Our radiology staff has one of only 300 interventional neuroradiologists in the world.
Interventional neuroradiology uses state-of-the-art equipment to successfully treat complex disorders, including cerebrovascular problems, from within the blood vessels and other body structures.
Breakthroughs in treatment
Minimally invasive endovascular treatments—including intracranial, extracranial, carotid and vertebral-basilar stenting, and acute stroke management—have had a major, positive impact on the treatment of complex cerebrovascular disorders. Other conditions once considered untreatable, or treated with great difficulty, can now be addressed using interventional radiology techniques alone or in combination with surgical or medical therapy.
Some of the conditions that are currently being treated include cerebral aneurysms, arterio-venous malformations, and tumors of the brain, spinal cord, and head and neck. Exciting new therapies for spinal problems, and stroke prevention and treatment, are also available.
At Hurley, examples of interventional neuroradiology procedures include the following:
