What is Cerebrovascular Disease?
Cerebrovascular disease refers to conditions that affect blood flow to the brain, including bulging or bleeding (such as brain aneurysms), restricted blood flow (such as carotid atherosclerotic disease) and vascular malformations. The affected blood vessels may be on the brain’s surface, in the brain, in the brain stem or along the neck or spinal cord leading to the brain.

Dr. Gavin Britz uses a minimally invasive technique to remove a vascular lesion.
