Dr. Patel is involved in multiple multi-center studies, NIH and industry sponsored, that investigate treatments related to ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, new devices and new techniques. Some of his active studies include: the Penumbra Liberty trial investigating a new stent device for the treatment of cerebral aneurysms and an NIH trial site studying surgical treatment of cerebral hemorrhage.
The Brain Aneurysm Foundation’s Medical Advisory Board is composed of neurologists, neurosurgeons, and interventional neuroradiologists from around the United States and Canada working at some of the most prestigious medical facilities. These doctors provide continued expertise and support to the Foundation in a variety of ways.
Now celebrating 20 years of service, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation was established in 1994 in Boston, Massachusetts with a mission to promote early detection of brain aneurysms by providing knowledge and raising awareness of the signs, symptoms and risk factors; work with the medical communities to provide support networks for patients and families; as well as to further research that will improve patient outcomes and save lives.
