Patient Information

What to Expect

Whatever the crisis, our Division of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease specialists create a continuum of care—from the moment a patient arrives—to minimize damage and give you the best chance of survival and recovery of quality of life and function. We are global leaders in the treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and aneurysms.

After a devastating cerebrovascular event, outcome may totally depend on the resources, monitoring, and action taken in the first 24 to 72 hours. That is why many families request transfer to our NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and its Neurological Intensive Care Units (Neuro-ICU), as the only multi-disciplinary, academic, neurocritical care facility in the greater New York area. We are national leaders in research devoted to developing advanced treatments for life-threatening neurological diseases, and offer the most sophisticated diagnostic technologies in neuroscience.
