  Interventional Neuroradiology
Font Size: [+] [-]
 
Interventional Neuroradiology is a minimally invasive approach in the treatment of vascular diseases of the central nervous system. Conditions in the past that would have required surgical intervention such as aneurysms, vascular malformations, and tumors of the brain, spine, head and neck can be considered for treatment by using an endovascular approach to reach the lesion.
 
The Purpose of this Center is to provide a complete range of services for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with neurovascular problems of the brain and spinal cord. Patients may be referred for consultation only, care in partnership with referring physician, or complete management
 
Interventional Neuroradiology is a minimally invasive approach in the treatment of vascular diseases of the central nervous system. Conditions in the past that would have required surgical intervention such as aneurysms, vascular malformations, and tumors of the brain, spine, head and neck can be considered for treatment by using an endovascular approach to reach the lesion. Interventional techniques such as thrombolysis are also useful in the management of patients with acute ischemic stroke. These endovascular procedures can allow treatment of previously untreatable or difficult lesions. Our team of Interventional Neuroradiologists are available for consultation 24 hours a day.

We have a weekly Cerebrovascular conference to review radiographic studies and clinical information on cases referred to the Center for discussion of treatment options.

We invite you to send cases. Please contact our nurse coordinator
