Aditya S. Pandey, M.D. achieved his Bachelors of Science in Biological and Engineering Sciences from the Washington University in St. Louis.  He obtained his Doctorate of Medicine from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.  He then gained training in neurological surgery with sub-specialty training in microsurgical and endovascular treatment of cerebrovascular disorders under the guidance of Dr. Robert Rosenwasser at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Dr. Pandey specializes in treating individuals who have blood vessel related diseases of the brain and spinal cord (e.g., aneurysms, AVM, stroke, fistulas, cavernomas, bleeding within the brain, etc.) as well as practicing general neurosurgery (spinal disorders, brain tumors, and traumatic brain injury). Dr. Pandey is able to perform the latest techniques to treat stroke using stent thrombectomy technique as well as treating the most complex of aneurysms using flow diversion technology.

He is one of two neurosurgeons in the Ann Arbor region who are trained to perform both open surgeries and endovascular radiological procedures when treating brain blood vessel related diseases. His research interests include: understanding opportunities to improve clinical outcomes, analyzing large databases to understand how systems of care be designed, development of an ultrasound based technology to treat those with bleeding in the brain, development of a clot buster technology to remove clots from blood vessels of the body and brain, and evaluating the role of deferoxamine in improving outcome in those with ruptured brain aneurysm. His research interests have led to numerous federal grants as well as over 150 peer-reviewed publications Dr. Pandey is currently the surgical director of our Comprehensive Stroke Center.

  • Johns Hopkins University
    MISTIE III Health and Human Services
    Goal: To evaluate the role of intra-clot delivery of tPA via image guided placement of a ventriculostomy catheter in improving ICH evacuation and related improvement in cerebral edema and clinical outcome. 
    Role: Co-I
  • Vanderbilt University Medical Center
    Framing Eighteen Coils in Cerebral Aneurysms Trial (FEAT)
    Goal: To compare angiographic outcomes in patients receiving 0.014-0.0155” platinum framing and filling coils followed by further aneurysm filling and finishing with less than 0.014” bare platinum coils (as deemed appropriate by the treating physician), versus those treated solely with coils less than 0.014”. We hypothesize that angiographic occlusion at follow-up imaging will be more frequent in patients receiving 0.014-0.0155” platinum coils during embolization compared to those receiving smaller-diameter coils.
    Role: Subcontract PI
  • University of Louisville Research Foundation
    Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Trial Randomizing Heparin (ASTROH)
    Goal: The role of intravenous heparin administration in preventing delayed cerebral ischemia and improving clinical outcome.
    Role: Subcontract PI

    Brain Iron Quantification Based on MRI in Intracerebral Hemorrhage
    Goal: Quantify cerebral iron deposition in patients harboring ICH.
    Role: Co-I
  • University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston
    The Intra-Arterial Vasospasm Trial-A Multi-Center Study
    Goal: To treat and determine the best treatment regimen to treat cerebral vasospasm (blood vessel constriction) refractory to medical management following subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding in the area between the brain and the thin tissues that cover the brain) due to brain aneurysm rupture.
    Role: Subcontract PI
  • Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine  (Vince, PI)
    Vortex Catheter Technology for Mechanical Thrombectomy
    Goal: Develop a new low-profile device for mechanical thrombectomy in stroke.
    Role: Mentor

    Novel Ultrasonic Technique for the Treatment of Hemorrhagic Stroke
    Goal: The aim of this project is to examine if ultrasonic technique can enhance hematoma removal.
    Role: PI
  • NIH 1R21NS104663  (Chaudhary, Pandey, Co-PIs)
    Phenomenon of Ultra-Early Intracranial Hemorrhage in Humans on MRI
    Goal: In the ultra-early erythrolysis to evaluate the phenomenon of ultraearly erythrolysis, demonstrated in the animal model, in human subjects with ICH.
    Role: PI
