The Marcus Stroke and Neuroscience Center at Grady Memorial Hospital announced the addition of two Interventional Neurologists. Dr. Rishi Gupta and Dr. Raul Nogueira, Visiting Associate Professors with Emory School of Medicine in Neurology and Stroke, are both acclaimed neurologists with specialties in Endovascular Neurosurgery, Neurocritical Care and Interventional Neuroradiology.
Dr. Gupta comes to Grady from Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he served as Assistant Professor of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Radiology and worked in the Vanderbilt Stroke Center. Prior to Vanderbilt, Dr. Gupta worked at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation where he was on staff at the Cerebrovascular Center working in Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology and served as director of the Vascular Neurology Fellowship Program.
Dr. Raul Nogueira spent the past eleven years at Massachusetts General Hospital working and training with the Harvard Medical School. There he completed his residency in Neurology, a fellowship in Neurocritical Care and Stroke, and a fellowship in Endovascular Neurosurgery and Interventional Neuroradiology. Academically, he served as Assistant Professor of Neurology for Harvard Medical School.
“Combining the talents of these doctors with our team, technology and state-of-the-art design of the center enables Grady to advance its already strong care for stroke patients,” says Dr. Michael R. Frankel, Professor of Neurology, Emory University School of Medicine, and Director of the Marcus Stroke & Neuroscience Center for the Grady Health System. “Drs. Gupta and Nogueira are at the forefront of their profession and their unique talents are an invaluable asset to the entire Southeast region, an area of the country more prone to strokes than any other.”
Grady’s Marcus Stroke and Neuroscience Center also welcomed Brenda Miller, nurse clinician and vascular neurologists Dr. Aaron Anderson and Dr. Samir Belagaje.
