Our highly-trained team at Valley Health’s Neuroscience Center has the extensive expertise needed to effectively diagnose and treat patients with stroke and other vascular neurological conditions. This includes advanced neuroimaging and sophisticated minimally invasive technology available in a state-of-the-art bi-plane angiography suite. At Winchester Medical Center, the collaboration of our skilled neurologists, neurosurgeons and interventional neurologist provides patients with excellent care. Comprehensive post treatment rehabilitation programs further recovery and help patients return to the highest possible level of function.
The goal of the interventional neurology program at Valley Health is to partner with referring physicians in the region to deliver efficient, effective and personalized care to patients who have a stroke or other neurovascular disorders. Short hospital stays, decreased recovery time, and reduced risk of complication are among the benefits of endovascular surgical neuroradiology and minimally invasive neurointerventional procedures.
