When you need expertise for critical conditions like stroke and aneurysms, UI Health is your destination for expert care.
The UI Health neurosurgery team includes specialists in endovascular neurosurgery — minimally invasive procedures to treat diseases of the brain and spinal cord — who are committed to providing you with high-quality care in a healing environment.
What is Endovascular Neurosurgery?
Endovascular neurosurgery brings together the skill and technology of neurosurgery and radiology to treat neurological conditions, specifically those affecting blood vessels. Endovascular and interventional neurosurgeons use images and catheters during minimally invasive procedures rather than open surgery. In some cases, this can result in shorter recovery times and more effective therapy.
