The Cerebrovascular Diseases/Stroke Division works within the UC Comprehensive Stroke Center through the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute. Our team of faculty physicians are internationally renowned specialists who play a leading role in providing acute stroke care and conducting basic and clinical research.
Through the UC Stroke Team and the surgical/interventional neurovascular program, UC specialists offer a comprehensive approach for stroke prevention and the treatment of transient ischemic attack (TIA), ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, intracranial aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation and other cerebrovascular conditions.
All physician members of the division attend on the neurology service at University of Cincinnati Medical Center and take acute stroke call as part of the UC Stroke Team.
Faculty members provide didactic lectures for all levels of trainees. Medical students, residents, and fellows have ample opportunities to participate in the care of patients with cerebrovascular disease during inpatient neurology rotations and in the outpatient clinic.
A dedicated rotation with the UC Stroke Team, providing acute stroke care throughout the Greater Cincinnati area, with a focus upon reperfusion therapy for ischemic stroke, is available to medical students and residents.
The division offers broad expertise in cerebrovascular diseases, including clinical care and research. Our expertise includes:
Our cerebrovascular research program has received funding from the National Institute of Neurologic Diseases and Stroke (NINDS) since the mid-1980s, with extensive federal funding for both basic and clinical research. Our program was the first to test and explore the use of the tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), the only current approved medical therapy for acute ischemic stroke.
Examples of other continued leadership include:
