Center for Cerebrovascular Disease
The University of Kentucky Department of Neurosurgery offers the most comprehensive approach to interventions for stroke in the state of Kentucky. Whether treating carotid stenosis to prevent future strokes, rebuilding and bypasses severely altered cerebral vessels, or reopening cranial blood vessels to treat acute stroke, UK's neurosurgery team works closely with the other members of the UK Stroke Center to evaluate and treat patients with this terrible disease.
