Cerebrovascular disorders impact circulation to and inside the brain. When a blood vessel is blocked, ruptured or compromised, the brain no longer receives vital oxygen. As is the case with any neurological event, time-to-treatment is of the essence.
Houston Methodist’s leading neurologists are experts in the fast, accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment of all cerebrovascular conditions. When you or a loved one enters our care, our team’s sole aim is to rapidly restore proper blood flow and oxygen to the brain. After the patient is stable, our team of experts will develop a care plan tailored to condition specifics and unique health history.
Our patients benefit from our experience and a broad array of treatment techniques. We might use less invasive methods — such as radiosurgery or endovascular surgery — or recommend complex procedures like cranial microsurgery. Most importantly, we guide you every step of the way, from diagnosis through treatment, recovery and ongoing therapies.
Cerebrovascular conditions we treat may include:
- Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the head, neck and face
- Brain aneurysms
- Brain and spinal vascular malformations
- Carotid atherosclerotic disease
- Carotid cavernous fistulas
- Cavernous malformations of the brain and spinal cord
- Cranial and spinal dural fistulas
- Intracranial atherosclerotic disease
- Moyamoya disease
- TIA and stroke
- Vascular malformation
Expert Care for Cerebrovascular Conditions
How are cerebrovascular conditions diagnosed?
Our fellowship-trained doctors use the most advanced surgical, microsurgical and endovascular techniques available to diagnose the exact cause of your brain’s blood-flow disruption.
An example of one such diagnostic method is a minimally invasive technique used by Dr. Gavin Britz to remove a vascular lesion for further study. These methods ensure an accurate diagnosis and allow us to build a treatment plan around you.
Our comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment is designed to restore function and improve your quality of life.
What treatments are available?
Your care plan might include surgical techniques such as clipping, a common procedure to cut off a brain aneurysm’s blood supply, or a bypass surgery to reroute the affected blood flow. Your doctor will talk with you about the best treatment path and rehabilitation steps.
