On December 9, 2022, Mr. Glaß, as managing director of the Heinrich-Braun-Klinikum Zwickau, location Werdauer Straße (formerly Paracelsus Klinik), announced during a works assembly that the Saxon Ministry for Social Affairs has decided to withdraw the Werdauer Straße division's concession for the specialist field of neurosurgery by March 1, 2023.

As a result, corresponding services such as the treatment of Tarlov cysts and leptomeningopathy can no longer be offered in Zwickau. We are working intensively on continuing to ensure the medical care of our patients.

The work of our foundation remains unaffected by this and will be continued as always!


From February 09 to 21, the Vigdis Thompson Foundation office will be closed.
