About Sean D. Lavine, MD


Dr. Lavine dedicates his practice exclusively to diseases associated with the cerebrovascular system and to those diseases treated with Endovascular Neurosurgical and Interventional Neuroradiological Procedures. He was among the first surgeons in the country to complete training in these procedures after completing neurosurgical training. His expertise is in the area of neurovascular pathology including such conditions as brain hemorrhage, brain aneurysms, brain and spinal cord arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), carotid and vertebral artery disease, and stroke.
