Dr. Mark Moss Returns as Interventional Neuroradiologist

Mark Moss, M.D., who worked for Washington Regional as a neuroradiologist from 2006 to 2016, has returned to Washington Regional as an interventional neuroradiologist.

An Arkansas native, Dr. Moss graduated from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, where he completed a residency in diagnostic radiology and a fellowship in neuroradiology. He returns to Washington Regional after completing a neuroendovascular fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina. He is board certified by the American Board of Radiology.

Dr. Moss joins Dr. Mehmet Akdol in providing interventional neuroradiology at Washington Regional’s Northwest Arkansas Neuroscience Institute. Interventional neuroradiology is an endovascular technique that allows complex diagnostic and interventional procedures without open surgery. As interventional neuroradiologists, Drs. Akdol and Moss provide minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment options for conditions of the brain, spine and neck, including brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations and acute stroke. Procedures are performed by inserting a tiny tube in the blood vessel and using imaging guidance to deliver the treatment, many times allowing the patient to return to normal activity within a few days.

Offering advanced services such as interventional neuroradiology demonstrates Washington Regional’s commitment to providing the community with multidisciplinary stroke care. Having already earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark for Advanced Certification as a Primary Stroke Center, Washington Regional has a goal to become the area’s first Comprehensive Stroke Center, which is The Joint Commission’s highest designation for stroke care.

As the region’s stroke care leader, Washington Regional remains the only hospital in Northwest Arkansas to provide 24/7 in-person emergency room stroke coverage by fellowship-trained providers. Washington Regional’s stroke team also provides consults to other Arkansas hospitals via telemedicine for the AR SAVES program (Stroke Assistance Through Virtual Emergency Support).
