Our neurosurgeons use high-magnification microscopes and high-resolution imaging to remove AVMs and repair fistulas. This minimizes damage to surrounding areas and neurological structures within the brain and spine.
Emergency Diagnosis and Response
Many cerebrovascular diseases aren’t diagnosed until after a serious complication occurs. Our team is the region's leading resource for brain health emergencies, including stroke. Speed of treatment is critical for recovery, and our policies and processes for stroke care have been recognized by The Joint Commission.
Advanced Training and Experience
Our highly specialized physicians and surgeons have completed additional years of training for AVM treatment and are experts in their fields. Blood-flow disorders in the brain can be difficult to diagnose, but our specialists have the advantage of doing so regularly.
Less Invasive Therapies
We are experts in minimally invasive techniques that repair veins and arteries, reduce brain bleeding, and restore healthy blood flow. These options have less risk than traditional open surgery and are much better tolerated.
Leading Referral Center
People with AVMs and similar issues are referred to Duke from far and wide to confirm a diagnosis, consult on complex cases, and care for patients who have been turned away elsewhere.
A Team Approach
Our medical team includes specially trained radiologists who capture and interpret images of blood vessels in your brain, neurosurgeons who regularly perform procedures to reduce or eliminate cerebrovascular disturbances, and other highly trained specialists. We work together to create the treatment plan that's best for you.
Diagnostic and Imaging Expertise
We use the latest diagnostic and imaging technologies quickly and effectively. These tools enhance our ability to review your medical situation and present the safest and best treatment options.
