Neurointerventional Radiology Procedures

Treatments for Vascular Diseases

At Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, our neurointerventional radiology team routinely performs a broad range of imaging-guided procedures to treat vascular (blood vessel) diseases of the central nervous system. Our talented and experienced team uses the most innovative technology in the Boston area to help patients.

We use minimally invasive procedures whenever possible because of the benefits it offers patients, such as:

  • Faster recoveries
  • Fewer complications
  • Less damage to healthy tissue
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Quicker abilities to return to home and work after treatment
