The Neuroendovascular Surgery Program
The Neuroendovascular Surgery Program at Mount Sinai applies advanced technology to provide quality treatments on vascular and related disorders of the brain and spine. A multidisciplinary collaboration of surgeons, physicians, nurses, and support staff specializing in endovascular neurosurgery, interventional neuroradiology, neurosurgery, neurology, stroke, trauma, otolaryngology (ENT), and plastic surgery develop an individually tailored, comprehensive medical care plan for each specific patient – whether children, adults, or the elderly.
The Neuroendovascular Surgery Program’s modern, state-of-the-art facility utilizes the most effective and least invasive procedures available, and, varying on the condition and involvement required, treatment plans may include minimally invasive endovascular procedures or open microsurgery.
Advanced 3D Neurosurgical Simulators
In Mount Sinai’s pioneering efforts to continue the delivery of exceptional medical care, improve outcomes, and reduce complications with our patients, we utilize advanced, high-end, 3D neurosurgical and endovascular simulators. Highly innovative, simulator platforms allow surgeons to input patient-specific data and brain images, developing a precise 3D rendering of the patient’s brain. Prior to the surgery, our team of skilled surgeons can begin the preparation, planning, and rehearsal of a variety of vascular procedures, including the clipping of aneurysms and resection of tumors. Likewise, our physicians can review endovascular techniques on endovascular simulators to ensure they are appropriate for patient treatment.
Our team is also prepared to provide emergency, trauma, and urgent care to patients who are affected by cerebral hemorrhages, aneurysm rupture, or ischemic strokes. Time is of the essence in the treatment of many cerebrovascular diseases. Both brain ischemia and hemorrhage require prompt treatment. Intervention must be accurate and swift to prevent temporary or even permanent damage to the brain, resulting in mental, physical, and cognitive disabilities. Our experts diagnose these conditions and determine a strategy to prevent or minimize cerebrovascular complications.
Expertise with Hemangiomas and Vascular Malformations
The Neuroendovascular Surgery Program provides exceptional care in the treatment, management, and research of hemangiomas and vascular malformations. Vascular malformations are approached in a multidisciplinary manner employing endovascular therapy, microsurgery, radiation, and often combinations of the three. We employ the latest, state-of-the-art technology, treatment methods and protocols for infants, teenagers, and even adults affected by vascular birthmarks, tumors, and anomalies.
