Dr. Mohammed Ateequr Rahman

Consultant- Interventional Neurologist & Stroke Specialist
Department – Neurology & Interventional Neurology


Dr Mohammed Ateequr Rahman is a Consultant Interventional Neurologist & Stroke Specialist in the Department of Neurology at Virinchi Hospitals. His total 23 years of Medical practice includes seven years of neurology and five years of interventional Neurology. He has worked with reputed hospitals of Hyderabad and other cities in India under different leading capacities for interventional neurology & stroke. He has experience of teaching undergraduate, postgraduate & doctoral students in neurology, medicine & anatomy. He trained undergraduate and postgraduate students for Internal Medicine from Jan 2000 to March 2003 at Government Medical College, Nanded. He has worked as lecturer in the Department of Anatomy at BJ Medical College, Pune. He was with Care Institute of Neurosciences as a teacher and guide for DNB neurology candidates from April 2010 to July 2015. Dr Mohammed Ateequr Rahman after completing his residency in neurology completed his post-doctoral fellowship in interventional neurology and stroke that has seemingly augmented the neurological skills he’d spent years perfecting. Not many established physicians get cross trained as such, but he did exactly that. Neurointerventional techniques resolve brain and spinal conditions using non-surgical ways. He has realized the importance of adapting to changing technology, which will make new minimally invasive and nonsurgical techniques a reality. This technology will have a major impact on the field of Neurology and Neurosurgery. Dr Rahman believes in combining techniques from different activity to achieve a broader range of skills to treat diseases. His areas of interest include stroke/ TIA/ cerebrovascular diseases (acute management and prevention strategies), carotid/ intracranial stenting, emergency neurology (intra-cerebral haemorrhage, subarachnoid haemorrhage, intracranial aneurysms rupture, acute headaches,) and medical complications of neurological diseases. He has received advanced training in carotid stenting in Tokyo, Japan. After his post-doctoral fellowship, he has been practicing independently doing both diagnostic and therapeutic neuro-endovascular procedures. He is the only neurologist in the twin cities with cross-training in neurology and interventional neurology, which is a unique assest for Virinchi Hospital. His unique expertise ensures appropriate clinical assessment and decision making in acute neuroemergencies. Dr Mohammed Ateequr Rahman believes in adapting to robust technology and stroke genomics, which offer precision stroke therapy and preventive stroke therapy, and helps in diagnosing the possibilities of imminent stroke by cell phone usage and many more such possibilities. Virinchi Hospital with strong IT Capabilities provides latest technology capable of changing the practice of medicine with innovative ideas in stroke management. Furthermore, it ensures Tele-stroke consultation for patient residing in remote areas by offering the same standards of care as offered at city-based multi-speciality hospitals. Dr Mohammed Ateequr Rahman is passionate about his work and believes in building team, adapting technology in profession. He likes to be associated with books and interested in giving charity and spending time with orphans.
