Dr. Sattar earned his medical degree from the Aga Khan University of Karachi, Pakistan in 2007, and his residency training in Neurology at the University of Wisconsin in 2013. He completed his fellowship training at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Vascular Neurology and Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology. Dr. Sattar is board certified in both Vascular Neurology and Neurology.

Dr. Sattar is an Endovascular Interventional Neurologist specializing in cerebrovascular disease treatment and prevention. He specializes in neuro-interventional procedures such as acute stroke thrombectomy, cerebral aneurysm coiling and embolizations, arteriovenous malformation and intracranial tumor embolizations, extracranial and intracranial angioplasty and stenting. Dr. Sattar has authored over 15 peer-reviewed journal articles, 20 abstracts, and presented at dozens of regional and national Neurointerventional meetings. He is an active members of several national societies such as the Society of Vascular Interventional Neurology (SVIN) and the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery (SNIS).
