Neuroradiology and Interventional Neuroradiology
At UT Health Tyler, a team of neuroradiologists and interventional neuroradiologists use minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat a range of disorders involving the brain, head, neck and spine. Specializing in the growing field of endovascular medicine (procedures done through blood vessels), they provide treatments that make neurosurgery safer or eliminate the need for surgery altogether.
Working closely with neurologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists, otolaryngologists (ENTs) and other specialists, the neuroradiology specialists at UT Health East Texas advance care and enhance life for thousands of East Texans each year.
UT Health Tyler’s interventional angiography suite is equipped for endovascular management of a range of neurological disorders. Our physicians use innovative technologies, such as 3D imaging, percutaneous therapies and the Penrumbra stroke system, to increase patient safety and reduce recovery time.

“The interventional neuroradiologists are very important to us. They can actually go in and cut off the blood supply to certain types of tumors, which makes surgery to remove them much safer for the patient.”
– Mark B. Renfro, MD, neurosurgeon
“There are very few centers even in Dallas or Houston that have dedicated interventional neuroradiologists who can coil aneurysms, embolize AVMs and tumors, and do cutting-edge procedures for our patients.”
– Thomas Grahm, MD, neurosurgeon
