Neurology Clinic - Stroke
The Neurology Clinic – Stroke at UT Southwestern Medical Center is one of the nation’s top stroke treatment facilities, treating more aneurysm cases than any other facility.
Who We Are
Our stroke specialists pioneered the development of some of the most advanced and effective brain aneurysm procedures in use today.
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.
Our 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.
The expertise of our neurosurgeons attracts patients from around the world.
What We Treat
Other conditions our specialists treat include:
- Arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
- Hemifacial spasm
- Moyamoya disease
- Strokes due to hypercoagulable states and genetic disorders
- Trigeminal neuralgia
