Dr. De Leonni Stanonik's bio
This content was provided by Dr. De Leonni Stanonik "Mateja de Leonni Stanonik, MD, MA, PhD (former Surgeon General of the Republic of Slovenia) Dr. Mateja de Leonni Stanonik, MA, MD, PhD, is leading a multidisciplinary Neurology and Psychiatry Clinic and Institute called the Vita Medica Institute with a focus on stroke/vascular neurology as well as women's issues within neurological disorders. Since the additional training in vascular neurology Dr. de Leonni Stanonik has also been very passionate about women's issues in neurology. Conditions that affect the brain can be trickier to treat in women than men. Hormones and reproductive concerns men don't encounter can influence women's neurological conditions and courses of treatment. To better serve female patients at all stages of life, including pregnancy and menopause, and to advance research in neurological conditions facing women, Dr. de Leonni is joining forces to create The Women's Neurology Center at the Vita Medica Institute. The center is one of its kind in Tucson, and one of only a small number of such women-focused neurology centers across the country. Patients will have the opportunity to participate in research trials focused on female neurological issues. Dr. de Leonni Stanonik incorporates an integrated medicine approach to patient care versus an approach based solely on pharmacology. Reproductive health and issues related to women's hormones are also a focus. When a woman is diagnosed with a neurological condition, Dr. de Leonni Stanonik takes her through issues related to contraception, hormones, pregnancy and menopause. This takes extra time and expertise that Vita Medica is prepared to handle. Younger women need to be educated about how their neurological condition will affect pregnancy and contraceptive choices. Mature women need to be especially cognizant of how their symptoms may change during menopause."
