The Stanford Stroke Center is recognized as a leader in stroke research and treatment. Stanford has pioneered major advances in medical therapies for treating and preventing stroke, neurosurgical techniques for stroke prevention, and interventional neuroradiologic procedures for stroke patients. Stanford has developed several new imaging techniques that enable rapid identification of salvageable ischemic brain tissue. The Neurocritical Care Program has made key advances in the diagnosis of intracerebral hemorrhage and the prognosis of coma.   

 Education of new generations of stroke specialists is the goal of the Center’s fellowship programs in Vascular Neurology, Neurosurgery, Interventional Neuroradiology and   Neurocritical Care.  The Stanford Stroke Center has trained over 70 fellows; the majority of these individuals have gone on to become leaders in stroke research and education.
