A hemorrhagic stroke develops when a blood vessel (artery) in the brain leaks or bursts (ruptures). This causes bleeding:
Hemorrhagic strokes are not as common as strokes caused by a blood clot (ischemic strokes). But hemorrhagic strokes cause death more often than ischemic strokes. See the difference between an ischemic stroke and a hemorrhagic stroke.
We specialize in diagnosing and treating neurological conditions with a variety of surgical options for the brain, back and spine, and peripheral nerves.
Stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain is blocked or bursts. Brain damage can begin within minutes, so act quickly.
When blood flow to part of the brain is blocked or reduced for a short time, often by a blood clot.
A brain aneurysm is a weak spot in a blood vessel in the brain that bulges or balloons outward.
