Intracranial venous malformation care at Mayo Clinic

Experience

Mayo Clinic doctors trained in brain and nervous system conditions (neurologists), brain and nervous system surgery (neurosurgeons), and other specialties have vast experience diagnosing and treating people with intracranial venous malformations and other brain and other central nervous system vascular malformations.

Each year Mayo Clinic doctors evaluate and treat more than 400 people with intracranial venous malformations, as well as people with other brain and blood vessel conditions (cerebrovascular conditions).

Team approach

Mayo Clinic experts from a variety of specialties work together as a team to diagnose and treat your condition.

Close collaboration enables the team to have your test results available quickly and to coordinate all necessary appointments. Evaluation and treatment that might take weeks elsewhere can typically be done in only a matter of days at Mayo Clinic.

Your Mayo Clinic care team will take the time to explain and discuss all your treatment options.

Mayo Clinic doctors study intracranial venous malformations and related conditions and conduct clinical trials. You may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial or other research study as part of your treatment at Mayo Clinic.
