Endovascular Neurosurgery Services
As the only endovascular neurosurgeon in the region, Dr. Maria Toledo ensures that patients have access to the latest techniques used to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions, such as brain aneurisms, ischemic strokes, cerebral and spinal vascular lesions, and arteriovenous malformations and fistulas.
An endovascular neurosurgeon is a surgeon who is specially trained to perform minimally-invasive procedures that combine the use of imaging technology, catheters and various clotting agents to treat diseases of the blood vessels of the brain and spine. Over the last several years, catheter techniques have become the treatment of choice for certain aneurysms because they involve less risk and faster recovery than open brain surgery.
Dr. Toledo specializes in endovascular, cerebrovascular and skull base neurosurgery. She has special medical interests in treating cerebral and spinal vascular lesions, either endovascularly or through a craniotomy. Vascular lesions include brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, arteriovenous fistulas, and ischemic strokes. She also has significant experience treating pituitary tumors, hemifacial spasm, trigeminal neuralgia, meningiomas and other brain tumors. Dr. Toledo has extensive experience in performing cerebral diagnostic angiograms to diagnose and plan treatment for suspected vascular lesions.
