Interventional Neuroradiology

We perform more interventional neuroradiology procedures than any other provider locally.

Interventional neuroradiology is a specialty dedicated to treating disorders of the blood vessels in the brain (cerebrovascular disease), spine, head and neck and no one has more experience in the region than Mallinckrodt Insititute of Radiology. Interventioanal neuroradiology is also called endovascular neurosurgery because most procedures are performed through the blood vessels rather than through open surgery. These procedures are often performed with catheters and image-guided techniques.

Many neurovascular problems are complex and require a coordinated approach by more than one speciality and with more than one technique. Interventional neuroradiologists often work together with neurosurgerons, neurologists, otolaryngologists, vascular surgeon, orthopedic surgeons and radiation oncologists at our institutions to combine different types of treatment, which could include catheter-based interventions, surgery and/or sterotactic radiation to achieve the best outcomes.
