Stroke and Vascular Neurology

The Stroke and Vascular Neurology Clinic, an integral component of the UCLA Stroke Center, provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment for patients with cerebrovascular disorders, including transient ischemic attacks, carotid artery stenosis, vertebrobasilar stenosis, cardioembolic stroke, lacunar stroke, cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral vascular malformations, stroke in the young, cerebral vasculitides, hypercoagulable states, and related conditions. Through the UCLA Stroke Center, appropriate patients receive collaborative, multidisciplinary care from vascular neurology, neurorehabilitation, vascular neurosurgery, vascular surgery, and interventional neuroradiology.

The stroke neurology experts at the UCLA Stroke Center give Emergency Departments at community hospitals the opportunity for direct, immediate video consultation. Through the UCLA Telestroke Program, UCLA neurologists are available to provide collaborative care recommendations to emergency physicians on patients with acute stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), and stroke-like conditions. The UCLA team works in collaboration with local neurologists, covering time periods when local specialists are not available, up to 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
