Interventional neuroradiology

Interventional neuroradiologists use specialized, minimally invasive procedures to treat children and adults with:

  • Brain Aneurysms
  • Brain, head and neck and spine arterio-venous malformations
  • Acute stroke
  • Intractable headaches and facial pain (trigeminal neuralgia)
  • Spinal compression fractures

Our state-of-the-art angiography suite is equipped with advanced imaging equipment that enables the management of the most complex vascular lesions for neuro-interventional procedures. This technology enables us to see sequential scans quickly, allowing us to begin treatment sooner. We use minimally invasive technology and approaches to treat stroke patients, resulting in a high rate of opening clogged vessels in the brain.
