Cerebral (Brain) Surgery
The need for cerebral, or brain, surgery may arise for a number of reasons, including a traumatic injury such as those sustained in a fall or accident, the discovery of a
aneurysm, diagnosis of neurological disease or complications caused by
stroke, illness or infection.
Stereotactic neurosurgery, which utilizes imaging to guide the surgeon to specific, targeted areas of the brain, is a standard procedure at St. Vincent Healthcare.
