Interventional Neuroradiology

The interventional neuroradiology (INR) Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens is one of a few programs in the world to offer a full team of specialists in this advanced discipline. Neurosurgeons with advanced training in neuroradiology can perform minimally invasive catheter-based techniques, using high-tech imaging equipment to guide their work.

Our Interventional Neuroradiology Program specializes in:

  • Minimally invasive approaches to cerebrovascular conditions such as aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations of the brain and spine, and stroke.
  • Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty for the treatment of painful vertebral body fractures.
  • Pre-operative embolization to improve outcomes of surgery of brain and spinal tumors.
  • Intra-arterial chemotherapy of tumors of the eye (retinoblastoma), the brain, and the spine.
