Bernard R. Bendok, M.D., James P. Klaas, M.D., and E. Paul Lindell, M.D. describe the advances that have been made in diagnosing and treating Moyamoya disease at Mayo Clinic. A multidisciplinary team comes together in one surgical suite to bring the highest level of care and expertise to each procedure.
“Moyamoya disease is probably more common that we realize,” said Bernard R. Bendok, M.D.
“And I think to make the diagnosis does require a specialized team that knows how to recognize the symptoms.”
Mayo Clinic physicians collaborate very closely with referring providers to review potential diagnoses of Moyamoya disease.
