Patient Referrals: What You Need to Know
The Swedish Cerebrovascular Center is part of one of the largest neuroscience institutes in the country. Our neurosurgeons are specially trained in cerebrovascular diseases, and evaluate nearly 500 patients a year — one of the highest volumes in the Pacific Northwest. Find a board-certified neurosurgical specialist and see how to refer your patient to Swedish.
Your patient may be at higher risk for a cerebral aneurysm if they have two first degree relatives (sibling, parent, grandparent) with a history of cerebral aneurysm.
If your patient is at higher risk, order an MR Angiogram (MRA) or CT Angiogram (CTA) to screen the patient for an aneurysm, and then refer to the Cerebrovascular Center if necessary. For emergent cases, call the Swedish Transfer Center 24x7 at 866-470-4233.
The care team at the Swedish Cerebrovascular Center has established a support group for patients and family members touched by the diagnosis of a brain aneurysm or other cerebrovascular condition. For more information visit www.swedish.org/cvsupport.
