What is neuroendovascular surgery?

Neuroendovascular surgery (NES) at UW Health treats complex brain and spinal cord conditions in both adults and children. This minimally invasive surgery is done from inside the blood vessels. During surgery, the surgeon will thread small catheters (hollow tubes) and small devices through arteries and veins to the affected blood vessel for treatment. Many treatments can be performed entirely inside the vessels with no other treatments necessary.
