Patients treated for stroke and cerebrovascular disorders at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital benefit from one of the most experienced teams of physicians, advanced technologies for diagnosis and treatment, and round-the-clock neurocritical care. Rehabilitation is initiated early in each patient's care to enhance recovery. Our physicians, nurses, and therapists work together to provide integrated and individualized care according to each patient's specific needs.

NewYork-Presbyterian's neurology and neurosurgery departments consistently rank among the top five in the country, according to U.S. News and World Report. We are dedicated to providing the best treatment and achieving high outcomes for patients with cerebrovascular disorders, including:

NewYork-Presbyterian treats one of the highest volumes of stroke patients (nearly 2,000 annually) and cerebrovascular disease patients in the world, and the highest in New York City. Our teams include specialty-trained vascular neurologists, neurocritical care specialists, and cerebrovascular surgeons. Research has shown that patients treated at high-volume centers with specialty trained physicians have the best survival and recovery rates.

Critically ill patients benefit from our Neurological Intensive Care Units (Neuro-ICUs) at both NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. These Neuro-ICUs feature specially trained medical staff (including doctors who are board-certified specifically in neurocritical care), 24/7 surveillance, sophisticated monitoring techniques, and specialized medical and surgical treatments focused on improving the outcomes of patients with neurological disorders.

NewYork-Presbyterian's multidisciplinary rehabilitation team includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and physicians who are specially trained in neurological rehabilitation. Our rehabilitation program is cited by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best in the country.
