Professional background

Anne Schmitt is a full-time diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology consultant at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Dr. Schmitt studied medicine at Paracelsus Medical University in Salzburg, Austria graduating in 2010 with a final thesis in cellular physiology from Yale School of Medicine, CT, USA.

She trained in general clinical radiology as well as performed an academic clinical fellowship at University College London Hospitals in London, gaining her Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists in 2015 as well as completing her United States Medical License Examination (USMLE) the same year.

She subsequently undertook three years of fellowship training in diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology on the pan-London neuroradiology training scheme, including one year of dedicated paediatric interventional Neuroradiology at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

As well as planning and interpreting imaging studies of the brain and spine, she specialises in endovascular treatment of neurovascular conditions including aneurysms, stroke, intracranial or spinal arterio-venous malformations or fistulas, and minimal invasive percutaneous image guided spinal procedures, such as biopsies and nerve root injections.
