Henry Ford’s Cerebrovascular Center is a leading center for diagnosing, treating and researching neurological conditions. We offer a team approach that brings together experts from many specialty areas.
Our physicians are national leaders in the treatment of AVM (arteriovenous malformation), aneurysm, traumatic brain injury (TBI), carotid disease, stroke and other neurological issues.
With experience encompassing more than 3,000 surgical and nearly 1,000 endovascular-treated cases for cerebral aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations, the Cerebrovascular Center is one of the most advanced in Michigan.
The Henry Ford Cerebrovascular Center: why choose us
From across Michigan, the Midwest and the U.S., patients choose Henry Ford for knowledgeable diagnosis, advanced treatments and access to the latest clinical trials. We offer:
- A deep bench of experts: With a depth of expertise unmatched in the area, Henry Ford offers teams of neurosurgical and endovascular specialists who provide comprehensive services. For example, where some facilities may not even have one stroke neurologist, Henry Ford has a half-dozen stroke neurologists on staff.
- Excellence through collaboration: We offer patients unparalleled breadth and depth of expertise, in a collaborative environment. Patients benefit from a consensus approach to treatment, drawing on the viewpoints of neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, radiation surgeons, radiation oncologists and endovascular specialists.
- Groundbreaking treatments: Henry Ford’s neurosurgeons were the first in Michigan to offer intraoperative MRI for precise brain surgeries. When endovascular coiling to treat aneurysms received FDA approval, we were trained and ready to begin using the technique within weeks – the first in Michigan to do so.
- State-of-the-art facility: Among other capabilities, Henry Ford’s surgical and endovascular facilities include the only intraoperative MRI capability in the state of Michigan, as well as advanced bi-plane surgical suites that provide 3D imaging of blood vessels and tissues; CTA/CT perfusion imaging capability to assess cerebral blood flow; portable CT scanners; and intraoperative video angiography.
- Immediate, patient-centered care: We see patients with AVMs and aneurysms within 24 hours. Many of our patients return for follow-up care for many years.
