Capital Institute for Neurosciences offers fellowships in Endovascular Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery, following successful completion of a neurosurgery residency in an accredited program. The Stroke and Cerebrovascular Center of NJ is one of the largest referral centers for cerebrovascular emergencies in New Jersey, and features state of the art biplane imaging as well as a dedicated neurosurgical intensive care unit, and advanced imaging including CT perfusion.
