Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke Program
Inpatient care is provided at the Neuroscience Unit at DHMC, which includes an eight-bed Neuro Special Care Unit. Our diagnostic capabilities include MRI and MRA, MR perfusion, conventional (digital subtraction) angiography, among other diagnostic tests. Our clinical and research activities include the closure of patent foramen ovale in cryptogenic stroke and carotid artery stenting.
We also provide educational materials for hospitalized patients and their families and develop a curriculum for medical students and house staff.
