Our team consists of specialists from the services Interventional Neuroradiology, Neurosurgery and Neurology. All the doctors have been specially trained in the field of neurovascular disorders. Structured consultation and a joint consultation offers the opportunity to improve our knowledge, share experiences and care for the individual patient to improve. Unlike general services in a hospital, our daily activities are completely and specifically focused on the treatment of neurovascular disorders.
The NVCA is led by Prof Dr M Voormolen and Dr T van der Zijden, interventional neuroradiologists, Dr T Menovsky, neurosurgeon and Dr. I Baar, neurologist. Every week we have structured consultations and we see patients with neurovascular disorders on our combined neurovascular neurosurgery consultation. We supervise assistants, organize lectures and speak at the (inter-) national conferences.
Our team works with a Neuro Intensive Care Section, headed by Prof Dr Ph Jorens. Specialist neuro-anesthesiologists supervise the various interventions under general anesthesia. We would like to introduce the doctors of our team.
