Healthcare Services and Programs
We are consistently among the first to use leading-edge neurovascular treatments and technologies.
Patients treated at OhioHealth hospitals have access to nationally known experts and the most advanced technology in the areas of neurology, neurosurgery, neurointerventional radiology and emergency medicine.
Our Leading-Edge Neurovascular Aneurysm Treatments
We are consistently among the first to use leading-edge neurovascular aneurysm treatments and technologies that include the following:
Brain aneurysm coil treatment: If it is determined during an angiogram that coils are necessary, neurointerventional radiologists deploy multiple coils in the affected area until progressive occlusion is achieved. The minimally invasive treatment can also be used after a rupture.
Advancements in aneurysm clipping: Our physicians use Integrated Neurovascular Fluorescence in aneurysm clipping. The technique allows the surgeon to view neurovascular blood flow, while still looking through the operative microscope, and immediately assess whether clipping of the aneurysm is complete or incomplete.
Onyx® liquid embolism: We use Onyx HD-500 in the treatment of a complex aneurysm. This minimally invasive treatment was granted a Humanitarian Device Exemption by the FDA. Riverside Methodist Hospital also uses Onyx 18 and Onyx 34, which are FDA approved for the treatment of vascular malformations.
Our Leading-Edge Neurovascular Stroke Treatments
Our neurointerventional radiologists play a critical role in the care and treatment of stroke patients, using a variety of leading-edge treatments.
- We were first in Ohio and second in the country to use the Solitaire FR Revascularization Device, an innovation that doubles the chances of surviving a severe stroke compared to the next best option.
- We were first in the world to use the next generation of the device, the Solitaire 2, and we're using other leading-edge systems, such as the Trevo II clot retriever.
MERCI Clot Retriever is a corkscrew-like coil our neurointerventional radiologists use to remove an ischemic stroke clot, oftentimes instantly reversing the course of a stroke.
Comprehensive Stroke Care and the Stroke Network
OhioHealth treats the most stroke patients in central Ohio, more than all the other area hospitals combined.
OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital is certified by The Joint Commission as a Comprehensive Stroke Center. Grant Medical Center and Doctors Hospital are certified as Primary Stroke Centers.
Our physicians are often the first in the world to research new stroke treatments through clinical trials, allowing our patients access to the most leading-edge stroke treatments and prevention techniques available.

Among the First to Use Leading-Edge Neurovascular Treatments
Our neurointerventional radiologists play a critical role in the care and treatment of neurovascular stroke and aneurysm patients. We are consistently among the first to use leading-edge neurovascular treatments and technologies that have included brain aneurysm coil treatment and Solitaire and Trevo stroke treatments.
Additionally, we have three new IR suites in the OhioHealth Neuroscience Center equipped with the latest technology to treat brain aneurysms, clot removal and more. The new suites are in close proximity to the Emergency Department to expedite care and save time and brain.

Stroke Network Locations in Ohio
The OhioHealth Stroke Network is the first partnership for stroke treatment and research of its kind in Ohio. It helps maximize efficiency in stroke care, while minimizing the need to transfer a stroke patient elsewhere for specialized care. Learn More
Meet Gloria B.
Under treatment for chronic pain, Gloria B. didn't think anything of the pain and pressure she was experiencing in her head. If anything, she thought it might be her medication.
