Damaged, injured or malformed blood vessels can cause bleeding or circulation problems that can result in strokes, headaches and other symptoms. Neurovascular surgery uses open or minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat problems with the blood vessels of the brain or spine and spinal cord.
Endovascular neurosurgery is a subset of neurovascular surgery that relies on minimally invasive procedures coupled with advanced imaging techniques to deliver care to the nervous system. Typically catheter-based, these procedures treat aneurysms, stroke and other blood vessel conditions in the head, neck and spine.
Open Neurovascular Surgery
Some diseases, including some aneurysms or vascular malformations, require an open surgical approach that allows the surgeon to directly repair the problem. In these cases, open surgery is a safer and more effective method compared to the minimally invasive alternative.
Hybrid Surgery & Advanced Technology
Some complex lesions require advanced technologies, such as hybrid surgery. In these cases, surgeons can use a combination of surgery and endovascular techniques to treat your disease.
