Aneurysms

With an extensive background in vascular disorders of the brain, our clinic has treated over 1000 aneurysms and vascular disorders of the brain in the past several years. Advanced treatment options include minimally invasive craniotomy as well as endovascular treatment of aneurysms and other vascular disorders.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery

UT Erlanger Neurosurgery offers minimally-invasive delivery of radiation therapy to treat brain tumors and blood vessel malformations of the brain. This focused radiation offers safer and more delicate treatment of lesions near the brainstem and other intricate areas of the brain. UTEN is also able to perform stereotactic biopsy of lesions through smaller incisions with quicker healing times.
