Aneurysm care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

Mayo Clinic's aneurysm team includes health care providers trained in blood vessel diseases (vascular specialists), blood vessel surgery (vascular surgeons), brain disease (neurologists), brain surgery (neurosurgeons), and blood vessel and brain imaging. These specialists work together to diagnose and treat adults and children with aneurysms and to provide exactly the care you need.

  • Collaborative care. Having this specialized expertise in a single place means that you're not just getting one opinion. Your care is discussed among the team and your test results are available quickly. Appointments are scheduled in coordination.
  • Advanced diagnosis. Mayo Clinic specialists use advanced imaging techniques to determine the size and location of an aneurysm. Imaging test results help diagnose a ruptured aneurysm or determine the risk of rupture. Diagnostic tests include heart ultrasound (echocardiogram), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), cerebral arteriography and cerebrospinal fluid examination.
  • Innovative treatment. Mayo Clinic surgeons are committed to providing the latest treatment options for aneurysms. These specialists have experience using endovascular surgery as well as open surgery. For brain aneurysms, endovascular surgery options include coiling and coiling in combination with stenting.
