Glendale Adventist Medical Center's Neuroscience Institute is one of the only hospitals in
Southern California to offer a wide range of advanced minimally
invasive procedures in cerebrovascular and endovascular
Cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery provide treatment for conditions affecting the blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients to the brain and spinal cord. Common conditions treated at GAMC include:
- A weak or thin spot in a blood vessel in the brain (cerebral aneurysm)
- Narrowing of the carotid artery (carotid stenosis)
- Narrowing of arteries in the brain (intracranial stenosis)
- Stroke, or damage to the brain from interruption of blood supply
- Abnormally formed blood vessels in the brain or spinal cord that resemble a mulberry (cavernous malformations)
- Abnormal connections between arteries and veins in the spinal column (spinal vascular malformations)
- Build-up of plaque leading to narrowing of the arteries in the brain (intracranial atherosclerotic disease)
- Bleeding between the membranes of the brain (subarachnoid hemorrhage)
- Blood clots in the sinuses that drain blood from the brain (venous sinus thrombosis)
- Brain tumors, including malignant or benign tumors
Because cerebrovascular and endovascular surgical techniques are minimally invasive, requiring only a small incision, patients experience faster recovery times, less risk of complications and better outcomes than with open surgery.
The GAMC cerebrovascular and endovascular medical team strives to
save brain function and minimize risk for people who are
experiencing life-threatening conditions through timely
intervention using the latest proven technologies.
