Interventional Neuroradiology Research Fellowship

The Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) Interventional NeuroRadiology (INR) Service offers a research fellowship that combines advanced three-dimensional imaging techniques with endoscopic surgical procedures. Our INR specialists are neurosurgeons with advanced neuroradiology training who perform minimally invasive endoscopic techniques using high-tech imaging equipment to guide their work.

This two-year fellowship under the direction of Dr. Athos Patsalides recruits physicians to participate in our clinical and experimental research. Clinical research is centered on patient outcomes, especially concerning aneurysm, stroke and intra-arterial chemotherapy treatment. Our experimental research is centered on intra-arterial infusion with disruption of the blood-brain barrier. 

Our fellows work as integral members of the WCM INR team, specializing in:

  • Minimally invasive approaches for cerebrovascular conditions including aneurysm, stroke and arteriovenous malformation of the brain and spine.
  • Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty for the treatment of painful vertebral body fractures.
  • Preoperative embolization to improve outcomes of brain and spine tumor surgery.
  • Intra-arterial chemotherapy for cerebral, spinal and ocular tumors (retinoblastomas).
  • Treatment for superficial vascular malformations of the face and neck.
