Peter O'Donnell Jr. Brain Institute
UT Southwestern Medical Center’s team of specialists offers innovative, patient-centered care for all types of cerebrovascular disorders, from the common to the complex and rare.
As a regional referral center for cerebrovascular disorders and an Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center, we offer the highest level of care available. Our long history of cerebrovascular expertise has allowed us to introduce new treatments to patients from across the country through innovative research and groundbreaking techniques.
Expert Care for Common and Rare Diseases
Cerebrovascular disorders are diseases and malformations that affect the blood vessels of the neck, spinal cord, and brain, such as:
- Brain aneurysms
- Brain vascular malformations
- Moyamoya disease
- Chiari malformations
- Carotid atherosclerotic disease (carotid artery disease)
- Carotid cavernous fistulas
- Intracranial stenosis
- Cranial and spine dural fistulas
UT Southwestern is a regional referral center for cerebrovascular problems, helping patients from all parts of Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas, and beyond.
We offer specialized expertise in diagnosing and treating these diseases at all stages, whether a patient needs immediate neurosurgical care or long-term monitoring of his or her condition.
Our Services for Cerebrovascular Disorders
UT Southwestern’s team brings together neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, neurointensivists, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, and other health care professionals – all working together to achieve the best possible results for patients.
Our experts in neuroimaging use the latest technology available, providing prompt evaluations that help determine whether a patient needs surgical care or if it’s safe to monitor the condition without immediate intervention.
Neurosurgeons are at the forefront of treatments for cerebrovascular disorders, from minimally invasive techniques to bypass surgery. For patients who have suffered a stroke, the Robert D. Rogers Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center offers the highest level of stroke care available.
The neuro ICU at UT Southwestern’s Zale Lipshy University Hospital has the largest number of neurointensive care specialists in North Texas. It’s staffed by a team of physicians, nurses, patient care technicians, respiratory therapists, and ancillary staff who together provide specialized care to manage all aspects of life-threatening cerebrovascular disorders.
Our patients also benefit from ongoing clinical trials, which provide patients with access to leading-edge research and therapeutic advances, often before they’re available at other hospitals.
