Dr. David A. Siker completed his radiology residency and neurointerventional fellowship at Georgetown University Hospital and the National Institute of Health.  He completed medical school at the University of Florida, and received his bachelors degree in electrical engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University.  Dr. Siker was the first physician to bring neurointerventional therapies from the university setting to the community hospitals of Oregon and Southwest Washington in the late 1990’s.  He is the director of neurointerventional services for Legacy Healthcare Systems, based at Emanuel Hospital.  Dr. Siker performs many of the latest advances in neuro-intervention, including aneurysm flow diversion with Pipeline, aneurysm stent/coiling, AVM/Tumor embolization, intracranial  and carotid stenting. As director of Neurointerventional services, he runs the acute neurointervention team for emergent treatment of problems such as ruptured aneurysms and acute ischemic strokes.

Besides neurointerventional therapy, Dr. Siker’s other main focus is applying state of the art 3T MRI techniques such as CSF Flow analysis for Chiari 1 and Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, DTI (tractography) for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI),  and MR neurography, and dynamic imaging for patients with issues of their spine or associated nerve roots.  These techniques are used to capture nerve tract locations in the brain, subtle neurological abnormalities throughout the nervous system, and multi-positional images of the spine.

We Are Still Open For Your Imaging Needs

Due to current concerns regarding COVID-19, we want to assure you and your patients that we are taking every extra measure to provide the highest quality advanced diagnostic imaging all the while keeping our patients and the community safe.

Hospitals are now restricting any advanced imaging. We are a small independent facility that is able to maintain high levels of sanitation and limit the number of patients in our office at one time.

We are completely sterilizing the office and equipment after every patient.

We have restricted all visitors.

We have adjusted our lobby so that we can ensure multiple patients are not in the office at the same time

We are adhering to strict social distancing guidelines.

We are screening patients and requesting patients with fevers or flu symptoms, been in contact with someone suspected to have the coronavirus or anyone that has traveled to an affected region to please call and cancel/reschedule their appointment.

We are updating our policies daily to coincide with the strictest of measures.

We are all in this together and are here for you and your patients.
