Georgianne Snowden, Section Head for Neurointerventional Radiology at Radiology Associates, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in neurointerventional treatment.
After obtaining a bachelor’s degree from Miami University, Dr. Snowden continued her education with a Medical Doctor from the Oklahoma University College of Medicine in 1987, and subsequently a neuroradiology fellowship with hands-on neurointerventional surgery experience with the University of Cincinnati Hospital in 1992.
As a neuroradiologist, Dr. Snowden interprets x-rays, magnetic resonance images (MRI), and computed tomography (CT) scans of the brain, spine and spinal cord, face and neck and peripheral nerves and also performs angiographic studies of the brain and spine and interprets the findings, instrumental in diagnosing and treating aneurysms and strokes.
Dr. Snowden is certified in diagnostic radiology and neuroradiology by the American Board of Radiology and is licensed to practice in Ohio and Oklahoma. Since 1992, she has provided superior care as section head of neurointerventional radiology with Radiology Associates LLC in Oklahoma City. In addition, from 2013 to 2016 she served a residency with INTEGRIS Health in Oklahoma City, where she excelled as program director in diagnostic radiology. Early in Dr. Snowden’s career, she was the first physician in Oklahoma to perform an endovascular cerebral aneurysm coiling surgery. It took place after her fellowship, when she back to Oklahoma, and basically started the neuro-interventional department at the INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center.
Dr. Snowden’s career honors include a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Board of Radiology in 2015; Teacher of the Year in 2009 and 2012; Distinguished Service Award in 2010. Additionally, she has been a four-time nominee for Woman of the Year in Oklahoma City by the Journal Record, in 2003, 2005 and 2010.
Dr. Snowden attributes her success to the fact that she is extremely tenacious and driven. Even at the age of 14 years, she already knew she was going to be a doctor. Her drive led her to read more medical anatomy books. The feeling that she is where she is supposed to be makes her go to work happily every single day.
The most fabulous feeling for Dr. Snowden is seeing her patients come back in with their families after she helped them survive a ruptured aneurism or stroke. That is her career highlight and the very reason she is continuing in her career. In the coming years, Dr. Snowden would like to finally become a fellow of the American College of Radiology and she also intends to continue to teach and to train people for as long as she is capable.
