Cerebrovascular Surgery

Cerebrovascular Surgery

Cerebrovascular diseases affect the blood vessels (arteries, veins, and/or capillaries) that provide circulation to the brain. Cerebrovascular disorders include strokes, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), brain aneurysms, and cavernous malformations. With surgery, many cerebrovascular disorders can be successfully treated, minimizing risks of complications such as stroke and bleeding.


The Department of Neurosurgery’s Cerebrovascular Surgery/Endovascular Treatment subspecialty offers:

•    Acute rehabilitation services
•    Carotid artery stenting for carotid stenosis
•    Endovascular coiling of cerebral aneurysms
•    Embolization of arteriovenous malformations
•    Surgery for the treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), aneurysms, and cavernous malformations

Cerebrovascular surgery is the surgical repair of the blood vessels that supply the brain with oxygen. Our specialized team of nationally and internationally known cerebrovascular neurosurgeons diagnose and treat all adult and pediatric cerebrovascular conditions.
