Innovation And Experience Performing Cerebrovascular Procedures

The treatment of blood vessel disorders, such as aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and stroke, has seen many advancements over recent decades. At Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates, this progress not only includes pioneering less invasive endovascular techniques, but also improving upon traditional open surgery for cerebrovascular disorders.

“At our practice, we can treat every condition related to cerebrovascular disorders,” said neurosurgeon Scott Wait, MD. “We don’t have to send patients away for care. In fact, we get patient referrals from other academic centers.”

Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates has a team of seven neurosurgeons with extensive experience delivering a multidisciplinary approach to cerebrovascular care for adult and pediatric patients.

“We provide comprehensive treatment options including surgery, endovascular procedures, imaging and rehabilitation therapy, if needed,” said neurosurgeon Vinay Deshmukh, MD, FACS. “No other neurosurgery group offers that level of comprehensive care from the start of an illness through recovery.”

Cerebrovascular Conditions Treated Include:
• Brain aneurysms
• Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
• Blocked arteries
• Cavernous malformations
• Stroke
