The Johns Hopkins Cerebrovascular team seeks to serve both the emergent/urgent patient who has suffered stroke or cerebral hemorrhage as well as the elective patient who is stable, but requires diagnosis and treatment for a condition like a cerebral aneurysm. Whether a patient has a blood vessel malfunction or abnormality that can occur in the brain, spinal cord and neck that requires neurosurgical care, or has suffered a stroke and needs the care of a neurologist, our team is uniquely positioned to help.
The progress of cerebrovascular care at Johns Hopkins is real. Our team routinely pushes the confines of the diseases and conditions we treat and challenge ourselves to improve treatment and care by understanding the potential for current and evolving therapies and techniques. We believe in being at the forefront of surgical and neurological techniques.
The success of the Cerebrovascular Center at Johns Hopkins has been realized through outstanding care and compliance with consensus-based national standards with emphasis on the importance of educating healthcare workers and the public about the recognition, prevention and treatment of this type of disorder. We have two Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) certified Primary Stroke Centers – one at our main campus in downtown Baltimore and one at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center – which demonstrates our commitment to achieving better outcomes for our patients.
