November 6, 2017  //  FOUND IN: News

Michigan Medicine and its affiliate, Metro Health, is proud to announce the arrival of the Comprehensive Cerebrovascular Program in Grand Rapids.

The new program at Metro Health will offer 24-7 care for all patients with cerebrovascular conditions — allowing individuals to undergo treatment for stroke, brain aneurysms, carotid disease and closer to their homes.

“We are excited to help deliver advanced stroke care to the western Michigan community,” said Aditya Pandey, M.D., associate professor of neurological surgery at Michigan Medicine. “Advancements in stroke therapy, specifically endovascular techniques, has allowed for the treatment of patients suffering from severe strokes. Making this therapy available in Grand Rapids will allow for the treatment of patients who have come to the hospital in a delayed fashion.”

The program is one of many ways the organization is expanding its reach across the state of Michigan and delivering complex care to local communities.

“That’s vitally important to ensuring we touch and improve as many lives as possible,” Pandey said.
