UT Southwestern Medical Center is one of the nation’s top stroke treatment facilities, treating more aneurysm cases than any other facility. Our world-renowned team of neurosurgeons uses advanced surgical and imaging techniques against once-untreatable cerebral diseases. Detecting these conditions earlier means we can stop – and sometimes reverse – their debilitating effects.
Our neurologists work side-by-side with experts from multiple disciplines to deliver an unsurpassed level of care."Mark Goldberg, M.D.

Our stroke specialists pioneered the development of some of the most advanced and effective brain aneurysm procedures in use today. For example, in 1989, UT Southwestern researchers refined a fast-acting drug called tissue plasminogen activator, or tPA, which can rapidly dissolve blood clots in patients with ischemic stroke, greatly reducing the risk of death or severe disability.
In addition, state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and treatment facilities enable our neurologists, neuroradiologists, and neurosurgeons to treat all forms of stroke and blood vessel disease affecting the brain and spinal cord.
That’s why UT Southwestern treats more brain aneurysms than any other medical center in the Southwest and why U.S. News & World Report ranks us as one of the top 20 medical centers in the nation in neurosurgery and neurology.
