Acute Stroke

Acute Stroke

Strokes are medical emergencies, requiring fast and efficient intervention to minimize damage to the brain. The neurointerventional radiologists of ARA Health are an integral part of the treatment process when a patient presents with a stroke in the emergency room, working quickly with the care team to assess the stroke and, in many cases, administer clot-busting drugs. In fact, our neurointerventionalists were instrumental in forming the only comprehensive stroke center in western North Carolina. We're at the forefront of our field, and we're here for you 24/7/365.

Brain Aneurysm

Brain Aneurysm

Most aneurysms are asymptomatic and not particularly dangerous; however, a ruptured aneurysm can be life-threatening. The physicians of ARA Health are highly trained in the most advanced techniques, able to repair aortic and arterial aneurysms to avoid risk of rupture.

Chronic Subdural Hematomas

Spinal Compression Fracture

Spinal Compression Fracture

When spinal bones and vertebrae become soft and weak, compression fractures can occur. They can be quite painful, causing severe back pain that comes on suddenly or worsens gradually over time. Fortunately, the neurointerventionalists at ARA Health are able to repair compression fractures and improve patients' symptoms and mobility through minimally invasive outpatient procedures.
