Dr. Vipul Gupta is one of the most experienced and reputed neurointerventionist in the country. Neurointervention (Interventional Neuroradiology) is a medical speciality in which minimally invasive diagnostic and intervention procedures for cerebrovascular disorders are performed under radiological guidance. It is somewhat similar to the treatment carried out in the heart by cardiologists, such as angioplasty or stent placement. This Field is also known as endovascular Neurosurgery or Interventional Neuroradiology.

Interventional Neuroradiology (Endovascular Neurosurgery) is a medical speciality in which minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for cerebrovascular disorders are performed under radiological guidance. It is somewhat similar to the treatment carried out in the heart by cardiologists, such as angioplasty or stent placement. In these procedures, very thin catheters or wires are placed through blood vessels in groin and are navigated in the blood vessels to the site of the abnormal vessels. This is followed by diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.

These procedures are done instead of open surgery and in some cases to supplement the conventional surgery. Since these procedures avoid open surgery, it leads to better outcomes and shorter recovery times. Neurointerventions play a crucial role in diagnosis and management of brain aneurysms, stenosis of arteries such as carotid arteries, arteriovenous malformations, acute ischaemic stroke.

My team consisting of three neurointerventionist are able to offer round the clock care for patients with acute ischemic stroke and brain hemorrhage. We work in close association with vascular neurosurgeon and neuoanaesthetist, who are able to provide 24/7 care and support service.


Advantages of Endovascular Neurosurgery / Interventional Neuroradiology

  • The endovascular approach ensures minimal injury to normal brain.
  • It has fewer complications, better outcome and ensures shorter hospital stay.
  • Enables treatment of diseases, which could not be treated in the past.
  • Acute stroke patients can be treated even many hours after the stroke.


Clinical Experience

He specializes interventional treatment in stroke such as Intracranial aneurysms embolization (coiling), ArterioVenous malformation (AVMs) embolization, tumour embolization, Angioplasty and stenting of arterial stenosis including carotid stenting, Intra-arterial Thrombolysis for stroke and Percutaneous spinal procedures such as vertebroplasty and other interventional procedures.
