Maimonides is one of four hospitals in NY State recognized for exceptional cardiac surgery outcomes.
The carotid arteries are major blood vessels in the neck that supply blood to the brain, neck and face. Risk of stroke is increased when these are clogged. Ultrasound screenings may show if one or both carotid arteries narrow. With early detection, treatment can be taken to restore free flow of blood to the brain. As a result, many strokes are prevented.
