Dr. Violiza Inoa Named Associate Editor for Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery

Congratulations are in order! Semmes Murphey Interventional Neurologist Dr. Violiza Inoa is now an Associate Editor for the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery (JNIS)

In this role, Inoa will be a key part of the editorial leadership team, which aims to advance the vision and mission of JNIS as a highly respected forum for promoting clinical science and best practices in neurointerventional surgery, as well as meet the emerging needs of SNIS’s more than 1,000 members.

“JNIS is an incredible resource for neurointerventionalists and medical professionals alike,” said Inoa. “It provides insight into exciting advances in the field of neurointerventional surgery, allowing other professionals to learn from cutting-edge research and innovation. I am honored to join the editorial team and look forward to helping maintain the integrity of this journal.”

With more than a decade of impact, JNIS is considered a leading peer-reviewed journal for scientific research and literature pertaining to the field of neurointerventional surgery. The journal was launched in 2009 following a growing professional interest in neurointerventional techniques for the treatment of a range of neurological and vascular problems, including stroke, aneurysms, brain tumors, and spinal disorders. JNIS is published by BMJ on behalf of SNIS, and it also is the official journal of European Society of Minimally Invasive Neurological Therapy (ESMINT), the Interventional Chapter of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Neuroradiology (ANZSNR), Canadian Interventional Neuro Group (CING), Hong Kong Society of Interventional and Therapeutic NeuroRadiology (HKSITN), and the INR Chapter of NRST.

SNIS is composed of physicians around the globe with backgrounds in interventional neuroradiology, endovascular neurosurgery, and interventional neurology who have special expertise in treating such conditions as stroke, aneurysms, carotid stenosis, and spinal abnormalities through minimally invasive procedures. Having pioneered these techniques over the past three decades, neurointerventionalists continue to transform the treatment landscape and improve outcomes for conditions that have the significant potential for loss of life or severely impaired quality of life.
