Brain aneurysms can lead to a stroke, with devastating side effects that radically alter a patient’s quality of life. Dr. D.J. Cook, a cerebrovascular surgeon-scientist, is developing new treatments that minimize trauma related to brain aneurysm surgery, resulting in better outcomes, shorter hospital stays and an earlier return to normal life. He also runs a parallel research program to develop new treatments to enhance brain recovery after stroke.
Dr. Cook’s surgical approach is focused on minimally invasive techniques to treat brain aneurysms and skull-base tumours through keyhole openings in the skull, using specialized instruments and scopes. These techniques have improved outcomes, decreased admission times and freed up critical resources.
