What is cerebrovascular surgery?

Cerebrovascular surgery is the management of conditions affecting the blood vessels of the brain. These include brain aneurysms, brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), dural arteriovenous fistulas, cavernous malformations, moyamoya disease and intracerebral haemorrhage. These conditions can either cause stroke or increase the risk of stroke. 

Do all cerebrovascular conditions require surgery?

Most cerebrovascular conditions are found incidentally on brain scans and often only require monitoring with regular scans. However, some conditions may require immediate treatment. If intervention is required, this may consist of surgery, endovascular treatment (treatment from inside the vessel), radiation treatment, or a combination of these. Dr Dawes works collaboratively with endovascular and radiation specialists to provide multidisciplinary care, allowing him to tailor the treatment to the needs of his patients.
