Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology
University of Maryland offers a one year dedicated Endovascular Neuroradiology fellowship Program. The fellowship offers an extensive experience in endovascular as well as percutaneous procedures. University of Maryland is a busy academic medical center with a large tertiary care hospital, one of the busiest trauma facilities in the country as well as a large referral center from collaborating community hospitals.
Our section performs a large number of diagnostic cerebral angiograms and embolization procedures for intracranial aneurysms, vascular malformations, blunt and penetrating trauma as well as preoperative embolization of vascular head and neck neoplasms. In addition, the fellows also gain extensive experience with spinal percutaneous procedures including vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, RF ablation and pain procedures.
The fellow works closely with three dedicated interventional neuroradiologists with extensive experience in the field and a very experienced nurse practitioner. There is significant emphasis on teaching. In addition to daily clinical teaching, our section participates in weekly didactic lecture schedule, a weekly stroke conference and a visiting professor program.
There are a number of opportunities for research with the faculty members and the fellows receive mentoring in creating research studies and presenting their work. Prospective research projects are underway with the industry and fellow participation is strongly encouraged.
