The neurovascular and neurointervention specialists at Torrance Memorial Medical Center’s Lundquist Neurosciences Institute provide comprehensive care for a full range of conditions that affect the blood vessels of the brain and spine. Our surgeons use the latest techniques to deliver minimally invasive care for strokes, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), carotid artery disease, and other neurovascular conditions.

What is Neurovascular Surgery and Neurointervention?

Neurovascular surgery and neurointervention diagnose and treat conditions that affect the blood vessels of the brain and spine with specialized tools that are inserted into your blood vessel with a thin, flexible tube called a catheter.

Neurovascular surgery and neurointervention are often used as minimally invasive alternatives to open surgery. Our surgeons use advanced imaging technology — such as 3D angiographic imaging or computed tomography (CT) scans — to guide the catheter to the correct site, identify problems, and provide effective treatment.
