Brain Aneurysms Expert Care and Diagnosis
If you’re looking for experts to diagnose and treat a brain aneurysm, you need highly trained and experienced neurosurgeons. Turn to our team at UC San Diego Health to help you achieve the best outcome to meet your needs.
World-Class Care, Customized for You
A brain (cerebral) aneurysm is a weak bulging spot on the wall of a brain artery. If it leaks or ruptures, it can cause bleeding in the brain and a possible stroke.
Our team includes neurovascular and endovascular surgeons who specialize in the treatment of brain aneurysms. They are equipped with the most advanced neuro-imaging and monitoring technology available.
We use the latest diagnostic methods to provide customized treatment for each patient, such as:
Advanced minimally invasive, catheter-based (endovascular) methods
- Flow diversion (pipeline) using a stent to divert the blood flow
- Endovascular coiling for embolization to stop the bleeding
- Clipping to block blood flow
- Extracranial-intracranial bypass (EC-IC bypass) to restore blood flow
