Interventional Neuroradiology

Florida Hospital is the only hospital system in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties to have interventional neuroradiologists on staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Interventional neuroradiology (INR) at Florida Hospital Orlando offers treatment of cerebrovascular disorders, such as brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and stroke.

INR involves minimally invasive approaches to the treatment of a wide variety of diseases of the brain, head and neck, and spine. Many of these diseases are vascular diseases including acute stroke, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), cavernous carotid fistulas, atherosclerotic stenosis and vasospasm. With minimal invasion the procedure offers many benefits to patients including reduced risk, pain, and recovery time.

A relatively new treatment method, INR involves the use of progressive imaging techniques to place catheters through arteries or veins to treat neuroendovascular disorders. INR can also be used to reduce blood loss from surgery for certain brain and spine tumors and potentially reduce the neurological damage from stroke. INR also uses the minimally invasive technique of vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty to treat some compression fractures associated with osteoporosis.
