Norton Physician is treated for aneurysm with new device
For 23 years a Louisville doctor, the mother of two, lived knowing that a time bomb was ticking away in her brain. That time bomb was an aneurysm that grew so large it was considered inoperable. But as fate would have it, just as the aneurysm began causing symptoms too dangerous to ignore, a new medical procedure offered hope. The procedure, something her primary care physician calls a miracle, is performed at only a few dozen hospitals in the country, including Norton Brownsboro Hospital in Louisville.
Jackie Hays tells us the story of this woman and the highly skilled endovascular surgeons at Norton Neuroscience Institute who gave her hope where there had been none.
