Dr. Y. Pierre Gobin (back row, center) is the Director of Interventional Radiology at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center. The INR team includes neurosurgeons who specialize in radiology as well as anesthesiologists, RNs, and highly skilled technicians.

The Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center is proud of its world-class Interventional Neuroradiology Program, one of the few such programs in the world to offer a full team of specialists in this advanced discipline.  Under the direction of Dr. Y. Pierre Gobin, the Interventional Neuroradiology Program at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center performs advanced procedures every day, leading to better patient care, shorter hospital stays, and better outcomes.

Interventional neuroradiology (INR) combines advanced three-dimensional imaging techniques with endoscopic surgical procedures. INR specialists — neurosurgeons with advanced training in radiology — can perform minimally invasive endoscopic techniques using high-tech imaging equipment to guide their work.

At the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center, the Interventional Neuroradiology Program 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.
