Duke’s highly skilled neurologists, critical care specialists, vascular surgeons, neurosurgeons, and radiologists work together to treat cerebrovascular diseases, which affect blood flow in the brain. Whether the issue is urgent or stable, we aim to restore normal blood flow as quickly as possible after stenosis (narrowing of a blood vessel), ischemia (reduced blood flow), or a clot, blockage, or rupture. We ensure prompt diagnosis and treatment by combining the latest imaging tools with guideline-based care and advanced surgical techniques.
