He completed the NYU Langone Medical Center triple boards program from July 2003 until June 2011, completing two residencies (neurology and radiology) as well as two fellowships (diagnostic neuroradiology and interventional neuroradiology). Dr. Sahlein was an assistant professor of radiology in neurosurgery and neurology at Columbia University Medical Center for three years prior to moving to Indiana. Dr. Sahlein actively conducts and has published research on brain aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations, and is the principle investigator of the Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine endovascular stroke treatment database. In the last decade, he has published numerous articles in highly regarded biomedical journals, most recently in the Journal of Neurosurgery and in Stroke

Dr. Sahlein brings his expertise in neurology, radiology, diagnostic neuroradiology, and interventional neuroradiology to the practice. In addition to being board certified in all three areas, he is a credentialed neuroendovascular surgeon for the Committee on Advanced Subspecialty Training (CAST) of the Society of Neurological Surgeons. He is currently the fellowship director for the Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine neuroendovascular fellowship training program.
