Cerebrovascular neurosurgery is the field of surgery specializing in the treatment of diseases and conditions of the blood vessels in the spinal cord and brain (nervous system). Endovascular neurosurgery employs minimally invasive techniques to treat the brain and spinal cord by utilizing microsurgical instruments that travel within (endo) the blood vessel system (vascular).
What Conditions Does Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Surgery Treat?
Our world-class neurosurgeons offer treatment for a variety of brain and spine vascular conditions. Along with traditional open approaches, our board-certified surgeons specialize in minimally invasive surgical procedures, state-of-the-art stereotactic radiosurgery employing highly focused radiation treatments using CyberKnife or Gamma Knife equipment, and interventional neuroradiology.
Endovascular surgical neuroradiology uses various advanced imaging techniques such as x-ray fluoroscopy and computed tomography to maneuver through the body instead of more open, conventional surgery. The microsurgical tools travel within the vascular system to treat neurological diseases and conditions.
NSPC’s multidisciplinary team combines expert neurosurgeons and interventional radiologists who specialize in cerebrovascular conditions such as:
Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Treatments at NSPC in New York
With centers throughout the New York area, NSPC’s cerebrovascular surgeons treat blood vessel conditions of the nervous system by using advanced surgical procedures. With innovations in minimally invasive techniques, endovascular surgery is chosen more and more for a number of reasons:
to help shorten hospital and recovery time,
reduce the amount of blood loss and damage to surrounding tissue, and
limit the amount of scarring.
Our expert cerebrovascular and endovascular surgeons have experience in treating a wide range of brain and spine conditions using the most advanced neurosurgical techniques, including but not limited to:
Brain aneurysms: Our neurosurgeons offer treatments such as endovascular aneurysm coiling and surgical clipping.
Cerebral tumor: NSPC’s Brain Tumor Center has an experienced team of neurosurgeons, surgical neuro-oncologists, endovascular neuroradiologists, and a neuropsychologist to offer you the best treatment options available such as stereotactic radiosurgery.
Spine and brain arteriovenous malformations: Our skilled endovascular surgeons offer advanced neurosurgical treatments such as minimally invasive embolization of AVMs.
