Dr. Vajpeyee worked as assistant professor in stroke unit in National institute of mental health and neurosciences (NIMHANS), Bangalore.
Dr. Vajpeyee obtained his fellowship in neurointervention in the department of neuroendovascular therapy, Sir Ganga Ram hospital, New Delhi. He was also a visiting fellow in department of interventional neuroradiology, university hospital, Zurich, Switzerland and Sarland University, Homburg, Germany. He was also selected as stroke fellow in Bicetere University, Paris, France.
Dr. Vajpeyee earned his DM Neurology degree from Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute, Lucknow, India. During this many research projects were undertaken, most of his work is reflected in published papers in national & international journals mainly in the field of stroke. Apart from having done more hundreds of neurointerventional procedures like cerebral digital substraction angiography, carotid stenting, intra-arterial thrombolysis, aneurysm coiling, AVM embolisation etc, he was the first one in India to do and publish microcatheter assisted coiling of a basilar fenestration aneurysm in the journal “neurointerventions” in year 2013. He has been reviewer to many journals including prestigious journal “Neurology”.

Dr. Vajpeyee did his MD in internal medicine from RNT Medical College, Udaipur, University of Rajasthan.
His poetic skills and scientific research aptitude is still evolving and presently revolves around human embryology, stroke pathophysiology and their probable impact on modern therapeutics. He strongly desire to contribute to develop new biomedical tools or molecules better suited for human body as still very few treatment option remains valid for stroke treatment over last many decades despite thousands of publications every year. Probably stroke therapeutics needs to be reviewed from altogether different angle.
