Comprehensive Brain Aneurysm Treatment

At Swedish, we offer patients the most comprehensive range of advanced surgical and minimally invasive endovascular techniques for the treatment of both ruptured and unruptured aneurysms. This wide array of available services enables physicians to determine the optimum therapy for each patient based on critical factors that range from the size, location and type of aneurysm to the health and medical history of the patient.

With the advent of balloon-assisted techniques, and, more recently, the development of unique intravascular stents, management of wide-neck and complex aneurysms is now possible without the need for open surgery in many cases.
