To us, it really is brain surgery.

As the third-largest volume Stroke Center in New York State, we know that providing advanced care in our community is important.

The MVHS’s Wynn Hospital is the area’s only Comprehensive Stroke Center and has treated thousands of patients with a stroke-diagnosis. Our board-certified neuroendovascular team, combined with our Artis Zee bi-plane fluoroscopic imaging system, brings MVHS access to the most advanced neuroendovascular and comprehensive stroke care in our region.

In addition to emergency ischemic stroke rescue procedures, the two interventional neurologists treat conditions such as Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), brain aneurysms, carotid and intracranial vascular stenosis, brain and spine vascular malformations, along with other vascular conditions of the brain and spine.
