Stroke Information for Medical Professionals

Referring Patients to the Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center

Barnes-Jewish & Washington University Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center accepts physician referral for diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, one-time consultations or second opinions.

As a Comprehensive Stroke Center, we treat more than 1,400 ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke patients per year—including more than 200 patients with brain aneurysms. We offer a streamlined approach for referring physicians, reducing barriers to patient transfers and saving critical time for acute stroke patients.

Doctor’s Access Line

Elective referrals for patients with cerebrovascular diseases, such as brain aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations, can be coordinated by calling (314) 362-7382.
