A German board certified neurosurgeon with fellowship training in endovascular neurosurgery, Dr. Ruth Thiex completed her medical school and PhD degree with distinction at Aachen University in Germany, where she then went on to residency training in Neurosurgery and graduated in 2004. In the same year, she joined faculty at the Department of Neurosurgery at Aachen University and was appointed extracurricular Professor of Neurosurgery in 2011. After a two-year fellowship in endovascular neurosurgery at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston, she stayed on staff until she relocated to Seattle. Dr. Thiex serves as a neurosurgeon and interventional neuroradiologist at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett since November 2011. She is specialized in the treatment of cerebrovascular and spinal vascular lesions, including cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), dural arteriovenous fistulae (dAVF), and brain/spine tumor embolizations. She is also skilled in the interventional techniques for treating acute stroke patients.
I bring the expertise I gained at three internationally renowned universities to Providence to serve the needs of the patients in this community locally and at its best. I add to the current neurosurgical spectrum techniques of treating lesions in the brain through the arterial/venous system via a minimal-invasive approach.
