Department of Neurosurgery

Vascular Neurosurgery Division

The Neurosurgery Department at the University of Utah provides comprehensive management of all possible cerebrovascular disorders using every available technological advance. In partnership with our colleagues in neuroradiology, neuro critical care, the neurology stroke service, and neurorehab, our department brings a depth of expertise and experience to vascular problems affecting the brain and spinal cord that is unmatched in the Intermountain West area. We routinely provide treatment for patients with brain aneurysms, vascular malformations, stroke, cerebral hemorrhages, cavernous angiomas, AVMs, and vascular tumors in state-of-the-art operating suites and endovascular treatment facilities.

Treatment options range from minimally invasive angiographic coiling, stenting, and embolization to open surgical repair and, when needed, a combination of these modalities. The University of Utah Clinical Neurosciences Center is the only facility in the region to provide stent-type flow diversion treatment for aneurysms that previously required highly complex operations to repair. No other facility in the region has a comparable range of experience and device expertise to handle such a complex field of neuroscience medicine.
