New York Community Hospital maintains a close clinical affiliation with neurosurgeons at the Maimonides Hospital, who are available 24/7 to receive urgent referrals for evaluation and emergency surgery when indicated.
Patients with strokes caused by clots within cerebral vessels can now be managed by new endovascular techniques that remove the clots and restore patients to normal function.
Success when treating such conditions, however, requires rapid assessment and highly coordinated transfer in order to achieve our excellent outcomes.
