Dr. Jadhav is Assistant Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery. He completed his undergraduate studies at Harvard College where graduated magna cum laude in Biochemistry. He subsequently completed a combined MD-PhD degree through the Health, Sciences and Technology program at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was the first recipient of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute Medical Scientist Training Fellowship. He completed Neurology residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital where he served as chief resident. He joined University of Pittsburgh in 2011 as a vascular neurology fellow at the Stroke Institute. He is board certified in neurology (2011), vascular neurology (2014) and neuro-critical care medicine (2013) and endovascular neurosurgery (2014). Since 2012, he has attended on the stroke service at UPMC Presbyterian, Mercy and Shadyside hospitals. He services as director of stroke services at UPMC-Shadyside campus. In 2014, he completed a neuro-interventional fellowship at the UPMC Center for Neuro-endovascular Therapy where he has performed over 2000 neuro-interventional procedures. He performs treatments for the management of both ischemic stroke (carotid stenting and mechanical thrombectomy) and hemorrhagic stroke (coil embolization for the treatment of cerebral aneurysms, as well as embolization of arteriovenous malformations and arteriovenous fistulas) as well as tumor embolization, epistaxis treatment and spinal angiography.

Additionally, Dr. Jadhav serves as an associate editor for the Journal of Neuro-interventional Surgery and Interventional Neurology. He has published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals or book chapters. He serves as co-investigator on over a dozen clinical trials and serves as local principal investigator on several global clinical trials (DAWN, STRATIS, TREVO registry, ARISE II, ATLAS, RHAPSODY). His research interests focus on the natural history and management of cerebrovascular occlusive disease and endovascular approaches to acute ischemic stroke.
