Endovascular Neurosurgeon Dr. Travis Dumont Joins UA Department of Surgery

Dr. Dumont specializes in vascular neurosurgery, including using minimally invasive techniques to treat complex neurovascular disorders of the brain, including brain aneurysms, vascular malformations of the brain and spinal cord, and brain blood vessel blockages and stroke.

Travis M. Dumont, MD, has joined the Division of Neurosurgery at the UA Department of Surgery as assistant professor.

Dr. Dumont specializes in vascular neurosurgery, including using minimally invasive techniques to treat complex neurovascular disorders of the brain. Using image guidance systems, Dr. Dumont navigates catheters and devices through the groin or the arm to locate and treat various blood vessel abnormalities, such as brain aneurysms, vascular malformations of the brain and spinal cord, and brain blood vessel blockages and stroke.

Dr. Dumont joins a multidisciplinary team of neurologists, neuroradiologists, emergency physicians and other experts at The University of Arizona Medical Center – University Campus Stroke Center, a Joint Commission certified center, nationally recognized for its expertise in providing the highest level of care for stroke patients. Early treatment for stroke is critical; Dr. Dumont provides the most advanced stroke technologies and therapies, giving patients access to the next generation of stroke prevention and management.

A graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Dr. Dumont attended residency training at Fletcher Allen Health Care, Burlington, Vermont. He completed a fellowship in endovascular neurosurgery at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he also served as clinical assistant professor.

His research interests focus on outcomes following treatment options for stroke, aneurysm and vascular malformations. He has published more than 50 journal articles and book chapters.

“Dr. Dumont’s skillset allows us to effectively treat patients with neurovascular disease, such as stroke or ruptured aneurysm,” said G. Michael Lemole, MD, chief, UA Division of Neurosurgery. “Our patients now can stay in Tucson to receive comprehensive treatments for these diseases at Southern Arizona’s only academic medical center. The addition of Dr. Dumont strengthens not only neurosurgery at UAMC, but also our collaboration with neurology and neuroradiology colleagues.”

“We are pleased to have Dr. Dumont on board and to offer the community access to this high level of less invasive neurosurgical care for complex diseases,” said Rainer W.G. Gruessner, MD, professor and chairman, UA Department of Surgery. “He will help to further advance our prominence in neurosurgery, which will benefit our patients in need of complex neurosurgical procedures.”
