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

Cranial Surgery

  • Clipping to block blood flow
  • Extracranial-intracranial bypass (EC-IC bypass) to restore blood flow
