Clinical Services

At Mount Sinai, we are pioneering new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of stroke that can significantly improve your chances for an optimal recovery.  Our health care team includes vascular neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, emergency medicine and rehabilitation specialists, nutritionists, social workers and case managers, and clinical nursing staff.

Advances in Care

We provide several treatments to treat strokes within just a few hours of the onset of acute stroke symptoms. These include: 

  • Intravenous clot-busting medications for acute stroke
  • Delivery of clot-busting medications directly to the affected cerebral vessel using neuroendovascular techniques
  • Mechanical extraction of the blood clot that is occluding the cerebral vessel
  • Carotid endarterectomy and carotid and intracranial stenting for treatment of carotid and cerebral artery stenosis
  • A specialized neurocritical care unit with state-of-the-art monitoring for post-procedure care
  • Ongoing evaluation and management of stroke patients in a dedicated, state-of-the art acute stroke unit
