Cerebrovascular Center

Patients are treated by fellowship-trained neurosurgeons that include national experts in cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery. Trained to perform both traditional surgery and less invasive endovascular treatments, the full range of treatment options are available.

Neurosurgeons include Dr. Erol Veznedaroglu, Dr. Kenneth Liebman  , Dr. Mandy J. Binning, and Dr. Zakaria Hakma, each of whom work with referring doctors to provide patients with the most specialized care available for a wide range of cerebrovascular conditions using the most advanced techniques available. This includes minimally invasive approaches to treating acute and complex stroke, aneurysms, and arteriovenous malformations.

Through unique coordination with referring physicians, a multi-disciplinary staff and advanced diagnostic, medical and surgical services, our experts work together to provide the most comprehensive treatment available for patients requiring advanced care.

Our experienced team manages your care from the time your physician makes the first phone call, until your treatment at Capital Health is complete. 

Because they were among the first to use many of the most current treatment methods, you can be confident that our neurosurgeons have the experience and expertise to provide you with excellent care and guidance from diagnosis to treatment. As dual trained neurosurgeons, they can perform both traditional surgery and less invasive endovascular approaches, which means patients can receive the care they need, by one doctor, without delay.

We offer the benefits of a community hospital by making it comfortable and easy for families and patients to navigate, with doctors that are accessible. We combine that with some of the high-end aspects of academic medical centers: cutting edge technologies and treatments, and physicians who are engaged in research that is helping define the next phase in treatment for stroke and other cerebrovascular disorders.

Neurosurgeons are involved in many research studies helping to bring the next generation of treatment devices to patients and move the field of care forward.  They were the first in the country to use Trevo™, both during its investigational study and following FDA approval, for use in patients suffering from ischemic stroke; and were the first in the Philadelphia region to use Solitaire™, another stroke device. They also have trained other doctors in the use of tools such as the Enterprise Stent, Wingspan Stent, and ONYX HD 500 glue for AVMs and aneurysms, and researched and described the relation of smoking and the recurrence of aneurysms.

Treatments include:

•Endovascular aneurysm surgery
•Aneurysm surgery
•AVM surgery
•Endovascular AVM surgery
•Carotid stenting
•Carotid endarterectomy
•Intra-cranial cerebral angioplasty and stenting
•Cerebral revascularization
•Intravenous and intra-arterial thrombolysis and mechanical thrombectomy

If you are experiencing  a medical emergency or any of the signs or symptoms of stroke you should call 911 immediately.
