Charité Physicians Treating Yulia Timoschenko

Back to Overview

You are here:

Since February 2012, physicians from the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin have been examining and treating Yulia Timoschenko in Kharkiv, Ukraine. The Charité has also offered to ensure follow-up treatment of their patient here in Germany. Yulia Timoschenko has since arrived in Berlin and physicians at the Charité have already started to treat her.

Immediately after her arrival, the team of Charité physicians started their examinations and ordered the preliminary therapeutic measures. Prof. Dr. Karl Max Einhäupl, the Charité's Board Chairman and a neurologist stated "Yulia Timoschenko is doing as well as can be expected given the circumstances resulting from her history of herniated disks and vertebral joint inflammation. We will now determine the best therapy for her back pain."

The team of physicians reported that her pain symptoms will initially be treated conservatively with analgesics. Starting today, Yulia Timoschenko is also receiving physical therapy.

Over the days to come, specialists in the fields of orthopedics, physical medicine, neurology, in addition to neurosurgery and neuroradiology will be carrying out further diagnostic and therapeutic measures. At  the appropriate time, Charité's medical experts will decide whether or not the patient will require surgery.
