With state-of-the-art imaging technology, a dedicated intensive-care unit, and the most advanced therapies and surgical techniques, the neurovascular and endovascular specialists at Tower Health provide individualized diagnosis, treatment, and care for many conditions, including:

  • Aneurysms
  • Arteriovenous malformations
  • Carotid artery stenosis
  • Carotid cavernous fistulas 
  • Carotid occlusive disease
  • Cavernous malformations 
  • Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis 
  •  Skull base tumors
  • Stroke (ischemic, subarachnoid hemorrhage, hemorrhagic)

Endovascular Surgery for Blood Vessel Conditions 

Endovascular surgery is an innovative, less invasive procedure. At Tower Health, we use this approach to treat conditions affecting the blood vessels, including swelling or “ballooning” (aneurysm) of the blood vessel.

We use this approach as an alternative to open surgery when appropriate, and patients often experience less pain and a shorter recovery. We offer:

  • Angioplasty 
  • Endovascular coiling
  • Embolization 
  • Endovascular mechanical thrombectomy 
  • Stenting procedures

Endoscopic or Minimally Invasive Surgery 

Endovascular neurosurgery, called neurointerventional neurosurgery or interventional neuroradiology, is a minimally invasive approach that combines advanced imaging techniques and catheter-based tools to deliver care to the nervous system. This minimally invasive approach often offers means faster recovery times and less stress for your body. Types of endovascular procedures performed at Tower Health include:

  • Microsurgical repair 
  • Microsurgical resections 
  • Endovascular coiling  
  • Carotid endarterectomy
  •  Embolization 
  • Stenting
  •  Intra-arterial thrombolysis  
  • Mechanical thrombolysis
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery

 Traditional Open Surgery

Some neurovascular procedures need to be done in the traditional, open method of surgery. This allows the surgeon to directly repair the area in a safe, effective method. Open surgery is often used to:

  • Remove skull base tumors
  • Relieve a compressed nerve
  • Repair an aneurysm
