Patients with cervical artery dissection may be treated by neurologists, neurosurgeons, or vascular medicine or vascular surgical specialists, often in a multidisciplinary fashion.
Doctors vary in quality due to differences in training and experience; hospitals differ in the number of services available. The more complex your medical problem, the greater these differences in quality become and the more they matter.
Clearly, the doctor and hospital that you choose for complex, specialized medical care will have a direct impact on how well you do. To help you make this choice, please review our outcomes:
