Dr. Loy's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Loy "Quality of Care RIA Neurovascular strives to care for each patient like family. Our goal is to provide knowledgeable, safe, effective, and ultra-minimally invasive cost conscious care. We use a multi-disciplinary approach to offer each patient the best treatment options. Two surgeons often work together on complex cerebrovascular cases. This routine practice of utilizing four expert hands minimizes complications. No students or doctors-in-training participate in the care of patients. I am passionate about about advancing NeuroInterventional Radiology through research and compassionate care. I enjoy providing life-saving surgeries in a safe but rapid manner via ultra-minimally invasive treatment for: Cerebral Aneurysms AVMs Dural Fistula Carotid and Cerebral Vascular Stenosis Brain Tumor Embolizations Acute Stroke Tinnitus Leaders in Acute Stroke ESCAPE and MR CLEAN, two recently published stroke studies, emphasize the importance of rapid intervention in the patient with acute ischemic stroke. As part of a comprehensive stroke team, we work quickly to return blood flow to the part of the brain affected by stroke with the goal to alleviate and minimize the affects of stroke. Research RIA Neurovascular is the leading research group for stroke and cerebral aneurysms in the Rocky Mountain Region. We are invited to participate in cutting-edge National and International research studies. This allows us to offer the most progressive technologies and devices to our patients. For a complete list of our past and current research trials please visit our our website. "
