Profile

Biography

Tariq Hamid, M.D., specializes in Interventional Neurology (Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology / Neuro-endovascular Surgery), Vascular Neurology and Neurophysiology at MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland.

Philosophy of Care

As an expert in neurointerventional (neuro-endovascular) procedures, Dr. Hamid is focused on the diagnosis and management of vascular diseases and conditions of the head, neck and spine, including brain aneurysm and stroke (clot retrieval). He is a key member of the stroke program at MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland, which has been certified as a primary stroke center by HFAP, the nation's original independent, accreditation program.

MidMichigan's brain aneurysm care team has the experience and knowledge to treat aneurysm endovascularly without open surgery. Our experts have access to a spectrum of treatment options, including endovascular coiling, stent assisted coiling, flow diverters (pipeline, FRED device, etc.), WEB device embolization and other innovative endovascular techniques.

“Neurointerventional (neuro-endovascular) surgery is a minimally invasive, endovascular approach using tiny tubes called microcatheters to embolize (close) or recanalize (open) abnormal vessels of the brain and spine,” said Dr. Hamid. “Many conditions that were historically untreatable or required more complex or invasive surgery can now be treated using this type of advanced surgery.”

Dr. Hamid believes that a good physician-patient relationship is a key in a patient’s treatment.

“Making patients feel comfortable is the first step to establishing a good relationship with them,” he said. “I work hard to develop strong relationships with my patients and their family members. I listen to my patient’s concerns and integrate them in their plan of care. I am dedicated to educating my patients and improving their overall wellness.”

According to Dr. Hamid, the most satisfying aspect of his work is witnessing the excellent results that interventional neurology procedures can have and the positive impact on a patient’s life.

“For example, a major stroke or brain aneurysm can make a person disabled for life, but due to advancement of neurointerventional surgery procedures, most patients have minimal or no disability,” he added. “The many discoveries in the field of neurointerventional (neuro-endovascular) surgery over the last few years have led to dramatic changes in how we manage well-known neurological disorders.”
