Interventional neurologists use minimally invasive techniques to treat conditions that affect the blood vessels in the brain and spine. These techniques have faster recovery times than open neurosurgical procedures and reduce the risk for bleeding and infection.
Interventional neurologists work closely with endovascular surgeons and neurosurgeons to treat problems such as:
At the University of Miami Health System, we use the latest technology to perform interventional neurology procedures, including 3-D imaging that allows our physician to carefully guide specialized tools through blood vessels and into the brain. We also use a variety of advanced tools to remove blood clots, place stents, and stop bleeding.
We also provide access to leading-edge care through National Institutes of Health sponsored clinical trials. Our experts are improving how doctors across the country treat strokes. We also research new therapies, such as stem cell therapy for stroke.
You can rely on us for comprehensive care, from lifesaving stroke and aneurysm care in our two interventional neurology suites to supportive treatment in our 24-bed neurosurgical intensive care unit and 8-bed stroke unit. Our dedicated team cares from you from diagnosis through recovery, ensuring you maintain great neurological health.
