology was separated from Department of Psychiatry in 1977. The founding pioneers of our department were the ‘trio’ of Dr. Soeharso, Dr. Lucas Meliala and Dr. M. Landung Soebijantoro. Department of Neurology currently has ten divisions, alligned with the study groups in the Indonesian Neurologists Association (Persatuan Dokter Saraf Indonesia-Perdossi). With a total of 26 staff dedicated to education, research, and clinical care (consisting of four professors, two PhDs, and five 5 Doctorates), we hope to fulfill our missions.
Our department has developed a Stroke Unit, Memory Clinic, Sleep Clinic, and Electromedic Clinic (Electrophysiology clinic consist of Polysomnography, EEG-Brain Mapping, EMG/ENMG, and Evoked Potential) that support education, research, and clinical care in neurology. We have several modality in neurorestoration such as interactive and computerized cognitive stimulation, and also Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). We also implement Bobath concept as one of the integrative management for motor rehabilitati on espescially in poststroke patients, together with physical and occupational therapy conducted by the Rehabilitation Medicine Unit. We also implement Transcranial Doppler (TCD) examination for diagnostic and evaluation especially in cerebrovascular disease.
We are committed to research through improving quality of research and increasing number of international publications. Some academic staff are also active in activities such as writing textbooks about various aspects of neurology such as stroke and vertigo, developing stem cell center at Faculty of Medicine/DrSardjito hospital and conducting endovascular intervention. We are committed to continuously improve quality of clinical care, education, and research to become the forefront in neurology.
