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.
Torrance Memorial’s affiliation with the neurology and neurosurgery
team at Cedars-Sinai - which is ranked among the best hospitals in the
nation for neurology and neurosurgery care by
U.S. News and World Report - means that our patients have access to some of the nation’s top
doctors, the most promising clinical trials, and the latest and best treatments.
In collaboration with Cedars-Sinai neurologists and neurosurgeons, Torrance
