Cerebrovascular Disease Center

Comprehensive Cerebrovascular Disease Care

Members of Lahey Hospital & Medical Center's Neurology, Neurosurgery, Interventional Neuroradiology and Diagnostic Neuroradiology departments work in close collaboration to provide our patients with the most comprehensive diagnoses and specialized, cutting-edge treatments for vascular disorders of the brain and spinal cord. The Cerebrovascular Disease Center offers a complete spectrum of therapies, both state-of-the-art microsurgery and minimally invasive endovascular surgery, enabling us to meet each patient's needs with the highest degree of quality. The Cerebrovascular Disease Center has become a leading referral center for cerebrovascular diseases in the New England region. Our specialists care for a large volume of aneurysm and arteriovenous malformation (AVM) patients annually. We are accessible at all times to physicians for consultation, referrals and transfers.

Neurovascular Disorders

Lahey Hospital & Medical Center offers a wide array of treatment options for patients with neurovascular disorders. Patients with brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), dural fistulas and other vascular disorders are evaluated in a multidisciplinary clinic by neurosurgeons, neurologists and interventional neuroradiologists.


The state-of-the-art biplane angiography suite provides outstanding imaging capabilities, including three-dimensional angiographic reconstruction. We are able to treat our patients with cutting-edge microsurgical techniques, endovascular techniques and stereotactic radiosurgery.

Depending on the size and configuration of the aneurysm or AVM, surgery may be the preferred method of treatment. Endovascular treatment, which involves coiling aneurysms or gluing AVMs, is a newer minimally invasive technique that may provide a method for preventing hemorrhage. Radiosurgery may also be used for some smaller AVM lesions.
