UT Southwestern Medical Center is one of the nation’s top stroke treatment facilities, treating more aneurysm cases than any other facility. Neurologists and neurosurgeons throughout Texas and the five-state area refer their most complex cases to UT Southwestern for the treatment of serious stroke, threatened stroke, and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs).
Our stroke specialists pioneered the use of advanced aneurysm treatments that have become standards in treating patients who have experienced a stroke as well as developed many of the clot-dissolving drugs in use today.
In addition, state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and treatment facilities enable our neurosurgeons, neurologists, and neuroradiologists to treat all forms of stroke and blood vessel disease affecting the brain and spinal cord.
In addition to treating patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, we also treat patients with the following conditions:
Our neurosurgeons’ expertise attracts patients from around the world. UT Southwestern pioneered the use of advanced aneurysm treatments that have become standards in treating patients who have experienced a stroke.
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.
That’s why we treat 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.
Our physicians, faculty, and other experts meet bimonthly to discuss the latest research findings on stroke diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. A weekly cerebrovascular conference is also held in conjunction with the Department of Neurological Surgery to discuss new diagnostic techniques and treatment options for patients with complicated neurovascular disease.
