Neuroendovascular Surgery

Neuroendovascular surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery for certain types of brain and spine conditions. Minimally invasive procedures use much smaller incisions than traditional open surgery. For procedures in the brain, a catheter (a long, thin tube), is inserted through a small incision in the groin and threaded up through the blood vessels to the problem area in the brain.

Conditions We Treat

We treat the following conditions:

  • Cerebral Aneurysms
  • Acute Stroke
  • Intracranial Stenosis
  • Carotid Stenosis

Benefits of Neuroendovascular Surgery

As an alternative to open spine or brain surgery, neuroendovascular procedures are minimally invasive treatment options. That may mean less risk, less pain and shorter recovery periods. Some treatments (including emergency stroke care) are not feasible using an open surgery approach and can only be performed using a neuroendovascular procedure to increase patient outcomes.
