Neuroendovascular Therapy

Neuroendovascular therapy treats complex neurologic vascular lesions such as intracranial aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and arteriovenous fistulas of the brain and spine.

Endovascular surgical neuroradiology (aka interventional neuroradiology or endovascular neurosurgery) is a subspecialty within the fields of neurosurgery, neurology and radiology that has as its goal the management and treatment of complex neurologic lesions using minimally invasive techniques. By threading small catheters through arteries and veins, the neurointerventionalist is able to treat lesions from within the blood vessel. The advantage of such therapy resides in the less invasive approach to the lesion which often translates into shorter recovery times and more effective therapy.

As a truly multi-disciplinary specialty, the members of this center work at the intersection of the fields of cerebrovascular surgery, interventional neuroradiology and stroke neurology to treat patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke.

Below is a list of some of the neuroendovascular treatments available.
