Neurovascular Team

Our Purpose


The Neurovascular Response Team at Cedars-Sinai has been created to diagnose and treat both emergency and non-emergency neurovascular conditions and to be available 24 hours a day.

Our fellowship-trained, board-certified interventional neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, and stroke neurologists perform every procedure. We offer complete care for patients from diagnosis through treatment.

Our team can be reached with a single phone call, 24 hours a day.

  • Develop a treatment plan tailored to each patient
  • Perform indicated procedures using either neurointerventional or neurosurgical techniques

  • Subclavian steal syndrome

Why Choose the S. Mark Taper Foundation Imaging Center for Neurovascular conditions?

Below: Images of the inferior vena cava (IVC), which is a major vein serving the heart. The images show a thrombectomy and recanalization for a 57-year-old male with acute chronic large IVC thrombus (blood clot) above and below an IVC filter (designed to catch blood clots and prevent them from reaching the heart or lungs). The IVC (vein) is vertical in both images, between the yellow lines. In the image on the left, blood flow is reduced by a clot. The arrow points to the IVC filter. In the image on the right, a thrombectomy has been performed and blood flow has been restored, as shown by the darker color of the vein near the IVC (arrow). A second IVC filter can be seen in the vein at the top of the image on the right. it was inserted to ensure the clot does not migrate along the vein.
