Dr. Ambooj Tiwari is a Neurointerventional Surgeon & vascular neurologist at Pacific Neuroscience Institute and John Wayne Cancer Institute, Santa Monica, CA. As a neurointerventional surgeon who specializes in using minimally invasive endovascular techniques to treat vascular diseases of the brain and spine. His expertise specifically deals with neurological-neurosurgical emergencies like strokes, subarachnoid hemorrhages as well as intracranial hemorrhages. He also specializes in elective treatment of vascular lesions in the brain and spine including arterial and venous stenoses, pre-operative therapy of intracranial or spinal tumors, cerebral aneurysms and vascular malformations. As a trained vascular neurologist with partial training in critical care and neuroradiology, he is also interested in medical management as well as development of new diagnostic and post-operative management protocols for neurovascular diseases. As both a clinician as well as epidemiologist-biostatistician he is also keen in using the power of scientific evidence to further the field of neurovascular science.
Dr. Tiwari trained at Wayne State University and Detroit Medical Center which included residency/chief residency in Neurology, Vascular Neurology fellowship and a multi-institutional Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology fellowship serving five medical systems in the county areas of Wayne, Oakland and Genesee serving a combined population of 4 million. Thereafter he moved to Brooklyn, NY as an academic Neurointerventional surgeon and vascular neurologist with the NYU School of Medicine specifically serving the NYU Langone Health-Brooklyn campus. During his work there, he was also awarded the NY Senate award for healthcare service to the community.
Dr. Tiwari has presented and published extensively nationally and internationally. He has been involved in various original researches specifically in stroke therapeutics. During his academic tenure at Wayne State University and New York University, he was co-Principal investigator at multiple national clinical trials including the earliest thrombectomy trials for emergent large vessel occlusion. He has also been invited to talk at various forums including CME lectures, national conferences, podcasts and radio shows about the clinical and research work he has been doing. His current work is focused on precision care of the stroke patient as well as novel therapeutics for neurovascular diseases.
