Dr.Chandril Chugh is a Neurologist trained in the USA. He has additional superspecialization in the field of neurocritical care, neurosonology and interventional neurology. He has trained at the top universities in the USA and completed his specilaization in Neurology from Loyola University Medical Center, Chicago. He then completed his training in neurocritical care at the Ivy league medical center of University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He has further specialized in Interventional Neurology or Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology from Texas Stroke Institute in Texas. He is one of the rarest kind of Neurologists who have completed such specialized and extensive training even in the USA. 

He specializes in the field of minimally invasive brain and spine procedures and offers treatment without the need for open surgery. Minimally invasive brain procedures are carried out through endovascular route ( going into the blood vessels of the brain) which makes them safer and better tolerated. There are very few well trained endovascular specialists in the country and even fewer who are as well trained as Dr.Chugh. Dr.Chugh is extensively published  and is a reviewer for many international and Indian medical journals.

Dr.Chugh specializes in the treatment of stroke, paralysis, brain hemorrhage, brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs and AV fistulas) of the brain and spinal cord, brain trauma, stenosis of the carotid arteries or arteries of the brain, spinal cord disorders. 

Endovascular surgical neuroradiology and Neurocritical Care
Endovascular surgical Neuroradiology is an exceptionally rare and coveted medical superspeciality. Even in United States of America there are less than 1000 trained doctors in this field as compared to cardiologists which are more than 23000. This field has revolutionized the care of the patients with neurological disorders and presents immense potential and avenue for future growth. There are very few neurologists trained in this super-speciality all over the world. As part of comprehensive care an Endovascular Neurologist requires state of the art neurocritical care services. Neurocirtical care has been shown to improve outcomes in patients with neurological disorders when compared general critical care.
The medical subspecialty of Neurocritical Care is devoted to the comprehensive, multisystem care of the critically-ill neurological patient. Most uniquely, neurocritical care is concerned with the interface between the brain and other organ systems in the setting of critical illness. Expertise in Neurocritical Care involves procedural skills and proficiency with standard forms of ICU monitoring (i.e., cardiovascular hemodynamic monitoring and mechanical ventilation) as well as specialized forms of neurological monitoring (i.e. ICP and continuous EEG monitoring) and interventions (i.e., hypertensive hypervolemic therapy, therapeutic hypothermia). Neurocritical Care involves taking care of neurological  and neurosurgical patients, whether in a neuro-ICU, or as part of a team responsible for  the care of neurological patients in the context of a medical-surgical ICU.
