Stroke & Aneurysm Care
Every second counts when it comes to treating strokes and aneurysms. That’s why our fellowship-trained, board-certified neuro specialists work fast to provide advanced treatments that aim to prevent death and disability.
Advanced Treatments from Neuro Experts
As the leading provider of stroke and aneurysm services in Georgia, our neuro team performs one of the highest numbers of thrombectomy and aneurysm treatments in the country. Across our network of Joint Commission Stroke certified hospitals, we offer advanced treatments including complex surgery, minimally-invasive neuroendovascular procedures, tenecteplase (TNK) therapy, artificial intelligence (AI) enabled brain imaging and telestroke services.
Advanced Treatments, Technology & Support
These minimally-invasive catheterized blood vessel procedures can treat complex conditions without open brain surgery. When performing a thrombectomy, a skilled neurointerventionalist or cerebrovascular neurosurgeon guides a tiny catheter through a blood vessel in the patient’s leg to the blood clot in the brain. The goal is to remove the clot and restore blood flow to the brain to help prevent disability.
