Neurointerventional & Cerebrovascular Surgery Fellowship

The Ayer Neuroscience Institute Neurointerventional & Cerebrovascular Surgery Fellowship at Hartford Hospital is a two-year program that provides unique opportunities to develop skill sets in both the neurointerventional suite and operating room in one of New England’s busiest stroke centers.

The program is dedicated to comprehensive training in both diagnostic and treatment realms of care. Technical expertise is gained through a large volume of procedures coinciding with clinical application in the management of this patient group. The fellowship is led by co-directors Dr. Inam Kureshi and Dr. Martin Ollenschlegar, with a dedicated faculty of neurosurgeons, neurointerventionalists, stroke neurologists, and neuroradiologists.

Program Highlights

The Neurointerventional & Cerebrovascular Surgery Fellowship consists of both didactic and clinical training at an 800-bed, tertiary-referral care center. With over 600 endovascular and open cerebrovascular procedures performed annually, the Stroke Center at Hartford Hospital acts as a major referral center for endovascular and neurosurgical services from Connecticut, Massachusetts, and eastern New York.

Hartford Hospital is New England’s first Joint Commission-certified Comprehensive Stroke Center and a Level 1 trauma center, both served by two medical helicopters.

Besides diagnostic angiograms, a broad array of procedures are performed regularly, including stent-assisted coiling with Pipeline, and PENUMBRA. Procedures are performed in modern flat-panel biplane neurointerventional suites, offering state-of-the-art, three-dimensional angiography and many advanced imaging and procedural guidance applications.
