Cerebrovascular and endovascular surgery

Geisinger’s neurologists, neurosurgeons and radiologists are at the forefront of cerebrovascular and endovascular treatment.

Aneurysms, hemorrhages, vascular malformations, carotid stenosis, cavernous carotid fistulas and life-threatening brain swelling are among the complex cerebrovascular conditions we treat with advanced endovascular techniques. 

What you should know about cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery  

  • Cerebrovascular and endovascular surgical techniques are used to treat diseases affecting the blood vessels in the brain.
  • High-resolution 2-D and 3-D cerebral angiography is used to provide quick and accurate diagnoses of complex cerebrovascular conditions.
  • Some of the advanced treatment options used to treat cerebrovascular conditions include:
    • Endovascular aneurysm coiling or embolization with various assisted techniques
    • Thrombectomy to remove clots that potentially cause devastating disability after stroke
    • Endovascular flow diversion
    • Surgical clipping via traditional craniotomy, microsurgery, skull base or minimally invasive approaches
    • Bypass and surgical trapping of the aneurysm
    • Minimally invasive craniotomy and surgical resection/open disconnection
    • Endovascular embolization
    • Stereotactic radiosurgery or Gamma Knife radiosurgery
    • Image-guided minimally invasive craniotomy and surgical resection of cavernous malformations in the brain or brainstem
    • Angioplasty, venoplasty, stenting and other techniques to address chronic cerebrovascular diseases and reduce stroke risk
