Our Approach

If you or a loved one needs neurovascular surgery, the Neuroscience Center of Excellence  has an experienced team that includes a nationally renowned endovascular neurosurgeon trained in both open vascular and endovascular techniques.

The staff also includes neurologists and neurosurgeons (including endovascular specialists) with advanced training in stroke and other neurovascular diseases.

These professionals work together to determine the most effective treatment for each patient and deliver expert care for cerebral aneurysms, cerebral arteriovenous malformations, carotid stenosis, stroke, cerebral vascular insufficiency, and other cerebrovascular conditions.

The Neurovascular and Endovascular Center Offers:

  • A team of specialists who focus on stroke and aneurysm care and research
  • The latest diagnostic tests and technology, including a state-of-the-art bipanar angiography suite to identify and treat problems with blood vessels in the neck and brain 
  • Carotid artery stenting to avoid more invasive endarterectomy, or surgical removal of plaque in the carotid artery, when possible
  • Clipping of aneurysms, an open-skull procedure performed by a neurosurgeon who places a metal clip across the neck of the aneurysm
  • Endovascular coiling, a minimally invasive procedure that uses the body's arteries to deliver platinum coils which seal off blood flow into aneurysms
  • Endovascular glue embolization of arteriovenous malformations (a tangle of blood vessels in the brain) 
  • A Neurointensive Care Unit staffed by neurologists and neurosurgeons.
  • Augusta University Gamma Knife Center for noninvasive radiosurgery for cerebral malformations and other conditions
