Stanford Interventional
Neuroradiology Program

For more than 25 years, the Stanford Interventional Neuroradiology Program has been at the forefront of developing advanced endovascular therapies to treat vascular problems of the brain and spine. Our multispecialty care team is deeply committed to pioneering the field of interventional neuroradiology and moving it forward by actively conducting research.

The interventional neuroradiology team offers all of the treatment options currently available and works with each patient and family to develop a personalized treatment plan. A nursing team member is available to guide you throughout the treatment process and during your recovery. Using a multispecialty approach, the most effective treatment with the lowest risk to you is selected after careful consideration and collaboration with the Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery and Stroke Neurology teams.

Since the inception of the Stanford Interventional Neuroradiology Program, imaging technologies and equipment have made great strides, allowing previously untreatable lesions to become treatable. These techniques often eliminate the need for open surgery and have shortened recovery times.

Interventional neuroradiology techniques use hollow plastic tubes called catheters to treat the problem from inside the blood vessel for a diverse group of diseases including aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), atherosclerosis, acute stroke and carotid stenosis. Our care team also has developed a leading center for vertebroplasty, a minimally invasive treatment for painful spinal compression fractures.
