The CINN Treatment Plan
Welcome to the website for the Chicago Institute of Neurosurgery pornochacha and Neuroresearch (CINN) Neurovascular and Stroke Intervention Program. We hope that the information presented on this website will provide you valuable information in better understanding the uniqueness of our team and the services we offer.
CINN’s Neurovascular xnxx and Stroke Intervention Program offers innovative approaches to the treatment of cerebrovascular disorders either by navigating the body’s blood vessels with a catheter; through open surgical techniques; with the use of stereotactic radiosurgery, or a combination thereof. Since CINN has significant expertise in both surgical and endovascular procedures, patients seeking care at CINN can be assured they will receive the most appropriate treatment given their specific facts and circumstances.
The CINN Neurovascular and Stroke Intervention Program specializes in the treatment of patients suffering from vascular diseases such as, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVM), carotid cavernous fistula, carotid stenosis, cerebrovascular ischemia (stroke), and vasospasm. Our program brings together the expertise of the most experienced fellowship-trained endovascular neurosurgeon in Chicago with new technology, including:
new stents designed xvideos specifically for the brain
coils that are coated with biologically active material designed to create scar and connective tissue within the aneurysm to enhance the healing process
carotid stenting with distal protection devices
hydrocoils that allow increased packing of cerebral aneurysms
clot retrieval devices for the management of acute strokes
Software that allows for the visualization and quantification of blood flow in the head and neck completely non-invasively
Combining breakthrough care with efficient case management and resolution
Work injuries and worker’s compensation cases present a unique set of challenges…not just for employees, employers and insurance providers, but for healthcare professionals as well. At CINN, we combine renowned medical knowledge and skills with exceptional case management expertise to bring work injury cases to their swiftest, most positive and most practical resolutions.
World-class work injury care
CINN is home to one of the largest neurological and spine-related work injury programs in the greater Chicago area, and our proven protocols encompass the entire recovery process. Our treatment plan begins with the gathering and documentation of objective findings and analysis of subjective information, leading to the pinpointing of a clearly defined, work-related cause. The core of the program is our team of highly experienced neurological specialists in physiatry, neurology and neurosurgery.
Closely coordinated case management
At CINN we understand the objectives of the case manager. To this end, our protocols are based on providing the most appropriate care and the most efficient allocation of resources. Our focus is on rapid case resolution, and our methodology calls for timely and complete communication with our case manager partners. To further enhance case coordination, we provide a network of resources that is comprehensive and easily navigable. Our physicians meet weekly in conference to review complex spine cases.
“ It’s hard to find quality neuro care in smaller communities. Since CINN has brought its expertise to our area, now leading-edge neuro care is available to our patients who’ve been injured on their job.”

Integrated one-stop resource
In most cases, treatment begins with triage from experienced physiatrists. Following triage, we offer world-class medical care in all appropriate disciplines and protocols, including acute and chronic care, surgery with an emphasis on minimally invasive procedures, and a conservative approach that proposes non-surgical solutions whenever possible. We provide expertise in injection therapy, endoscopic spine surgery, intradiscal thermal catheter therapy and vertebroplasty. We were one of the first groups in the state to perform disc replacement surgery with an artificial disc. For long-term pain control, implantable spine devices, such as morphine pumps and dorsal column stimulators, are available through our team of physicians.
CINN also provides complete rehabilitation services with experienced specialists in work conditioning, functional capacity evaluation, and occupational and physical therapy.
Easy, convenient access
The extensive CINN network offers convenient access from anywhere in the Chicago area, plus fully integrated system-wide treatment options and coordinated problem solving. Many work injury patients come to the network through referral to a CINN doctor. For non-referral cases, our case manager dedicated toll free number is designed to provide fast initial access to the CINN system.
