Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease Treatments and Services

People come to us by many routes, but always in immediate or imminent crisis. The brain, and the cerebrovascular system that supports it, are critical to our function and identity—walking, talking, seeing, hearing, thinking and knowing ourselves and others.

Once here, rest assured that you are in good hands. Each member of our neurological team is subspecialty-trained to manage the complex needs of patients with stroke and cerebrovascular disease. The extraordinary breadth of our capabilities allows us to deliver a quality of care that is truly cutting-edge and world-renowned.

Our Team

Together with a multidisciplinary team of other neurological specialists, we work to resolve crises and save lives. Our experts include:

  • Neurologists, subspecialty-trained in stroke and cerebrovascular disease
  • Neurosurgeons
  • Interventional radiologists
  • Neurointensivists, in a dedicated Neurological Intensive Care Unit (one of the first in the country)
  • Neuroanesthesiologists
  • Neuropsychologists
  • Rehabilitation specialists

Our team will review your case and develop a plan tailored to your specific needs so that each patient receives exactly what is needed to diagnose, treat, and/or prevent stroke and other cerebrovascular disorders, and restore their quality of life.
