Cerebral Vascular Disorders and Stroke Program

Stroke is the fourth leading cause of mortality and the leading cause of disability in the United States. We treat patients with all vascular disorders of the brain and spine.

We have specific expertise in helping patients with the following conditions:

  • Brain aneurysms
  • Vascular malformations including for example, arteriovenous malformations, dural arteriovenous fistulas and cavernous malformations
  • Carotid artery or vertebral artery stenosis
  • Intracranial arterial stenosis
  • Ischemic Stroke (including those patients requiring emergent endovascular treatment)
  • Hemorrhagic Stroke/ Brain Hemorrhage
  • Moyamoya disease

Each of our surgeons is able to offer all treatment options to every patient including medical therapy/observation/serial imaging, minimally invasive endovascular therapy, open microsurgery and stereotactic radiosurgery as applicable. 

Our surgeons have been involved with the development of many new technologies, have led or conducted clinical trials and studies concerning stroke and cerebral vascular disorders on national and international levels and continue to teach others across the country.  We are able to offer a vast experience in treating these conditions, the latest technologies, as well as state of the art facilities including a biplane hybrid room where a patient can undergo an angiogram (to diagnose their condition) followed by treatment with either minimally invasive endovascular therapy (for example, coiling of their brain aneurysm), or open microsurgery (for example, clipping of their brain aneurysm) in the same room, with the same team during the same session.
