Dr Steinfort works in Sydney and is a pioneer in endovascular management of complex neurovascular disorders. He is one of the very few clinicians in Australia that practices exclusively in neurointervention, running a busy private practice and network public service. Dr Steinfort performed the first mechanical stent thrombectomy in Australia (and we are told second in the world) for acute stroke in early 2009. As well as his clinical practice, he has been a tireless advocate for patient accessibility to neurovascular services, as well as clinician training and credentialing. Dr Steinfort also serves on various AMA, RANZCR and federal health committees and boards.
