Cerebral Bypass Surgery

A cerebral bypass is a surgical procedure performed to restore, or “revascularize,” blood flow to the brain. A cerebral bypass is the brain’s equivalent of a coronary bypass in the heart. The surgery involves connecting a blood vessel from outside the brain to a vessel inside the brain to reroute blood flow around an artery that is narrowed, blocked, or damaged. The main goal of bypass surgery is to restore blood supply to the brain and prevent strokes.
