Many cerebrovascular conditions can lead to the need for emergency surgical intervention. In fact, cerebrovascular disease is the third leading cause of death in the United States.
In many cases, it is now possible to treat damaged vessels without the need for open skull surgery, resulting in better outcomes and shorter recovery time of our patients, when compared to open surgeries. This is thanks to advances in the area of minimally invasive endovascular/cerebrovascular surgery. Your surgeon will explain the pros and cons of minimally-invasive surgery and determine if you are candidate.
