- Our Team
The Division of Neurointervention at Froedtert Hospital and the Medical College of Wisconsin is home to four neurointerventionalists with training in Neurology, Neurocritical Care, Vascular Neurology, and Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology. The group provides consultation, evaluation, and follow-up for patients with a broad range of neurovascular conditions including those amenable to minimally invasive image-guided and catheter-based therapies. Located in Wisconsin’s largest academic health center, The Milwaukee Regional Medical Center, the Division of Neurointervention has become a leading referral center for neurovascular care in the Midwest. Extensive participation in landmark national clinical trials has positioned the Division of Neurointervention at the forefront of emerging therapies that are advancing the field.

- Clinical Trials
Clinical research is essential to advancing healthcare by defining efficacy in treatments and discovering safer and more cost-effective methods of delivering care to patients. The members of the Division of Neurointervention at Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin share this vision and strive to be leaders in clinical trials. The Division of Neurointervention has participated in design and enrollment in numerous national clinical trials evaluating neuroendovascular therapies and devices and has been a top enrollment center in several multi-center randomized trials.
Current enrolling trials include:
The THERAPY Trial: The Randomized, Concurrent Controlled Trial to Assess the Penumbra System’s Safety and Effectiveness in the Treatment of Acute Stroke: Keywords: Stroke, Intervention
Penumbra Separator 3D US 510k Trial: Keywords: Stroke, Intervention
ACE: An Aneurysm Coiling Efficiency Study of the Penumbra Coil 400 System: Keywords: Aneurysm, Coiling, Intervention
DIAS-4: A randomized, double-blind, parallel-group placebo-controlled phase III study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of desmoteplase in subjects with acute ischemic stroke: Keywords: Stroke, Intervention
