Center for Cerebrovascular & Endovascular Neurosurgery
Pioneers in brain care
The Center for Cerebrovascular and Neuroendovascular Surgery at North Shore University Hospital is a leading brain aneurysm center serving the communities of Long Island. Since its opening in 2006, the center has remained a hub for aneurysm care, taking aneurysm and cerebrovascular patients from both Northwell Health hospitals and other local hospitals outside the health system.
Why choose us?
At The Center for Cerebrovascular and Neuroendovascular Surgery, we have 24/7 capability to accept patient transfers from surrounding hospitals. We provide leading-edge imaging services, including CT angiography and 3D angiography, to diagnose patients in their most vulnerable moments.
Once a diagnosis is made, we’re equipped to offer a variety of neuro-interventional radiology and neurosurgery services, including:
- Aneurysm coiling
- Stent placement
- Arteriovenous malformation embolization
- Micro-neurosurgical aneurysm clipping
- Cerebral bypass
- Cerebrospinal fluid stunting
Each month, our highly experienced nurse practitioners and social workers hold our Circle of Friends support group, providing education, resources and emotional support to brain aneurysm patients and their families.
For the last 10 years, in partnership with the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, we’ve helped bring Long Island the Annual Brain Aneurysm Walk—which has raised over $700,000 dedicated to support essential research focused on brain aneurysms.
Comprehensive Stroke Center
North Shore University Hospital was the first hospital on Long Island, and one of four in New York state, to receive advanced certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center (CSC) in 2015. The hospital earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s heart check mark in recognition of its ability to receive and treat the most complex stroke cases.
To be eligible for advanced certification as a CSC, North Shore University Hospital demonstrated compliance with stroke-related standards as a primary stroke center and met additional requirements including:
- Having dedicated neuro-intensive care unit beds for complex stroke patients that provide 24/7 neurocritical care
- Using advanced imaging modalities
- Annually providing care to 20 or more patients with a diagnosis of subarachnoid hemorrhage; performing 15 or more endovascular coiling or surgical clipping procedures for aneurysm; and administering intravenous tPA, a clot-busting drug, to an average of 25 or more eligible patients
- Using a peer review process to evaluate and monitor the care provided to patients with ischemic stroke and subarachnoid hemorrhage
- Participating in stroke research
