St. Mary’s Performs Its First Awake Aneurysm Craniotomy
West Palm Beach, Fla.-February 17th 2020 – St. Mary’s Medical Center is now performing awake aneurysm craniotomies. A weak area in the blood vessels can develop into a balloon called an Aneurysm, carrying an inherent risk of bursting. This is treated either by coiling, or a surgical technique known as “clipping”. During this procedure, the skull is opened, and the aneurysm on the artery is clipped, preventing it from bursting and causing a brain hemorrhage.
