Dorothea Altschul is a neurointerventionalist with focus on acute neurological disease. She trained in Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology in a two year clinical fellowship at NY Presbyterian Hospital (Columbia College of Physicians & Surgeons) in New York. Prior to that she completed a clinical and research fellowship in Vascular Neurology with focus on acute stroke and critical care neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham & Women's Hospital (Harvard Medical School) in Boston. She finished her neurology training at Montefiore Hospital, Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, and a two year post-doctoral fellowship in Neuroepidemiology at the National Institute on Aging (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, where she studied the cause and effects of cognitive dysfunction in the elderly. She is a member of the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery, the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology, and the American Academy of Neurology. Dr. Altschul is board-certified in neurology and vascular neurology. Her clinical and research interests include minimally-invasive imaging-guided therapies for the treatment of vascular disorders of the brain and spinal cord, such as various types of acute strokes, cerebral (brain) aneurysms,arteriovenous malformations or fistulas, dural arteriovenous fistulas, cerebral or carotid atherosclerosis, cerebral hemorrhage, carotid stenosis, cerebrovascular disease, intracranial atherosclerosis, pediatric aneurysms, and vascular malformations. Dr. Altschul performs endovascular procedures such as cerebral and spinal angiography (angiograms), vascular embolizations, coiling procedures, intracranial angioplasty/stenting, carotid angioplasty/stenting, tumor embolizations, and acute stroke procedures (intraarterial thrombolysis, mechanical thrombectomy).
