Brain Aneurysm AwarenessDid you know that every 18 minutes a brain aneurysm ruptures? More than 30,000 people in this country fall victim to the life-threatening illness each year.

September is National Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month, and Dr. Arvind Ahuja is proud to join the Brain Aneurysm Foundation to help educate people about the seriousness of cerebral aneurysms and the importance of early detection and screening.

Aneurysms form inside the brain when a blood vessel weakens and begins to bulge. If left untreated, pressure can build up along the vessel causing it to rupture. Dr. Ahuja has been supporting and treating aneurysm patients for over two decades, making him one of the most experienced neurosurgeons in southeastern Wisconsin.

From coiling to flow diversion and stenting, Dr. Ahuja has unparalleled experience in treating a wide range of brain aneurysm conditions as minimally invasive as possible.

Brain aneurysms often arise suddenly, but there are still many early symptoms that can signal something is wrong. Extreme pain confined to one area of the head, blurred vision and neck stiffness are among the most common. Ruptured brain aneurysms may cause more abrupt and unexpected indicators that will require immediate care.

By raising awareness and sharing knowledge, Neurosurgery and Endovascular Associates hopes to encourage people to catch warning signs early on. No matter how severe or mild your condition is, our team will ensure that you receive the best diagnosis and treatment.
