Recognized as one of the world's leading centers for the management of cerebral vascular disease, the UCLA Stroke Center treats simple and complex vascular disorders by incorporating recent developments in emergency medicine, stroke neurology, microneurosurgery, interventional neuroradiology, stereotactic radiology, neurointensive care, neuroanesthesiology, and rehabilitation neurology. Care is coordinated from the moment of first contact, in the emergency department or outpatient clinics, through acute treatment and neurological rehabilitation. The UCLA Stroke Center provides comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic care of patients with disorders of blood vessels of the brain and spinal cord, including: ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack, carotid stenosis, cerebral hemorrhage, aneurysms/subarachnoid hemorrhage, vascular malformations of the brain, and spinal vascular malformations. The UCLA Stroke Center opened one of the nation's first dedicated inpatient stroke units which offers state-of-the-art management of patients with brain infarction, brain hemorrhage and other cerebral vascular diseases. Other on-site facilities include a neurological intensive care unit, neurosurgical operating rooms, neuro-endovascular therapy suites, a clinical cerebral blood flow laboratory, stereotactic radiology rooms and an outpatient clinic. The center also has a Mobile Stroke Unit equipped with a mobile CT scanner, lab tests, and telehealth connection to a hospital and emergency medications. There is also a TeleStroke Program where direct, immediate video consultations are offered to emergency departments at community hospitals.
