Dr. Philippe Edmond Gailloud is an Associate Professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, Department of Neurology and Department of Neurological Surgery. He serves as Director of the Division of Interventional Neuroradiology, Director of the Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology Program and Co-Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Pediatric Neurovascular Diseases.
Among his main areas of specialization are the development of interventional techniques, the percutaneous treatment of brain, spinal cord and spine lesions, and the anatomy and embryology of the cerebral vasculature. Besides the diagnosis and treatment of cerebrovascular diseases in adult patients, Dr. Gailloud also focuses on the management of neurovascular disorders in children.
Dr. Gailloud received his medical degree from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, in 1991, and completed his residency in diagnostic and interventional radiology at Geneva University Hospital in 1998. He completed a research fellowship in morphology at the University of Geneva in 1994, and clinical fellowships in diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology at Johns Hopkins. He joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2000.
Dr. Gailloud has published more than 160 peer-reviewed scientific publications and 20 book chapters on a wide range of topics related to diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology.
