Cerebral Angioplasty

This is often the treatment choice if you’ve had several small strokes that can’t be treated with medication. The surgeon inserts a small balloon into one of the blood vessels supplying the brain. The balloon enlarges the vessel and increases blood flow.

Treats These Conditions: -
  • Stroke

There are three types of stroke: -
  • Ischemic Stroke – This is caused by a blocked artery leading to the brain. The plaque that blocks these arteries can break open or rupture, causing a blood clot to form inside the artery and stopping blood flow to the brain.
  • Hemorrhagic Stroke – This is caused by an artery rupture in or near the brain.
  • Mini Stroke – Also called a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), this causes stroke-like symptoms when clots form and then break apart in arteries going to the brain. A mini-stroke is usually a warning sign that a major stroke is about to occur.

After you’ve had a stroke, you may need help at home, either for a short time or permanently. We can provide a wide range of services, helping you become as independent as possible. We can help with: -
  • Skilled nursing care
  • Physical therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Support groups


We offer several tests to diagnose stroke. Our experienced staff uses state-of-the-art equipment for all of these tests: -
  • Cerebral Angiography
  • CT (Computerized Tomography) Angiogram
  • Single Photon Emission Computerized Tomography (SPECT)
  • Transcranial Doppler (TCD) Ultrasonography
