Neurointerventional surgery is a multi-disciplinary accredited and recognized medical specialty specializing in minimally invasive image-guided procedures to treat disorders of the brain, head/neck, and spine.
Neurointerventional surgery is accomplished through a small hole in the skin. Through this miniature portal, tiny catheters, needles or tubes are placed and guided to their intended targets in the brain, head/neck, or spine. The field employs sophisticated imaging technologies to precisely guide its devices into highly sensitive neural structures. Once there, devices that are amongst the most innovative and advanced available to medicine are used to accomplish minimally invasive surgical solutions. Through innovation, the treatment of certain brain vascular and spinal conditions has lended itself to this minimally invasive approach.
