Rapid Response, Personalized Care
CHS's neurointerventional specialists treat urgent and emergent care for cerebrovascular disease for patients who have had a stroke or cerebral hemorrhage. We also treat elective patients who require diagnosis and treatment for cerebral aneurysm, blood vessel malfunction, or any abnormality that can occur in the brain, spinal cord and neck.
Why choose CHS?
Advanced Treatments and Procedures
CHS's neurointerventional treatments and procedures include:
- Arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
- Arteriovenous fistula (AVF)
- Carotid endarterectomy
- Carotid stenosis
- Carotid stenting
- Cavernous malformation
- Cerebral angiogram
- Endovascular coiling
- Endovascular embolization

- Intracranial aneurysms
- Moyamoya disesase
- Spinal arteriovenous malformation/fistula
- Subarachnoid hemorrhage
The majority of our treatments are minimally invasive and include navigating catheters and wires through needle sticks in the wrist or groin to repair arteries in the brain.
Our specialists use state-of-the-art technology by threading micro-catheters through blood vessels to locate blood clots and dissolve or remove them. This allows numerous vascular diseases of the head, neck, brain and spine to be effectively treated without conventional surgery. Before treatment, patients are advised of risks and benefits and guided through the process with care and compassion.
CHS's neuroscience team includes leaders in endovascular, stroke, brain aneurysms and other cerebrovascular pathology. At CHS's six hospitals across Long Island, they closely coordinate to ensure a patient receives the fastest and most accurate treatment.
Our goal is to help patients and their caregivers navigate challenging diagnoses and to provide support on the path to recovery.
CHS's neurointervention program includes five Joint Commission Certified Primary Stroke Centers and The Stroke and Brain Aneurysm Center of Long Island at Good Samaritan Hospital, the only Joint Commission Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center on the south shore of Long Island - the highest recognition in the field of stroke. The center treats a high volume of the most complex cerebrovascular pathologies including stroke, brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, cavernous malformations, moyamoya disease and carotid stenosis. It is a regional and national referral center for these diseases with multiple "firsts" in the region.
All CHS hospitals are leaders in following national guidelines and offering timely treatment for devastating diseases.
