Endovascular Neurosurgery Services
As the only endovascular neurosurgeon in the region, Dr. Lincoln Jimenez ensures that patients have access to the latest techniques used to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions, such as brain aneurisms, ischemic strokes and vascular and arteriovenous malformations.
An endovascular neurosurgeon is a surgeon who is specially trained to perform minimally-invasive procedures that combine the use of imaging technology, catheters and various clotting agents to treat diseases of the blood vessels of the brain and spine. Over the last several years, catheter techniques have become the treatment of choice for certain aneurysms because they involve less risk and faster recovery than open brain surgery.
Dr. Jimenez has a special medical interest in vascular neurosurgery, including open and endovascular approaches. He has experience in spine surgery and treating neurologic conditions, such as herniated discs, nerve root injuries, trigeminal neuralgia, Chiari malformations, brain hemorrhages, brain and spine tumors, and osteoarthritis of the spine.
