5 out of 5 stars

One of the best medical visits I have had in my life. The care received was genuine and alleviated all my concerns. Having seen 4 doctors that had not known what they were speaking about, this visit was a much needed reassurance.

A knowledgeable and caring physician. Several appointments with him and he always listens and never hurries through the visit. I would give him 10 out of 5 stars!

Dr. Kureshi was kind, understanding and thoughtful. We agreed on a conservative plan to start my treatment for a complicated chronic back injury. We agreed surgery would be the last option, if all else failed.

Dr Kuershi is everything you would hope for in a neurosurgeon. I did not have a surgery because he was willing to listen and look at the big picture. A complicated case with multiple overlapping issues. He was not in a hurry to do surgery which others were. He took interest in my issues that were unrelated to his specialty. He referred me to 2 other specialists which were both very good. He is friendly, a good listener, does not jump to conclusions, compassionate, knowledgeable and confident without being arrogant. He also gave me adequate time to thoroughly go thru my extensive medical history. I consider him an asset to my care team and the neurosurgeon of choice for my future needs. I had seen 3 others prior and he definitely stands apart.

Bio

We are talking about a less invasive surgical advancement when it comes to treating patients with hemorrhagic strokes.

The technology allows doctors to remove blood clots from the brain that could not be removed before.

Dr. Inam Kureshi, a Neurosurgeon and Chief of Neurosurgery at Hartford Hospital.

Q. First, explain to our viewers what a hemorrhagic stroke is…

A. A hemorrhagic stroke is a type of stroke that occurs when a blood vessel in the brain suddenly begins to leak into the brain tissue or its surrounding structures. It can cause anything from a severe headache to life-threatening coma and death. 30% of patients who suffer a hemorrhagic stroke will die due to its severe neurological effects.

Q. The device is called the “Artemis Neuro Evacuation Device” …explain how this works?

A. This is a newly designed minimally invasive suction device that is inserted through a small slender endoscope which is then used to suction the blood out of the brain in the least traumatic fashion. If it is used correctly, it can often remove a large blood clot from deep in the brain through a small incision and bur hole without causing damage to surrounding structures. Not all patients with hemorrhagic strokes will be candidates for this procedure.

Q. What was typically done for patients with hemorrhagic strokes prior to this new technology?

A. Typically, most patients who suffer a hemorrhagic stroke are treated medically which involves them being closely monitored in a neurological ICU for BP control, brain swelling and further bleeding to try to limit the secondary effects that causes further neurological injury. The only other invasive option was to perform a large craniotomy which was extremely invasive and has not shown significant benefit over medical treatment.

Q. You have performed a number of cases since it was introduced at Hartford Hospital in November…how have patients done with this type of surgery?

A. We have done five procedures so far since November 2019. Most of the patients have done well but unfortunately one patient did succumb to a complication unrelated to the procedure. As you can understand, many of these patients come to the hospital in critical condition and oftentimes this is the only procedure that can be offered to improve their quality of life. The other four patients that had this procedure were discharged to acute rehab with a much shorter length of stay in the hospital when compared to those who have not had the procedure.
