Our Center of Excellence

We appreciate that you have options for your care, and value the opportunity to be your partner in health. Here are a few facts about the Pacific Stroke and Aneurysm Center:

Minimally invasive, personalized treatment: For patients who require treatment for stroke, aneurysms or vascular malformations, our comprehensive team of neurosurgeons, stroke neurologists and interventional radiologists offer all forms of advanced therapy, including minimally invasive endovascular treatments, microvascular neurosurgery, and noninvasive adjuvant therapies. Endovascular treatment and micro-vascular neurosurgery allows our surgeons to safely approach even the most difficult regions of the brain with the smallest possible incisions. Endovascular techniques use fine catheters threaded through blood vessels in the lower body to reach blockages in the brain. Microvascular approaches involve minimally invasive neurosurgery to repair damage caused by stroke, aneurysms or vascular malformations. Our unique expertise includes extracranial-to-intracranial bypasses, complex vascular malformation microsurgery, deep cavernous malformations and uncoilable complex aneurysm surgery. This broad expertise and multidisciplinary approach allows our team to provide optimal treatment for each individual patient.
