This two-year Interventional Neuroradiology fellowship provides the unique opportunity to develop clinical and procedural skills in the neurointerventional suite within one of New England’s busiest stroke centers.
The program is dedicated to providing comprehensive training in both the diagnostic and treatment realms of care. Technical expertise is accomplished from the large volume of procedures coinciding with clinical application in the management of this patient group. The Co-Directors of the program are Dr. Martin Ollenschleger & Dr. Inam Kureshi. With over 600 endovascular & open cerebrovascular procedures performed annually, the Stroke Center of Hartford Hospital acts as a major referral center for endovascular and neurosurgical services from Connecticut and Massachusetts to eastern New York State. A dedicated faculty consists of neurointerventionalists, neurosurgeons, stroke neurologists and neuroradiologists.
The fellowship program consists of both didactic and clinical training at an 800 bed, tertiary referral care center. Hartford Hospital is New England’s first Joint Commission certified Comprehensive Stroke Center and a Level One trauma center, both served by two medical helicopters. In addition to diagnostic cerebral and spinal angiograms, a broad array of procedures are performed on a regular basis, including embolization of brain aneurysms, utilizing coil embolization or flow diversion techniques, arteriovenous malformations, dural arteriovenous fistulas and CNS / Head and Neck neoplasms. Endovascular therapy for acute ischemic stroke is performed on a high volume basis. Fellows also have the opportunity to become facile in interventional spine procedures, including percutaneous biopsy and vertebral augmentation. Procedures are performed in modern flat-panel biplane neurointerventional suites, offering state of the art 3-dimensional angiography and many advanced imaging and procedural guidance applications. Participation in clinical research by fellows is encouraged with two dedicated research rotations provided during the course of the two-year fellowship.
The program accepts applicants from both Diagnostic Radiology or Neurology residency training pathways. Neurosurgical applicants may apply to our Endovascular and Cerebrovascular fellowship program.
