Aurora BayCare offers advanced treatment options for people with neurovascular disorders. If you have a brain aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation (AVM), or other neurovascular disorder, you can get expert care here, close to home.
Neurovascular disease refers to conditions that affect the blood vessels and blood supply to the brain. The word is made up of two parts: “neuro,” which means the brain and nervous system, and “vascular” which refers to the veins and arteries.
Blood Flow to the Brain
If your brain isn’t getting enough blood, it could be due to several reasons: a narrowed blood vessel (called stenosis), blockage (embolism), clot formation (thrombosis), or a ruptured blood vessel (hemorrhage).
No matter what the reason, when your brain doesn’t get enough oxygen, you can lose brain cells. The results may be devastating. Long term damage can result in physical or mental disabilities.
Whatever your condition, we’re here to help with breakthrough treatments. Aurora BayCare is home to the area’s leading experts in diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation for neurovascular diseases.
