Yale Vascular Neurology evaluates, treats and studies
diseases which affect the structure and function of the blood vessels
supplying the brain. This practice serves as the primary referral center
for acute stroke management and secondary prevention throughout
Connecticut. The acute stroke team is available around the clock and is
comprised of a resident team along with four attending neurologists and
one emergency room physician.
The vascular neurologists work with a multidisciplinary team within the Yale Neurovascular Institute to offer cutting-edge interventional treatments aided by state-of-the-art imaging. Yale conducts many clinical trials sponsored by the National Institute of Health and industry related to the treatment and prevention of stroke.
Yale is the only institution in Connecticut to offer acute vascular neurology consultations through the Yale-New Haven TeleStroke Network. The primary mission of the Yale-New Haven Stroke Center is to provide the highest quality, effective and equitable care to all stroke patients admitted to Yale-New Haven Hospital and outpatients referred from the greater New England region.
Vascular Neurologists provide outpatient consultations in a multidisciplinary setting at either the Vascular Specialties, Yale Physicians' Building or at the VA West Haven for Veterans. Consultative services are also provided at Gaylord Hospital, the major rehabilitation hospital in Connecticut.
