Cerebrovascular & Endovascular Neurosurgery

The Cerebrovascular Center of the Department of Neurological Surgery at New Jersey Medical School is led by Dr. Priyank Khandelwal. This multi-disciplinary service works in cooperation with Neuroradiology, the Section of Vascular Neurology, and the Section of Vascular Surgery to efficiently evaluate and treat, both operatively and non-operatively, patients with diseases of the blood vessels supplying the brain and spinal cord including:

  • Aneurysms
  • Arteriovenous Malformations (AVM)
  • Vascular Tumors
  • Extracranial cerebral vascular disease
  • Intercranial artherosclerosis
  • Epistaxis
  • Spinal Cord AVM/AVF
  • Pre-operative embolization of brain and spinal tumors

Endovascular Neurosurgery

This multi-disciplinary service offers both diagnostic and interventional capabilities for vascular pathologies of the brain and spinal cord. The center specializes in endovascular treatment of aneurysms, AVMs (both spinal and cranial), intracranial and extracranial atherosclerosis, as well as non-vascular procedures, such as vertebroplasty/ kyphoplasty. There is very close cooperation with the Neurology Stroke team to offer 24-hour interventional capability in support of our Comprehensive Stroke Center. The service also offers a two-year fellowship in which we offer training to neurosurgeons, radiologists, and neurologists that have met their individual section prerequisites.
