Conditions Treated

  • Intracerebral Hemorrhage

    Intracerebral hemorrhage is when a blood vessel in the brain bursts and blood leaks into the brain, causing extra pressure that can damage brain cells. High blood pressure is the most common cause, but intracerebral hemorrhage can also result from trauma, infection, tumors or blood vessel abnormalities (e.g., arteriovenous malformation).
  • A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain stops due to a clot, causing brain cells to stop receiving oxygen. There are several types of stroke and stroke-related conditions: ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA). 
  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    Subarachnoid hemorrhage is bleeding in the area between the brain and the tissues surrounding the brain. (This area is called the subarachnoid space.) Most of these hemorrhages are caused by brain aneurysms. The main symptom is a sudden, severe headache.
