The Neurointerventional Program at Sarasota Memorial provides a complete spectrum of minimally invasive services for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with vascular problems related to the brain and spinal cord.
Neurointerventional Radiology is a relatively new but growing specialty that uses minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat disorders of the blood vessels of the spine, neck and head. Working closely with neurologists and neurosurgeons, neurointerventional radiologists use microcatheters, stents, balloons, and similar devices to diagnose/treat aneurysm, vascular formations, clots, strokes, etc.
In the past, certain conditions that would have required open surgery such as aneurysms, vascular malformations, and tumors of the head, brain, neck and spine can now be considered for a minimally invasive treatment using an endovascular approach to reach the problem.
