Our Approach

We provide emergency treatments for such conditions as acute stroke and brain bleeds, where immediate interventions are required, but also elective treatments for aneurysms and other vascular lesions that are discovered incidentally. A dedicated neurovascular surgeon is on-call and ready to mobilize a team at a moment’s notice – 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. We streamline access to emergency neurovascular care for referring physicians, guaranteeing you will receive the timeliest and best care anywhere. Help is only a phone call away.

The Y Access Line allows for the quick and easy transfer of patients to Yale New Haven Hospital. In collaboration with the Stroke Center, you benefit from the Stroke Telemedicine Program, so that life-saving therapies for acute stroke can be initiated at a referring hospital prior to transfer to Yale New Haven Hospital. This saves precious time before your treatments are initiated.

Plus, we offer SkyHealth, an emergency patient transport helicopter, staffed by highly skilled medical professionals, including a critical-care flight nurse and a trained paramedic. Life-saving interventions can now be delivered en route, affording you the best possible outcomes.

Our state-of-the-art, VISIUS Surgical Theater is equipped with a powerful MRI that provides highly detailed images and an integrated, bi-plane X-ray angiography system that allows our experts to better visualize arteries and vessels. The ability to receive pre-operative diagnostic imaging, open micro-surgery, percutaneous, catheter-based endovascular treatments and post-operative checks all in the same room while you are lying on the same table is unique in the tri-state area and a model system in North America and the world. This advanced technology makes it possible to tackle the most complex neurovascular conditions with the highest degree of safety.
