Brain Arteriovenous Malformations (AVMs): tangles of abnormally formed cerebral blood vessels that can lead to bleeding in the brain
Carotid & Vertebral Artery Stenosis: the buildup of plaque in the arteries that supply the brain with blood
Carotid Artery Occlusion: a complete blockage in the carotid artery
Cavernous Malformations: tightly packed clusters of abnormal blood vessels
Dural Arteriovenous Fistulas: unusual connections between arteries and veins within the outermost layer of the brain
Large Vessel Occlusions: ischemic strokes caused by a blockage in a major artery in the brain
Moyamoya Disease: the narrowing of carotid arteries, which increases the risk of stroke
Spinal Vascular Malformations: unusual connections between arteries and veins within the spinal cord
Stroke: brain damage caused by the interruption of blood flow to the brain due to a blockage (ischemic stroke) or bursting (hemorrhagic stroke) of a blood vessel
Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA): a temporary blockage of blood flow to the brain that could indicate a higher risk of stroke; also known as “mini stroke”
Providing the Highest Level of Cerebrovascular Care
Our DNV-certified Comprehensive Stroke Centers at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center and The Woodlands Hospital have the capability to quickly intervene to stop the progression of stroke damage and prevent permanent impairment through the use of thrombolytic medications and minimally invasive techniques.
Our teams are equipped to treat even the most complex stroke cases. We are committed to delivering safe, high-quality stroke care based on evidence-based protocols and a multidisciplinary approach for the treatment, management, and rehabilitation of stroke patients—and we are with you every step of the way.
Most of us have heard about the billion-dollar “brain games” industry that provides mental challenges to improve cognitive ability. But does this brain training really work? Recent studies have shown an improvement in different cognitive domains afte
