Leading International Neuroradiologst Sundeep Mangla, M.D., Joins Neurological Surgery, P.C.

Leading interventional neuroradiologist Sundeep Mangla, M.D., has joined Neurological Surgery, P.C. (NSPC), one of the Northeast’s largest and most comprehensive multiple-subspecialty neurosurgical private practices.  Dr. Mangla is a resident of Manhattan.

Physicians practicing interventional neuroradiology, also known as neurointerventional radiology or endovascular neuroradiology, use minimally invasive approaches to treat vascular (blood vessel) disorders of the central nervous system.

Dr. Mangla’s clinical practice focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of complex cerebrovascular diseases including hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke, brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and neoplasms (tumors).  He has special expertise in acute stroke intervention, endovascular therapy of aneurysms, AVM’s and neoplasms, and extra-cranial/intra-cranial angioplasty and stenting of cerebrovascular occlusive disease (blockages of the brain’s blood vessels).

Dr. Mangla joins one of the region’s top teams for treating cerebrovascular disease:  interventional neuroradiologist John Pile-Spellman, M.D., F.A.CR. and endovascular neurosurgeon Jonathan L. Brisman, M.D.

“Dr. Mangla is a leading interventional neuroradiologist, and he adds depth to our already strong team,” said Michael H. Brisman, M.D., F.A.C.S., CEO of Neurological Surgery, P.C. “His appointment adds to our capability to handle additional complex cases, and provides further illustration that we are able to provide highly specialized university-level care in a convenient, community-based private practice.”

Dr. Mangla also serves as Director of Interventional Neuroradiology and Director of Research in the Department of Radiology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center.  He holds an appointment of Associate Professor of Radiology, Neurosurgery, and Neurology in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, SUNY Downstate School of Graduate Studies.

“I have known Drs. Pile-Spellman, Jonathan Brisman and other members of the NSPC practice for many years, and I have the utmost respect for them all,” said Dr. Mangla.  “I could not pass up this opportunity to work with this group of leading clinicians.”

Dr. Mangla is board certified in radiology with a Certificate of Advanced Qualification in Neuroradiology. He has been a clinical and academic leader and researcher in the field for the last 15 years. He is one of the early pioneers of treating intracranial vascular diseases with endovascular techniques, and has served as principal or co-investigator for a number of multi-center clinical trials.  He is also known for being a committed teacher, having developed core curricula, mentored and trained numerous students, residents and fellows from all disciplines in the fields of stroke, neurovascular disease, and diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology.

Dr. Mangla completed his B.S., M.D. and diagnostic radiology training at Northeast Ohio Universities College of Medicine. He went on to pursue fellowships in diagnostic neuroradiology, interventional radiology and endovascular neurosurgery, completing subspecialty clinical and academic training at the University of Southern California, the Yale University School of Medicine, and the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics from 1997 – 2000.

He previously served as an Assistant Professor of Interventional Neuroradiology in Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, where he also held a joint appointment and worked actively to develop the Neurointerventional Program at Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
