Our Stroke Team

Our physicians work with patients to develop a comprehensive approach to managing stroke or other cerebrovascular conditions. Because recurrent strokes can happen, prevention is a significant aspect of the stroke recovery process. Our physicians are experts in stroke therapy and stroke rehabilitation.

UT Southwestern Stroke Team

The expertise of UT Southwestern Medical Center’s neurosurgeons 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 use advanced surgical and imaging techniques against once-untreatable cerebral diseases. Detecting these conditions earlier means we can stop – and sometimes reverse – their debilitating effects.
