The Penn Neurovascular Center is a nationally recognized primary referral center for the treatment of neurovascular disorders. A specialized team of neurosurgeons, neurologists, diagnostic and interventional neuroradiologists, neurointensivists and neuroanesthesiologists provides highly specialized care from diagnosis to treatment to outpatient consultations.

Penn's neurovascular specialists perform a high volume of procedures each year involving the most complex neurological disorders. Our surgeons have access to the latest technologies; perform the most advanced techniques, and collaborate on cutting-edge research that enables Penn to give patients the best care possible. Our specialists meet regularly to discuss each patient’s case and to develop a treatment plan based on individual needs. Whenever possible, our surgeons choose minimally-invasive surgery. However, our dual-trained endovascular surgeons will perform open surgery when other methods are not possible.

Penn Neurovascular Center is a high volume referral center for a wide variety of vascular disorders. We work closely with referring physicians and provide a rapid and thorough evaluation of all patients referred with neurovascular disorders.
