“Brain encodes the unique identity of each human being. As brain cells stop dividing after birth, lifelong brain health maintenance and protection against neurological diseases and degeneration are thus imperative. With the collaborative effort amongst neurologists, neuroscientists, specialty nurses and allied healthcare professionals, we endeavour to advance in the knowledge of understanding and treating neurological diseases. We are also devoted to providing expert patient care and promotion of brain health for the citizens of Hong Kong. We strive to bring hope, courage, and quality of life to our patients. Please join hands and find out more of our Division on this website.”
