If you have a neurological condition or abnormality, you may need surgery. The experts at Baptist Health are here to give you the high-level care you need. Our specially trained interventional neuroradiologists are national leaders in interventional neuroradiology who have treated more than 6,000 patients over the past decade.

When you have a cerebrovascular condition, you need compassionate, comprehensive care. We work closely with our neuroradiology, neurology and neurosurgery colleagues to give you the most accurate diagnosis and create a treatment plan that’s specific to your needs. And we use minimally invasive procedures to shorten your recovery time and give you a better outcome.

We look forward to being your partner in your journey back to better neurological health.

Our Approach to Interventional Neuroradiology

Our Approach to Interventional Neuroradiology

At Baptist Health, we know everyone’s neurological problem is different. That’s why we take a personalized approach to designing your treatment plan. We’ll be by your side — like a trusted family member — while we work with you to find the therapy options that best meet your needs.

We’re a national leader in interventional neuroradiology care, so you can be confident you’ll receive leading-edge service with us. Our team of world-renowned experts have been trailblazers in this field for more than a decade. Not only are they trained in the latest techniques, but they’re also moving the field forward through innovative research efforts.

Our goal is to give you a better overall experience and help you return to regular life as soon as possible. By using minimally invasive techniques, we deliver better outcomes and have reduced our stroke mortality rate by five times. Our patients also recover faster. If you have an elective procedure, you will likely go home the next day. You can return to work and normal activities within three to five days once the site where we insert the catheter (either your groin or wrist) heals.

Neurological Conditions We Treat

Our expert interventional neuroradiologists are trained in a full range of interventional neuroradiology techniques. They can remove blockages in your brain or correct problems with the blood vessels in your brain, head and neck. If needed, they can also stop blood flow to an aneurysm or tumor.

We treat many conditions, including:

Interventional Neuroradiology Treatments We Offer

Every interventional neuroradiology treatment is minimally invasive. For these procedures, we insert a small tube called a catheter into a blood vessel in your wrist or groin and use advanced imaging guidance to thread it to the problem spot in your brain.

We offer a wide variety of interventional neuroradiology treatments, including:

  • Like the treatment used for cardiac arteries, this procedure widens blood vessels or arteries to lower the risk of blockages.

  • This treatment inserts small metal coils to help clot your aneurysm. This stops blood flow to the aneurysm to prevent rupture.

  • For this procedure, your interventional neuroradiologist will use X-ray imaging to view the blood vessels in your brain. They may also inject you with contrast dye to make it easier to see the structure of your blood vessels.

  • These procedures block blood flow. They are used to treat arteriovenous malformations, brain aneurysms, the middle meningeal artery and vascular malformations.

  • For this procedure, your interventional neuroradiologist will place a catheter in your brain to remove the blood clot that’s causing the stroke.

  • This treatment uses special tubes called stents to stop blood flow to an aneurysm, reducing the risk of rupture.

  • In this procedure, your interventional neuroradiologist threads a tiny balloon through a catheter in the blood vessels in your brain. They inflate the balloon to widen the blood vessels and increase blood flow.

  • This procedure is used to block blood flow to tumors prior to surgery. It helps control bleeding during the operation and makes it easier for your surgeon to remove the tumor.

  • With this treatment, your interventional neuroradiologist injects an irritating agent into your vein or lymph vessel to help shrink it.

  • This treatment uses advanced imaging to directly apply clotting agents, such as coils or glue, to an area that is bleeding or to block blood flow to a spine tumor or arteriovenous malformation. It’s less invasive than traditional open surgery.

  • During this procedure, your interventional neuroradiologist will remove blood clots from your arteries or veins.

  • This treatment helps stop blood flow to a tumor in your brain or spine.

  • This test uses X-ray imaging to help your interventional neuroradiologists determine which therapies can best treat your seizures while preserving your speech and memory.

  • This small, woven device prevents blood from reaching an aneurysm, reducing the risk of rupture.
