Richard Bellon, M.D.

Dr. Bellon completed medical school at the Case Western Reserve School of Medicine and then did his radiology residency at the University of Arizona. Subsequent training included a fellowship in Diagnostic Neuroradiology at Stanford University and a fellowship in Interventional Neuroradiology at the Harvard School of Medicine/Massachusetts General Hospital. Following four years as the director of interventional neuroradiology at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, he joined Radiology Imaging Associates and the Colorado Neurologic Institute. His focus is minimally invasive treatment of aneurysms, AVMs, dural fistula and acute stroke. Dr. Bellon is a senior member of the American Society of Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology and American Society of Neuroradiology.
