The Neurointerventional or Endovascular Neurosurgical services are offered by the Neuroradiology and Neurosurgery departments of the Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute. WVU Medicine’s J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in North Central West Virginia to offer advanced, minimally invasive treatment for:

  • Brain aneurysms
  • Strokes
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Head, neck and spine disorders

Using neuroimaging, our physicians create individualized treatment plans designed to help each patient have the best outcome possible. Our treatment protocols are based on the latest evidence, including research conducted at our own medical center. The neurointerventional team is available around the clock for emergency stroke and aneurysm care, striving to begin treatment as quickly as possible.

Our endovascular approach to care helps patients avoid major open surgery and recover faster than traditional neurosurgeries. Our patients often return home the day after their procedure and can return to their normal activities within just a few days.
