Alan R. Reeves, M.D.
Dr. Alan Reeves completed his neurointervential radiology fellowship at Yale University and now serves as the Director of Interventional Neuroradiology at The University of Kansas Hospital. He is also an active senior member of the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery. Dr. Reeves’ interventional radiology practice focuses primarily on conditions of the brain, head and neck, and spine. His fellowship training in diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology gives him a unique understanding of the complex anatomy and imaging appearances of multiple neurological conditions and diseases.
The field of interventional neuroradiology has seen exciting advances in the last several years, which Dr. Reeves has been involved such as treating complex intracranial aneurysms using flow-diversion technology.
This is now a common procedure at The University of Kansas Hospital. With his extensive experience with several neurologically advanced devices and procedures, Dr. Reeves serves as an educator for other physicians learning to use them within their practices.
Dr. Reeves daily practices include, but are not limited to treating unique, difficult vascular (dural A-V fistulas, AVM’s), biopsies of the head, neck, and spine, treating fractures of the spine with kyphoplasty, tumor embolization, performing a variety of basic non-neuro interventional radiology procedures, to interpreting MRI and CT scans.
Currently he is growing his practice with a focus on percutaneous sclerotherapy for hemangiomas and low-flow venolymphatic malformations. This procedure offers welcomed cosmetic and functional results for patients who have spent years seeking treatment for these lesions.
The University of Kansas Hospital was one of the first in the nation to achieve the Comprehensive Stroke Center designation, and Dr. Reeves serves on the multidisciplinary team treating patients with acute stroke. He utilizes the latest, most advanced endovascular tools to remove clots within the vessel and restore flow to the brain.
When Dr. Reeves is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. He enjoys watching baseball, boating, spending time with friends, and being outside.
