Brain Aneurysm & AVM Center
If you have been diagnosed with a brain aneurysm or AVMs (arteriovenous malformations), you want the best treatment and care possible. Jefferson Brain Aneurysm and AVM Center physicians treat the largest combined volume of brain tumors, aneurysms and AVMs in the nation annually.
Specifically, we treat more than 500 brain aneurysms per year, including 150 open-brain surgeries with clipping and 350 endovascular procedures, based on the aneurysm's shape, size and accessibility.
We Helped Pioneer Treatments of Brain Aneurysms
Our physicians have helped pioneer specialized treatments of brain aneurysms, while setting training standards for neurosurgeons worldwide.
Our Center utilizes advanced minimally invasive procedures such as:
- Coil embolization
- Biplane angiography
- Pipeline™ embolization device
- Stereotactic radiosurgeries using either the Gamma Knife® or linear accelerator (LINAC) technologies
The Jefferson team has been providing stereotactic treatments for almost two decades, starting with the first radiosurgery treatments in the Delaware Valley in 1991.
