The Jaffe Stroke Center
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the US, and is a sudden and potentially devastating medical emergency. As in any medical emergency, it is critically important where a stroke patient receives care. That's why more patients visit Maimonides than other medical centers in the region. The Jaffe Stroke Center at Maimonides is in the top 5 percent of stroke centers in the nation and recognized for five consecutive years with the Get With the Guidelines – Stroke Gold Plus and Target Stroke “Elite Plus” honor roll by the American Stroke Association.
The advance of diagnostic capabilities has paralleled and often enabled treatment of neurological disorders previously considered untreatable. At Maimonides we use the most advanced technology, and our highly trained neurosurgery team provides surgical treatment for vascular, tumorous and degenerative lesions of the brain, skull base and spine.
Interventional neuroradiology is a minimally invasive approach to vascular diseases (aneurysms, vascular malformations, and tumors of the brain, spine, head and neck) that in the past would have required surgery. While traditional vascular neurosurgery requires cutting through skin, brain, bone and muscle to reach the site, we use 3-D X-ray imaging to guide us as we insert a tiny tube into the leg artery and address the clogged blood vessel. In case of stroke, the revolutionary MERCI Retriever system, can remove the clot entirely, reversing or reducing patient symptoms even eight hours after the onset of a stroke.
