Our team

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.
