Norton Neuroscience Institute is a regional leader in the field of endovascular neurosurgery. We use cutting-edge, minimally invasive endovascular procedures to treat neurological conditions without craniotomy, or open surgery, which can mean less risk of complications and a shorter recovery.
Endovascular neurosurgery is one of the latest approaches in the treatment of aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations and other conditions that cause stroke or neurological damage. This breakthrough technique allows our neurosurgical specialists access to the brain via catheters inserted through blood vessels.
Conditions we may be able to treat using endovascular neurosurgery include:
When treating cerebrovascular and other conditions, our goal is to provide the best, most effective treatments possible using the most current minimally invasive endovascular technology.
Our endovascular neurosurgeons insert a tiny, thin, flexible tube (catheter) into your leg artery and thread it through the blood vessels. The surgeon uses X-rays and other imaging techniques to guide the catheter to the area of your body that needs treatment. This innovative technique allows the surgeon to provide treatment for neurological conditions with only a tiny incision, which can mean less risk of complications and a shorter recovery.
Norton Neuroscience Institute combines years of experience with a commitment to offering the most innovative treatment, including advanced endovascular neurosurgery techniques. Norton is at the forefront of these emerging technologies, making them available for the first time to patients in Louisville and Southern Indiana. These procedures include complex aneurysm coiling through microsurgery, arteriovenous malformation resection, carotid endarterectomy, embolization and frameless noninvasive stereotactic radiosurgery.
As co-directors of the cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery program at Norton Neuroscience Institute, Shervin R. Dashti, M.D., Ph.D., and Tom L. Yao, M.D., lead a team of nationally recognized providers who specialize in the latest endovascular therapy techniques. In addition to performing these advanced procedures, Drs. Dashti and Yao have completed extensive training in and performed many traditional open neurosurgeries.
More patients from Louisville and Southern Indiana seek treatment from Norton Neuroscience Institute’s nationally recognized neurologists and neurosurgeons than any other provider in the area.
