Why you might need to see a Neurointerventionalist

A Neurointerventionalist is a physician who is a neurologist who continues their education to perform minimally invasive procedures using radiology. This is a subspeciality who treats vascular pathologies of the central nervous system using a catheter-based technique. Some conditions that a neurointerventionalists treat are: venous sinus stenosis, strokes, aneurysms, and compression fractures.

How to find the right one

If you have healthcare insurance, you may need a referral from your primary care or other specialists to see a neurointerventionalist. If you have had prior imaging, it will be helpful to this group of specialists to bring the images (such as a CD rom, etc) for comparison and review. You can visit most hospital and professional webpages to see if your neurointerventionalist treats conditions like venous sinus stenosis.
