Stroke & Brain Aneurysm Center of Long Island - Facilities
Philips Biplane Angiography Suite
We have designed and are currently operating one of the newest and most advanced Phillips Biplane Angiography Suites in the country.
Biplane angiography provides us with unparalleled imaging quality in multiple planes, and through 3 dimensional imaging that allows us to operate with precision in the most distant parts of the brain. Employing the new feature Allura Clarity we are able to utilize the smallest amount of radiation possible to date possible to date.
Endovascular neurosurgery is the minimally invasive field of neurosurgery that allows us to operate on brain aneurysms, stroke, vascular malformations, and carotid disease through a small needle stick in the patient’s groin. Biplane angiography is crucial for these operations to be performed safely and accurately.
A whole multi-disciplinary team of experts tends to our patients during these complex operations. This is comprised of endovascular neurosurgeons, endovascular advanced practice providers, technologists, registered nurses, anesthesiologists, and electrophysiologists.
Neuro-intensive Care Unit and Step Down Unit
The Stroke & Brain Aneurysm Center Team participated in the creation of the first Neuro-Intensive Care unit on the south shore of Long Island. The success of endovascular neurosurgery interventions does not stop at the endovascular suite. Our patients need expert neuro-critical care to ensure the best outcome possible. A multi-disciplinary team of experts including neurosurgeons, neuro-intensivists, stroke neurologists, pulmonologists, critical care advanced practice providers, registered nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, respiratory therapists, and ultrasound technologists tend to our patients’ every need 24/7. Our Neuro-Step Down Unit acts as a bridge that allows us to monitor our patients closely, before they transition to the floor after their hospitalization in the Neuro-ICU. These model units have been created with the needs of the patient in mind. We want every one of our patients to be treated the same way we would want our family to be cared for.
