Our Team

The Cerebrovascular team brings together experts from several specialty areas including neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology and neurocritical care.

Our collaborative approach involves physicians, nurses and allied health professionals, all of whom are specifically trained in neuroscience and the requirements of patients affected by stroke, aneurysm, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), moyamoya and other conditions. These highly specialized experts deliver comprehensive--and compassionate--care based on individual needs and informed by the latest research.
