Stroke & Cerebrovascular Conditions


Stroke and cerebrovascular conditions are related to the brain and its blood vessels.  They include conditions like stroke, aneurysm and hemorrhage. While some of these conditions have mild side effects, others can cause serious problems. The good news is that timely intervention and treatment can reduce many of the risks associated with stroke and other cerebrovascular conditions.

Stroke & Cerebrovascular Conditions


A brain aneurysm is a blister on a blood vessel in your brain. If not treated quickly, it can lead to brain hemorrhage. Learn more about the different types of aneurysms we treat:

Ruptured Aneurysm

Unruptured Aneurysm


Arteriovenous Malformation

Although many arteriovenous malformations have no symptoms, others can cause intense pain, bleeding, or lead to other serious medical problems.


Carotid Disease and Dissection

Carotid artery dissection is a separation of the layers of the artery wall that lead to the brain. It’s the most common cause of stroke in young adults.


Cavernous Malformation

Cavernous malformations are blood vessels in the brain and spinal cord that develop abnormally and can burst without warning.

Dural Arteriovenous Fistula

Also known as DAVF, dural arteriovenous fistula happens when an abnormal connection is formed between an artery in the brain and a vein that carries blood from this artery to the heart. Our endovascular experts will assess your fistula to determine the most effective and least invasive form of treatment for you.


Vascular Inflammation

If left untreated, inflammation in the vascular can lead to thrombosis and stroke. We offer cutting-edge care for conditions related to vascular inflammation, including:

Giant Cell Arteritis



Cerebral Venous Thrombosis

Cerebral venous thrombosis refers to the blockage of veins that deliver blood to the brain. In some conditions, the blockage is caused by a blood clot. In others, it happens when veins or arteries in the brain begin to narrow, reducing blood flow and causing a stroke or mini-stroke. Learn more conditions related to cerebral venous thrombosis, including:


Traumatic Cerebrovascular

Intracranial hemorrhage can lead to increases in intracranial pressure and brain herniation, which can be fatal. Learn more about symptoms and treatments for:

Epidural Hematoma

Traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
