Dr. Donald Frei, MD
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 Brain AVMs Dural Fistula Carotid and Cerebral Vascular Stenosis Brain Tumor Embolizations Acute Stroke Pulsatile 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 are the leaders in research 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.

in Berthoud Co. 80513 |
I would recommend Dr Frei to any one. He performed a minimal invasive procedure for a cerebral aneurysm that I had (a giant aneurysm) and everything went wonderful and I have had no problems. Procedure performed one morning and the next morning I was released and sent home. Dr Frei is a very passionate Dr. and cares a great deal about his patients. If you need his type of service look no further. Ken
