Noninvasive surgery is now becoming a preferable option for many individuals. When it comes to procedures on the brain or spine, having a delicate touch means the procedure will often be less disruption. This is crucial when treating highly complex diseases, such as brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, arteriovenous fistulas and strokes. This can be done by threading small wires and catheters through arteries and veins.
Neurovascular diseases can be life-threatening. However, with the assistance of our well-qualified team devoted to neuroscience, you can rest assured that you are receiving the best treatment possible.
Conditions We Can Treat
Minimally invasive surgeries, such as neuroendovascular surgeries, have lower rates of complication and patients can recover more quickly than with traditional forms of surgery. Our use of this technology has allowed us to advance our skills in order to combat a wide variety of neurological diseases.
Some of the conditions we can treat include:
- Brain and spinal tumors
- Hemangiomas or venolymphatic malformations
- Carotid artery disease
- Arteriovenous Fistula (AVF)
- Central Retinal Artery Occlusion
- Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM)
- Traumatic brain Injuries
- Venous thrombosis in the brain
- Intracranial hemorrhage
- Cavernous malformation
We can utilize a vast range of treatment options to provide relief for this diseases, including spinal angiograms, brain aneurysm treatment, carotid stenting, brain and spinal tumor embolization, and balloon test occlusion. Our department provides comprehensive neurovascular services and our stroke center is certified by the Joint Commission, and is a leader in stroke care in the Silicon Valley area.
