Interventional Neurology

Interventional neurology, also called neurointervention, offers minimally invasive treatment for disorders of the blood vessels in the head, neck and spine. Our neurointervention team includes specialists in neurosurgery, interventional neurology and neurointerventional radiology.

What conditions can neurointervention treat?

The most common conditions treated with neurointervention include:

Other conditions treated through neurointervention are:

  • Transient ischemic attacks (TIA)
  • Cerebral artery stenosis
  • Vertebral artery disease
  • Venous diseases of the head and neck
  • Compression fractures

Neurointervention may not be suitable for every patient with these conditions.

What are neurointerventional procedures?

Neurointerventional procedures use a small incision, rather than more invasive surgery procedures that involve opening the skull or exposing the spinal column.

Through these tiny incisions, a catheter is inserted through blood vessels to problem areas in the brain or spine. Using imaging technology sent via catheter, neurointervention specialists can see and treat brain and spine issues, either with medical devices or medication.

What are the benefits of neurointervention vs. neurosurgery?

People who have neurointerventional procedures can expect shorter recovery time, fewer complications and less pain than what typically follows more invasive and open neurosurgery.

How is a neurointerventional procedure planned?

During a patient’s initial appointment, their medical history and risk factors will be evaluated. A neurointervention specialist will work with the patient to create an individualized treatment plan to help ensure the best possible outcome.

How do I get an appointment with a neurointervention specialist?

People seeing a neurointervention specialist for the first time must have a referral. Your primary care physician or medical provider will send that referral to our office. Our staff will contact you to schedule your first appointment.
