Diagnosing And Treating Cerebral Aneurysms Early And Effectively
A cerebral aneurysm - a bulge in the wall of a brain artery - can be life-threatening if it ruptures and bleeding occurs in the brain. A ruptured aneurysm can cause a stroke. If you or a loved one has a brain aneurysm, NewYork-Presbyterian has one of the most experienced teams of neurosurgeons, neurologists, neurocritical care specialists, and neuroradiologists available. Our hospital is a recognized leader in brain aneurysm treatment and research.
- Exceptional Experience: Our hospital is the busiest center in the Tri-State area for the repair of brain aneurysms. The more experience a team has, the better the chance of a successful recovery.
- Nationally Ranked: Our neurology and neurosurgery departments consistently rank among the top five in the country, according to U.S. News and World Report.
- A Leading Center for Patient Transfers: Many patients are transferred from other hospitals to our centers because we provide advanced care for the diagnosis and treatment of brain aneurysms that is not available in many other hospitals.

Our Neuro-ICUs are among the few in the world with dedicated scanners within each unit, enabling us to perform immediate imaging of the brain.
- Early Rehabilitation: We integrate rehabilitation as early as possible into the care of our patients who need it, using state-of-the-art treatments not widely available at other centers in the New York metropolitan area.
