Expert Team

Cedars-Sinai's Stroke Program is committed to a coordinated approach to stroke management, bringing together neurologists, neurosurgeons, vascular surgeons, neuroradiologists and physiatrists to provide the personalized treatment that will lead to the best possible patient outcomes and quality of life.


Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
