  • Endovascular Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms: A non-surgical treatment option which involves the use of tiny metal coils and/or a metal mesh tube, or stent, to encourage blood clotting, and therefore prevent bleeding.
  • Carotid Stent: A procedure used to open clogged arteries of the neck and restore blood flow to the brain. The arteries are held opened by a stent, a small wire mesh device that is inserted in the artery of the neck.
  • Intracranial Stenting: Intracranial stenting involves placing a wire mesh tube, or stent, in a narrowed artery in the brain. The stent expands to open the artery and stays in place to prevent further narrowing.
  • Endovascular Treatment of AVM/AVF Fistulas: This treatment is used when arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) occur, which happens when blood vessels in the brain are tangled and cause blood to bypass brain tissue, diverting it instead directly from arteries to veins. This procedure is used with a series of X-rays as a guide to reach the fistula to block the incorrect blood flow.
  • Presurgical tumor embolization: A procedure that shuts down the blood supply to a tumor. This can help reduce bleeding during surgery.
  • Endovascular Nosebleed Treatment: A minimally invasive procedure in which blood is deliberatively blocked in order to stop the nosebleed.
  • Cerebral angiograms: A procedure that uses contrast (dye), along with X-ray, to look at the blood flow within the brain.
  • Spinal angiography: A diagnostic procedure to evaluate the blood vessels that surround the spinal cord. It is usually performed to look for abnormality of the vessels.
  • Wada Test: A test is used to determine which side of the brain controls language function and how important each side of the brain is in regard to memory function.
