TJUH - Neurosurgery - Cerebrovascular

This Division represents a comprehensive approach to cerebrovascular disease that includes microsurgery, endovascular embolization techniques for aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations, and stereotactic radiosurgery for brain AVMs using the Gamma Knife and X Knife (LINAC based). In addition, clinical experience is available in microsurgery for stroke prevention, as well as carotid endarterectomy and balloon angioplasty of the carotid artery if patients are not candidates for open surgical procedures.

Within the past year, over four hundred aneurysms and one hundred forty one brain AVMs were treated, and twelve carotid endarterectomies and forty-nine angioplasty procedures were performed. This represents a larger volume of vascular neurosurgery than all other programs in the Philadelphia region combined.
