Cerebrovascular Fellowship

Cerebrovascular Fellowship

Swedish offers one- and two-year fellowships in cerebrovascular microsurgery and/or neuro-endovascular treatment. Applicants should be fully trained in neurosurgery.

The fellowship provides experience in the diagnosis and management of a wide range of cerebrovascular disorders, including cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), vascular neoplasm and Moyamoya disease. Fellows also gain experience in extracranial carotid and vertebral artery disorders, including carotid endarterectomy.

Additional surgical training is included at the Seattle Science Foundation, a state-of-the-art bioskills and tele-education center located immediately adjacent to the SNI outpatient clinic. At SSF, fellows have access to a skull base teaching laboratory and participate in ongoing hands-on courses in advanced skull-base surgical techniques. Training in stereotactic radiosurgery will occur at the Swedish Radiosurgery Center, one of the few facilities in the world to include side-by-side GammaKnife® and CyberKnife® devices.

Neurosurgeons at Swedish have access to the most advanced technologies and perform procedures in state-of-the-art operating and interventional suites.
