Neurovascular Center

The Neurovascular team is comprised of the highest caliber neurosurgeons, vascular neurologists and neuroradiologists – all with advanced fellowship training, experience and expertise in these sophisticated techniques. Our physicians use the most highly-developed procedures to treat patients of all ages who are suffering from a broad spectrum of often complex and life-threatening conditions such as strokes, aneurysms and vascular malformations.† Montefiore is the only medical center with the prestigious Comprehensive Stroke Center designation in the Bronx and Westchester. It is one of only three medical centers in the New York metropolitan area to offer such state-of-the-art services for complex cases.

As part of our Department of Neurosurgery, which is itself among the most respected and renowned in the nation, the Neurovascular Program offers the complete array of contemporary surgical solutions, including endovascular, open and hybrid, all in one setting. When necessary, these services are available at a moment's notice.
