Patient Center

Welcome to the SNIS Web site Patient Center! In this section, you will learn about the field of neurointervention, a specialty that relies on minimally invasive techniques that are transforming surgery and the way certain conditions in the brain and spine are treated.

For your reference, we have included descriptions of many of these conditions – including stroke, aneurysms and spinal compression fractures – and information on how associated neurointerventional therapies are performed. If you or a loved one is suffering with one of these conditions, check out our Physician Locator in order to determine if there is a physician trained in neurointervention in your area. By educating yourself and taking control of your health, you could have access to advanced treatments that yield positive surgical outcomes while providing such benefits as less pain, shorter recovery time and fewer complications.
