Before your surgery, your doctor will talk with you about any questions or concerns you have and give you instructions on how to prepare.
During either type of surgery, you’ll have anesthesia so you won’t feel any pain. In addition to your surgeon and anesthesiologist, your support team will include operating room nurses, assistants and X-ray technologists, all specially trained and experienced in carotid artery aneurysm surgery.
In most cases, either procedure takes 2 to 3 hours. Your medical team will closely monitor you, anticipate your needs and prevent complications.
