The only endovascular neurosurgery practice between St. Louis and Memphis, Cape Cerebrovascular & Endovascular Neurosurgery provides cutting-edge treatment techniques and resources for neurological patients in the region.
What is Endovascular Neurosurgery?
Endovascular neurosurgery is minimally invasive surgery on the brain or spine done through a microcatheter in the femoral artery. It is useful for a variety of complex disorders of the blood vessels, brain and spine, like aneurysm, stroke and vascular tumors. Cape Cerebrovascular & Endovascular Neurosurgery also offers a full spectrum of care using traditional open surgical techniques.
As a physician partner of Saint Francis Medical Center, Cape Cerebrovascular & Endovascular Neurosurgery is backed by the powerful resources and advanced technology of Saint Francis’ nationally acclaimed Neurosciences Institute. This allows for the emergency treatment of serious neurological conditions, like brain aneurysms, with state-of-the-art technology not found elsewhere in the region.
Hybrid Surgical Suite
Brain surgery can take unexpected turns—sometimes requiring multiple operating environments. Seconds count, and moving a patient uses up critical time.
The solution? Saint Francis Medical Centers’ endovascular neurosurgery hybrid suite—the only one in the southeast Missouri region and just the second of its kind in the nation. All of the necessary equipment is in house, ensuring fluid transition from endovascular surgery to an open or combined approach. These on-site capabilities optimize procedures and minimize or eliminate several factors that negatively affect outcomes.
The hybrid suite is used for a variety of conditions, including:
- Arterial stenosis
- Arteriovenous malformations
- Carotid-cavernous sinus fistulas
- Cerebral revascularization
- Minimally invasive spine surgery
- Vascular tumors
- Vasospastic arteries.
Many of these conditions are relatively common, so the suite makes a tremendous difference for residents in southeast Missouri and southern Illinois who require immediate intervention.
