Neurointerventional Radiology

Neurosurgeons have a variety of highly specialized and targeted ways to address diseases and conditions affecting the brain, including a subspecialty known as endovascular surgery and neurointerventional radiology.

At the Ayer Neuroscience Institute, in order to offer our patients the best possible care and minimally-invasive options to open surgery, many of our providers have dual training and experience with this subspecialty, which uses tools and catheters passed through blood vessels to diagnose and treat neurological conditions and diseases.

Types of Neurointerventional Radiology

  • Thrombolytic therapy. The surgeon can dissolve a clot in a blood vessel, either in the brain or elsewhere in the body, by directly administering “clot-busting” medication.
  • Endovascular coiling. If you have an aneurysm - a bulging, weakened area in the wall of an arteryin the brain - this procedure can help.The surgeon inserts a thin metal wire into the aneurysm. The wire forms a coil and blocks the blood flow, preventing the aneurysm from bursting.
  • Cerebral angiography. Using advanced technology, we can look at the way blood is flowing in your brain.
  • Carotid artery angioplasty. The carotid artery supplies blood to your brain. If it narrows, we can go in with a small balloon and/or metal stent to reopen it and restore blood flow.
  • Minimally-invasive spine surgery. We treat spine disorders, whether congenital or resulting from injuries or tumors, using minimally-invasive techniques conducted through small incisions.
