Stacy Wong is a nurse practitioner who cares for patients having brain surgery. She has special expertise in care for those with brain aneurysms, stroke, arteriovenous malformations (abnormal tangles of blood vessels that impede normal circulation), cavernous malformations (abnormal blood vessels in the brain or spinal cord that may leak), arteriovenous fistulas (abnormal connections between arteries and veins that diminish blood flow) and carotid artery disease (when fatty deposits clog the blood vessels supplying the brain). She educates and supports patients in both the clinic and the hospital, while collaborating with specialists to better help patients navigate their care.
Wong is a member of UCSF's neurosurgery leadership team for the acute and transitional care units; in this role, she seeks to improve patient outcomes and promote patient-centered care initiatives. She also serves on the advisory board for the UCSF Office of Advanced Practice.
Wong earned an accelerated bachelor's degree in nursing at the Duke University School of Nursing. She earned her master's degree in nursing at UCSF.
Outside of work, Wong enjoys time with her family, immersing herself in baking projects year-round and snowboarding in the winter.
