Minimally-invasive blood vessel surgery

Endovascular Neurosurgery involves procedures performed within blood vessels under fluoroscopic guidance. Performing a minimally-invasive surgery within a blood vessel requires only a very small incision to access the artery, allowing for a faster recovery.

A team approach

At Palmetto Health, we believe in the team approach to treating these complex cases. Our comprehensive team of neurosurgeons, neurointerventionalists and stroke neurologists holds regular conferences to discuss patient cases. We continue to collaborate throughout our patients' treatment, ensuring better care.

Hybrid neurointerventional suite

Palmetto Health has the region’s only Neurointerventional Hybrid Operating Suite. As well as being equipped for both endovascular and open neurosurgical cases, this room allows surgeons to combine the two techniques or use them simultaneously. State-of-the-art fluoroscopy and 3D rotational angiography can now be incorporated into open surgery such as craniotomy for clipping of intracranial aneurysm or obliteration of AV fistulae to confirm the procedure is complete before the patient leaves the operating room.

Conditions we treat include:

  • Acute ischemic stroke
  • Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
  • Arterial/carotid stenosis
  • Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs)
  • Cerebral aneurysm
  • Intracerebral hemorrhage
  • Moyamoya disease
  • Spinal arteriovenous malformations and arteriovenous fistulae

Treating brain aneurysms

Cerebral aneurysms happen when a blood vessel in the brain balloons out and fills with blood. If an aneurysm ruptures, symptoms can include severe headache, nausea, vision impairment and loss of consciousness.
