Portrait of PD Christian Dohle, MD


Christian Dohle is a physicist and neurologist and has been working in neurorehabilitation for close to 20 years. His focus lies on the evaluation of therapeutic methods in motor rehabilitation in in-and outpatient care using imaging techniques, clinical studies, meta-analyses, and guidelines. In addition, he examines the quality of the patient care process as a whole – especially in neurorehabilitation – in the clinical practice. He has been the director of the P.A.N.-Zentrum and the research department of the Fürst Donnersmarck-Stiftung, which operates various in-patient facilities for people with disabilities, mainly with neurological causes.

Stroke is one of the most common causes of disability in adulthood but the consequences are not irreversible. Effective, targeted therapy can help reduce deficits or restore independence in everyday life. In order to identify the best possible therapy, the underlying mechanisms must be understood and concepts for implementation in everyday therapeutic practice must be developed. Administrative constraints must also be taken into account during implementation. A consistent orientation towards the needs of those affected is essential.
