Cerebrovascular / Stroke Center

Cerebrovascular disease is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, following heart disease and cancer. It involves blood vessel disorders of the brain that restrict the flow of blood to certain areas of the brain or that cause an increased risk of bleeding inside the brain tissue.  These disorders include arteriovenous malformations, carotid stenosis, cerebral aneurysms, stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA).

The AHN Neuroscience Institute is a world-class leader in treating these conditions using the most advanced therapies and innovative procedures available anywhere. Our expert neurologists, neurosurgeons and interventional radiologists work together to coordinate your personalized treatment plan that vastly improves your chances of a full recovery and limits neurological deficit.

With our exceptional advances in stroke medicine, we are able to treat patients more effectively than ever. As a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the American Heart Association’s Joint Commission, our hospitals consistently provide proven medical therapy to stroke patients so they experience exceptional recoveries. And also, with telemedicine capabilities, our stroke neurologists are a few minutes away from providing immediate assessments and treatment plans.
