At University of Utah Health, neurointerventional radiologists are physicians board certified in diagnostic radiology. Having a dedicated, fellowship-trained neurointerventional radiologist group is a unique strength of University of Utah Health.
Guided by real time imaging, our neurointerventional radiologists perform a wide-range of minimally invasive procedures to clear blockages and stop excessive bleeding in the brain. They also perform other procedures on the bones and joints of the spine to deliver medications to relieve pain and improve function.
As members of the Brain Attack Team at University of Utah Health, we also maintain a 24 hours a day/7 days per week, on-call schedule to provide prompt diagnosis and treatment for stroke patients day and night.
