What Is Neurointerventional Radiology?

Neurointerventional Radiology is a subspecialty of radiology that provides a broad range of image guided procedures to diagnose and treat vascular (blood vessel) diseases of the central nervous system, painful conditions of the spine, and a variety of other diseases affecting the head and back. Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is the only comprehensive stroke center north of Boston and its Neurointerventional Radiology team is equipped with the most modern, state-of-the-art facilities to provide neurointerventional care.

Our leading-edge, minimally invasive techniques offer smaller incisions, less blood loss, shorter hospital stays and quicker recoveries. Neurointerventional procedures are frequently the best or only option for patients with conditions such as brain aneurysms, acute stroke and painful vertebral compression fractures. Minimally invasive techniques can often address conditions that are difficult to treat or are untreatable with open surgery.
