Clinical Research Fellowship in Interventional Neuroradiology (INR)

You are here

The Department of Neurosurgery at Weill Cornell Medical College offers a clinical research fellowship in Interventional neuroradiology (INR), a relatively new field that combines advanced three-dimensional imaging techniques with endoscopic surgical procedures. INR specialists are neurosurgeons with advanced training in radiology who perform minimally invasive endoscopic techniques using high-tech imaging equipment to guide their work.

This two-year fellowship is under the direction of Dr. Athos Patsalides and recruits physicians who wish to participate in our clinical and experimental research. The clinical research is centered on patient outcomes, especially of the treatment of aneurysms, stroke, and intra-arterial chemotherapy. Our experimental research is centered on intra-arterial infusion with disruption of the blood-brain-barrier. 

The fellow will work as an integral part of the INR team at Weill Cornell, which specializes in:

  • Minimally invasive approaches to cerebrovascular conditions such as aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations of the brain and spine, and stroke.
  • Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty for the treatment of painful vertebral body fractures.
  • Pre-operative embolization to improve outcomes of surgery in brain and spinal tumors.
  • Intra-arterial chemotherapy of tumors of the eye (retinoblastoma), the brain, and the spine.
  • Treatment of superficial vascular malformations of the face and neck.
