Dr. Siker's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Siker "David A. Siker, MD Training: Neuro Radiology and Neurointervention Fellowship at Georgetown University Hospital Education: University of Florida and Carnegie Melon University Board Certification: American Board of Radiology Dr. David A. Siker completed his radiology residency and neurointerventional fellowship at Georgetown University Hospital and the National Institute of Health. He completed medical school at the University of Florida, and received his bachelors degree in electrical engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University. Dr. Siker was the first physician to bring neurointerventional therapies from the university setting to the community hospitals of Oregon and Southwest Washington in the late 1990's. He is the director of neurointerventional services for Legacy Healthcare Systems, based at Emanuel Hospital. Dr. Siker performs many of the latest advances in neuro-intervention, including aneurysm flow diversion with Pipeline, aneurysm stent/coiling, AVM/Tumor embolization, intracranial and carotid stenting. As director of Neurointerventional services, he runs the acute neurointervention team for emergent treatment of problems such as ruptured aneurysms and acute ischemic strokes. Besides neurointerventional therapy, Dr. Siker's other main focus is applying state of the art 3T MRI techniques such as CSF Flow analysis for Chiari 1 and Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, DTI (tractography) for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI), and MR neurography, and dynamic imaging for patients with issues of their spine or associated nerve roots. These techniques are used to capture nerve tract locations in the brain, subtle neurological abnormalities throughout the nervous system, and multi-positional images of the spine. "

The best I have ever met. Kept me informed. Of everything when my husband has an aneurysm on his frontal lobe. He had less then a five percent survival rate. That was fifteen years ago. He's still doing well today. I can't thank Dr Siker enough
