Neurointerventional Surgery

Neurointerventional surgery, also known as interventional neuroradiology or neurovascular surgery, is a subspecialty focused on the diagnosis and management of vascular diseases and conditions of the head, neck, and spine. Neurointerventional surgery is a minimally invasive, endovascular approach that uses tiny tubes called microcatheters to open or close abnormal vessels of the brain and spine. Many conditions that were historically untreatable or required more complex or invasive surgery can now be treated using this type of surgery.
