Dr. E. Sander Connolly Jr. serves as the Surgical Director of the Neuro-Intensive Care Unit, caring for patients suffering from the acute effects of both hemorrhagic as well as ischemic stroke. Working as part of an extremely experienced and world-renowned team of critical care and stroke neurologists, as well as interventional radiologists, endovascular neurosurgeons, neuroanesthesiologists, and specialized nurse practitioners, he provides highly personalized, state-of-the-art care for patients with brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and spontaneous hemorrhages, as well as for those patients with carotid stenosis, Moyamoya disease, and cerebral ischemia due to atherosclerosis and other vasculopathies. In addition, he serves as Director of the Cerebrovascular Research Laboratory, which continues to be at the forefront of biomedical science, bringing the latest discoveries to the operating room and the patient bedside to not only treat but also prevent stroke.
