Interventional Neuroradiology

nir4.jpgThe goal of the Interventional Neuroradiology program at the University of Maryland is to provide state-of-the-art, minimally invasive treatments for neurovascular disorders and spine disorders and to advance this field by developing innovative and safer techniques. We take pride in our "patient and their families first" approach and strive to deliver a comprehensive and compassionate care.

Interventional Neuroradiology at the University of Maryland is an internationally recognized program with brand new equipment and recently updated facilities. Our physicians specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of adult and pediatric neurovascular diseases and have extensive clinical and research experience.

We provide minimally invasive treatment for a variety of conditions including:

  • Cerebral Aneurysms
  • Arteriovenous Malformations
  • Dural Arteriovenous Fistula
  • Stroke
  • Carotid and Intracranial Stenosis
  • Head/Neck and Spinal Vascular Malformations

The University of Maryland also has a long track record of being leaders in the field of minimally invasive spine procedures like vertebroplasty, epidural injections, discography and palliative treatment of benign and metastatic tumors.

There is a strong emphasis on a multidisciplinary team approach in the treatment of often complex and challenging neurovascular diseases. Our physicians work in close collaboration with the Departments of Neurosurgery, Neurology, Otolaryngology-Head/Neck Surgery, Critical Care and Trauma services.

Teaching and research are strong components of our program. Our physicians have a long track record of teaching and high quality research and have won accolades at local and national level.

We can also provide services for the patients who may want to seek consultation for a second opinion. Second opinions can usually be rendered within 3 - 7 business days.
