Treatment for Cerebrovascular Disease & Stroke
Cerebrovascular disease is a leading cause of disability and death globally, which is why Carle is a dedicated to providing exceptional and compassionate treatment. As a referral center for central Illinois, we have the technology, expertise and treatment options needed to best serve our patients. Cerebrovascular illnesses include ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, both of which require a comprehensive treatment team with highly specialized expertise encompassing prevention, acute treatment and management, as well as neurocritical care, and rehabilitation.
At Carle, our neurologists and neurosurgeons help patients coping with illnesses spanning the entire spectrum of the cerebrovascular disease, including TIA/stroke, carotid and intracranial stenosis, brain aneurysm and more.
We believe world-class cerebrovascular care starts with a team of sincere and compassionate providers and is delivered thorugh state-of-the-art technologies. In addition to the standard intravenous administration of thrombolytics (TPA), Carle provides neuro-endovascular (advanced catheter treatments rendered through a groin needle-stick) and neurosurgical therapies, as well as neurocritical care and neuro-rehabilitation, to give our patients the best chance we can at going home.
Our cerebrovascular program has consistently received annual Healthgrades Awards in neurosciences, stroke care, and neurosurgery; many of our physicians (neurologists and neurosurgeons) have been named Best Doctors in America. Our neurologists and neurosurgeons collaborate with the University of Illinois Beckman Institute, to stay on the cutting edge and pioneer new techniques and technologies.
