Cerebrovascular diseases include many disorders of the brain’s blood vessels that impair cerebral circulation. The brain requires a significant portion of the body’s blood flow, and any reduction can result in stroke. Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and is the leading cause of adult disability. At Columbia Neurosurgery’s Cerebrovascular Center, our physicians and surgeons are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of cerebrovascular diseases (also known as cerebral vascular diseases or neurovascular diseases), and in the prevention and treatment of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke.
There are often several methods available to treat a cerebrovascular disorder, as well as a burgeoning array of new technologies. One important reason that Columbia has excellent outcomes treating patients with cerebrovascular diseases is our ability to navigate these options, taking into account each patient’s wishes and individual circumstances, making the right recommendation to treat each patient’s specific problem. Our expertise in the use of the latest surgical tools and technologies gives each patient the best chance to make a full recovery.
