neurovascular disorders

 

 

At Krembil, we have an interdisciplinary team comprised of stroke neurologists, cerebrovascular surgeons and interventional neuroradiologists taking a comprehensive approach to diagnosing, treating some of the most complex neurovascular conditions.

In Canada, stroke is the third leading cause of death, and leaves thousands more with life-changing disabilities. Here, at Toronto Western Hospital we have two state of the art operating rooms that allow our specialists who do surgery on the brain to have some of the best outcomes in removing artery blocking brain clots that cause ischemic strokes, relieving pressure in brain-bleeding hemorrhagic strokes, and other brain-related interventions. We have achieved "Stroke Distinction" from Accreditation Canada for demonstrating national leadership, clinical excellence and a commitment to continuing to improve the level of care for stroke patients.
