The Center of Neurology at Vilnius University Hospital Santaros Clinics is a clinical, teaching, and research facility, devoted to improving the understanding and providing the treatment of diseases of the nervous system.

Our goal is to provide the highest level of evidence-based patient care, to educate future leaders in the field of neurology, and to keep up with the advances in neurological research. The center houses outstanding faculty, dedicated staff and excellent resident trainees, working in close cooperation with Vilnius University Faculty of Medicine.

The Department of Neurology has consistently been awarded the European Stroke Organisation „ESO Angels Gold Award“, in compliance with the internationally recognized stroke quality measures. The Subdepartment of Clinical Neurophysiology includes the only Certified European Reference Center in Neurosonology in Lithuania.

The Center of Neurology collaborates closely with the Competence Center of Rare Epilepsy under the Rare Diseases Coordination Center.

Since 2006 the Center of Neurology includes the first specialist Center for Alzheimers Disease and Other Dementias in Lithuania, which provides state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatment for patients with cognitive impaitment, and participates in top-level clinical trials of disease modifying drugs in Alzheimers disease.

Multiple Sclerosis Center provides early diagnostics and modern treatment (including autogous hematopeietic stem cell transplantation) for patients with multiple sclerosis and demyelinating disorders, manages Lithuanian national Registry for Multiple Sclerosis, and participates in clinical trials of disease modifying drugs in demyelinating diseases.
The Center of Neurology provides 24/7 emergency care, as well as all inpatient and outpatient neurological services. It consists of the inpatient departments of Neurology and Psychiatry, Outpatient Subdepartment of Neurology, Subdepartment of Emergency Neurology, and Subdepartment of Clinical Neurophysiology.

The Outpatient Subdepartment of Neurology hosts services for Alzheimers Disease and Other Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis and Demyelinating Disorders, Epilepsy and Sleep Disorders, Parkinson‘s Disease and Movement Disorders, as well as Neuromuscular Disorders. In addition, cerebral and spinal vascular disorders, inflammatory, degenerative, neuromuscular, peripheral nervous system diseases, headaches, vestibular, and other disorders of the nervous system are diagnosed and treated.

The Subdepartment of Clinical Neurophysiology hosts a certified European Reference Center in Neurosonology. Its neurophysiologists perform electroencephalography (EEG), sleep EEG, polysomnography, and long-term video EEG monitoring, nerve conduction studies, electromyography, evoked (visual, somatosensory, auditory, motor, and event-related) potential studies, as well as transcranial magnetic stimulation. Computer tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), digital subtraction angiography (DSA) as well as other imaging modalities are readily available.
