The Vanderbilt Stroke and Cerebrovascular Center in Nashville, Tennessee offers treatment, prevention, research and rehabilitation for stroke patients. The Joint Commission has named us an Advanced Certification Comprehensive Stroke Center, which means we excel at treating the most complex stroke and cerebrovascular cases. We offer personalized care to each patient, drawing on an experienced team of experts as well as the latest technology and research findings.
