CIREN: There is still hope in Cuba
This modern medical facility of the neurosciences world provides medical attention with two unique therapeutic programs, that of Neurological Restoration and the General Biological Restoration. Those programs are based on novel prospects and they have achieved great success in thousands of patients from all over the world.

The CIREN is distinguished the by utmost strictness of biomedical researches carried out from the molecular level to the multidisciplinary clinic treatment in patients with Parkinsons disease.

They have established a group of techniques aimed at treating Neurological Restoration where different factors intervene which are supported by the principle of Neurological Plasticity to obtain the organic and functional recovery of the atrophied nervous system.

Those techniques are applied by high-level multidisciplinary teams in their six specialized clinics through therapeutic practices formulated in a particular way for each patient and they are carried out daily for seven hours directed by the specialist in charge.
They count on a high-technology equipment to guarantee a high -quality interdisciplinary diagnosis and evaluation.

There we can find functional nuclear magnetic resonance (1,5T), double headed gammacamara, computerized axial tomography, ultrasonogarphy, echocardiography and hemodynamic diagnosis by Doppler ultrasonography, advanced equipment of electrophysiology, clinic laboratory, immunology, biochemistry, morphologic techniques and Cuban designed systems for the surgical projection, the observation of the electrical brain action, the computerized information process as well as motor and cognitive assessment.

The institution provides gym for adults, areas of physiotherapy, general fitting-out, mobilization and massage, functional training, defectology attention and neuropsychology, an area of holistic medicine, ozone therapy and nursing care, a regular clay line, an irregular lane with variations in the surface structure, tracks of varied structures for the reeducation of the walk, childrens gym, physical rehabilitation, pediatric defectology as well as pediatric logopedics and neuropsychology.

Among the clinics that take part of this complex we have, the Movement Disorders, the Neurodegeneration clinic, the Raquimedular Diseases Clinic, the Neuromuscular and Multiple Sclerosis Clinic, the Encephalic Static Injuries Clinic and the Clinic for Childrens Neurology.

In the Movement Disorders Unit, patients with primary and secondary Parkinsons disease has been attended and also with ataxias, chorea and balism. There are also hospitalization services, diagnosis and functional evaluation laboratories. In their surgical rooms is being carried out the surgical technique of unilateral or bilateral subtalamic nucleus with minimum access and its advantage to maintain the patient in vigil phase during the surgical procedure what allows him to move his extremities and talk to the surgeons.

This will allow reaching the exact area and the neurophysiologic checking by semi -micro-registries of the brain electrical activity, thus confirming that the surgical target is the one foreseen and obtain the best result.

Today there is an area of basic and preclinical research that includes the group of research of movement disorders aimed at developing neuroprotection.
