He is a senior member of the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery. He is a proctor for various newer technologies used in the treatment of brain aneurysms and AVMs.

Dr.Ghodke is a highly experienced endovascular surgeon with expertise in minimally invasive approaches to neurological disorders, having done these for 20 years. His training includes residency and fellowship training in India and the United States and specialized training in Paris, France.

Patient Care Philosophy

"I am very pleased to be part of a multi-disciplinary team collaboration between the Department of Radiology and the Department of Neurological Surgery. This way we can offer patients a comprehensive evaluation and tailor-made solutions for complex neurovascular diseases.

I especially like to work with patients who are actively involved in their care because some of the life-threatening conditions we treat like brain aneurysms require active participation by the patients in risk reduction and have a strict follow-up protocol.

It is extremely gratifying to perform some of these life-saving procedures in patients with acute strokes and brain hemorrhages and see them go back to being healthy and neurologically intact."
