Nikhil K. Mehta, MD

Dr. Mehta is board-certified in Diagnostic Radiology and fellowship-trained in Neurointerventional Radiology, Vascular and Interventional Radiology, and Neuroradiology.  He specializes in minimally invasive endovascular treatments for complex neurovascular and vascular diseases. His training in both neurointervention and vascular intervention has been complementary and allows him to bring a unique perspective to each specialty.

Dr. Mehta earned his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Ohio, and went on to complete his internship at Akron General Hospital.  He continued his training at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago, where he completed his residency in Diagnostic Radiology.

Continued interest in neurovascular disorders and endovascular techniques led Dr. Mehta to complete three separate fellowship programs: Neuroradiology and Neurointerventional Radiology both at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and Vascular and Interventional Radiology at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. His Neurointerventional fellowship is one of a few that are CAST (Committee on Advanced Subspecialty Training) accredited.

Dr. Mehta loves to stay on the cutting edge of both neurointervention and interventional radiology.  He is currently involved in research using 3-D printing to model patient’s intracranial aneurysms in order to predict treatment response of the aneurysm after placement of the pipeline embolization device (PED).

His expertise in the field has prompted him to publish book chapters on the endovascular treatment of complex peripheral arteriovenous malformations (AVM), aortic aneurysms, intracranial aneurysms, and peripheral vascular disease (PVD).  “I am very interested in the treatment of PVD, carotid disease, aortic aneurysms, intracranial disease, and complex dural fistulas.  These diseases were traditionally treated with surgery, but with the continued evolution of minimally invasive techniques many patients can now go home within 24 hours of the procedure,” commented Dr. Mehta.

Dr. Mehta is certified by the American Board of Radiology and has contributed to articles in the Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery, Journal of Neurosurgery, Journal of Neurocritical Care, and the Journal of the American College of Radiology.

“I was drawn to Interventional and Vascular Consultants because of their patient-centric approach,” Dr. Mehta said. “Minimally invasive techniques continue to evolve and many clinicians and patients are not aware of what can be done with just a 1-2 mm incision!  IVC truly provides a platform to reach out to clinicians and patients for both education and patient empowerment; I am excited to be a part of that outreach.”
