Clinical Services at Rush Center for Neuroendovascular Surgery

Rush University Medical Center in Chicago provides innovative solutions for treating complex brain and spinal cord vascular diseases that may have required open surgery in the past. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians at the Rush Center for Neuroendovascular Surgery use minimally invasive procedures to gain access within arteries and veins to treat diseases that affect the brain and spine, such as stroke and aneurysms, resulting in shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times. Our mission is to provide the very best care for our patients.

The Rush Center for Neuroendovascular Surgery is currently one of the only hopsitals in Illinois and one of only seven medical centers in the United States with the ability to offer treatement with the latest technology callled Pipeline Embolization Device (PED).

Services

Physicians at the center come from different training backgrounds and have specialized fellowship training in the field of neuroendovascular surgery. Using minimally invasive technology — X-rays, contrast dye and catheter-based devices such as coils and stents — physicians at Rush perform approximately 800 neuroendovascular tests and procedures each year. The following are some of the conditions and procedures we manage:

  • Acute ischemic stroke
  • Arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
  • Carotid artery stenosis
  • Cerebral aneurysm
  • Cerebral vasospasm
  • Diagnostic cerebral angiography
  • Epistaxis
  • Fistulas
  • Intracranial stenosis
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Spinal angiography
  • Spinal arteriovenous malformations
  • Tumor embolization
  • Vertebroplasty

Clinical Team

Michael Chen, MD, Demetrius Lopes, MD, and Roham Moftakhar, MD, lead the neuroendovascular surgical team. Thanks to new technologies and devices, the neuroendovascular suite is equipped with the latest in advanced, three-dimensional imaging and interoperative software allowing surgeons to see the blood vessels and surrounding brain tissue in ways they could not before. In addition to treatment of acute stroke, the current system enhances existing neuroendovascular treatments of cerebrovascular diseases such as aneurysms, stenosis (narrowed arteries), and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs).
