University of Minnesota Health specialists diagnose and treat a full range of cerebrovascular diseases, including stroke, cerebral aneurysm, arteriovenous malformations, and carotid disease. University of Minnesota Medical Center has received Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Centers. The Joint Commission designation recognizes excellence in patient outcomes; comprehensive services, including advanced imaging and specialized treatments; patient education; and research. We are among a small national cohort given this level of certification. Through our Comprehensive Stroke Centers, acute stroke care is available 24 hours a day, and patients have access to advanced, evidence-based therapies; a dedicated neuro-intensive care inpatient unit; and comprehensive after-care services and rehabilitation support.
Our team includes neurosurgeons, neurologists, neurointensivists, interventional neuroradiologists, and advanced practice providers. This complete team approach coupled with rapid assessment and treatment offers patients the best opportunity for good outcomes.
University of Minnesota Health neurologists have implemented the telemedicine technology telestroke at Fairview Southdale Hospital, our second Comprehensive Stroke Center, in partnership with Fairview Health Services. They also operate telestroke at Fairview Ridges Hospital and Fairview Grand Itasca Hospital, with plans for further expansion underway. Telestroke technology allows many patients to be treated locally without the need for transfer to more specialized care, saving time, expediting recovery, and reducing expenses.
