Interventional Neuroradiology

If you have a cerebrovascular condition that impacts the blood vessels in your head or neck, like an aneurysm or stroke, you need a specialist in interventional neuro radiology. At Providence, our team specializes in minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat your condition. 

At Providence, some of the nation’s leading specialists in interventional neuroradiology are available to treat many cerebrovascular conditions. The minimally invasive procedures mean less pain, risk and recovery time compared to open surgery. 

We use the most advanced angiographic equipment to treat many conditions, including: 

  • Aneurysms 
  • Arteriovenous malformations 
  • Dural arteriovenous fistulas 
  • Stroke
  • Tumors  

When you need an endovascular procedure, you are treated in one of our radiology angiographic suites rather than in the operating room. In most cases, you will be given an IV sedative to help you relax. After the procedure, you may feel some discomfort.

Procedures we perform include:

  • Carotid artery angioplasty 
  • Catheter embolization 
  • Cerebral angiography 
  • Endovascular coiling 
  • Sealing off specific blood vessels prior to surgery to minimize bleeding during an operation
  • Thrombolytic therapy  

Your care team includes specialists in neuroradiology, neurosurgery and neurology, depending on your specific condition.
