Endovascular and Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery
Endovascular neurosurgery involves procedures performed within blood vessels under fluoroscopic guidance. Performing a minimally-invasive surgery within a blood vessel requires only a very small incision to access the artery, allowing for a faster recovery.
Minimally-invasive blood vessel surgery
Our highly experienced and compassionate neurosurgeons, neurointerventionalists, neurologists and specially trained nurses work as a team to treat complex conditions such as stroke or other problems with blood flow to the brain.
Conditions we treat
- Acute ischemic stroke
- Arteriovenous malformations (known as “AVMs”)
- Arterial/carotid stenosis
- Cerebral aneurysm
- Cerebral cavernous malformations
- Intracerebral hemorrhage
- Moyamoya disease
- Spinal arteriovenous malformations and arteriovenous fistulae
Unique hybrid operating suite
Prisma Health has the region’s only neurointerventional hybrid operating suite, which allows our neurosurgeons to combine both open surgery and minimally-invasive techniques. This unique operating facility also includes mobile imaging such as MRI or CT. This means your neurosurgeon has exact guidance from the images during the procedure (not just before) and can confirm everything is complete before you leave the room. This innovative approach leads to better outcomes and faster recovery.
