Interventional Neuroradiology Service
Dr. Charles Matouk, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and Diagnostic Radiology, is a cerebrovascular neurosurgeon with expertise in the open and endovascular treatment of vascular disorders of the brain and spinal cord. He completed his certification examination in neurosurgery from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in 2009. He then completed a 2-year clinical fellowship in Endovascular Neurosurgery / Interventional Neuroradiology at the University of Toronto under the mentorship of Drs. Karel ter Brugge and Tom Marotta. He has special interest in treating brain aneurysms, vascular malformations of the brain and spinal cord, carotid occlusive disease, and acute stroke syndromes. He also has an interest in general neurosurgery. In addition, he completed a Vascular Biology Research Fellowship studying transcriptional paradigms in human endothelial cells in health and disease.
Dr. Matouk's translational research is focused on advanced imaging of the critically ill neurovascular patient. His efforts are aimed at improving the safety and quality of care rendered to patient's with cerebrovascular disease. These are facilitated by the use of the IMRIS Neurovascular Room - a combined neurovascular operating theater, bi-plane angiography suite, and 3-T MRI - a platform unique to the New York City / southern New England region. This infrastructure allows us to rapidly translate research protocols for the best care of our patients.
