Glenn (Lee) Pride, M.D., is an Associate Professor of Radiology and Neurological Surgery and the Interventional Neuroradiology Program Director at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
He specializes in the treatment of hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke, cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, extra- and intracranial vascular occlusive lesions, facial vascular abnormalities, and spinal vascular abnormalities. He also serves as Director of the UT Southwestern fellowship programs in radiology and neuroradiology.
Dr. Pride earned his medical degree from the University of Alabama School of Medicine and completed residencies in neurology and diagnostic radiology at UT Southwestern. He then received advanced training in neuroradiology and interventional neuroradiology through fellowships at UT Southwestern.
He serves on national specialty committees for interventional neuroradiology and is regularly invited to present his work at national and international conferences. He is a reviewer for the Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery and a member of the Texas Medical Association, American Academy of Neurology, American Roentgen Ray Society, Radiological Society of North America, Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery, and the American Society of Neuroradiology.
Meet Dr. Pride
Endovascular Surgery Expert in Dallas
Glenn (Lee) Pride, M.D., is a neuro-interventional radiologist who specializes in treating blood vessel problems of the brain and spine using endovascular neurosurgery.
He is an expert at using minimally invasive procedures, performed from inside the blood vessels themselves, to treat strokes, aneurysms, and blood vessel malformations of the brain, face, neck, and spine.
Over his career, Dr. Pride has been at the forefront of these imaging-based techniques to improve outcomes for patients with strokes and aneurysms. In many cases, the procedures spare patients from open surgery, reducing recovery times from weeks to days. They also have made it possible to treat certain conditions, such as some complex aneurysms, that previously didn’t have reliable treatment solutions.
Dr. Pride’s passion for this highly specialized field started early in his career. During his radiology residency, he was involved in a case in which a man was having a very severe stroke; the patient was essentially paralyzed and unable to interact with his environment.
“With an endovascular procedure, we were able to open one blood vessel, and the patient woke up like Lazarus,” Dr. Pride recalls. “It was a phenomenal experience for me – one of those moments where you think, ‘I want to do that.”
Dr. Pride puts a priority on participating in clinical trials to test new and improved treatment strategies and devices. But he also carefully evaluates every patient he sees to make sure he finds the right treatment for that individual.
Dr. Pride directs the radiology and neuroradiology fellowship programs at UT Southwestern Medical Center, which train future specialists in these delicate techniques. He notes that while the field brings together physicians from very different specialties – neurology, radiology, and neurosurgery – his group at UT Southwestern is deeply collaborative.
“I really feel like our team is directed by all of us together,” he says. “We’re excited that we get to make such a difference in people’s lives.”
