In the period from 1981 to 2006, Dr. Hanka Hertmanowska was the head of the Neurological Department at the Provincial Hospital in Poznań and in the period from 1985 to 2006 she carried out, together with the team, a comprehensive, monitored care and treatment program for people with multiple sclerosis.
Multiple Sclerosis (latin sclerosis multiplex SM) – – chronic, inflammatory demyelinating disease of the nervous system, which is the most common neurological disease affecting young adults.
The etiology and pathogenesis of the disease are still largely unclear, but it is believed that the following factors are of fundamental importance: immunological, genetic and environmental.
So far, there is no effective causative treatment of the disease and the fact that it is a multifactorial disease means that it should be treated comprehensively, as a constantly treated chronic disease and the patient should be periodically controlled at regular intervals regardless of the stage of the disease.
The treatment of people with multiple sclerosis is a complex process whose ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life of the patient, his ability to function everyday in their family, social and professional life.
Our over twenty years of experience has shown that this can only be achieved through comprehensive, monitored care and treatment that includes:
- supportive care – symptomatic treatment and chronic symptoms treatment
- treatment of relapses
- long-term treatment modifying the course of the disease
In 2011, Dr. Hanka Hertmanowska created the Neurological Non-Public Health Care Center, in which we continue the program of monitored care and treatment of people with multiple sclerosis started in 1985.
