Intracerebral hematomas are blood clots in the brain. They occur when pressure on the brain increases due to a head trauma or swelling. The clot may begin as scattered areas of bleeding.
Best in Care
The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the art facility for children and adults affected by intracerebral hematomas. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that remove blood clots in sensitive areas of the brain, minimize damage to surrounding tissue, and result in less scarring and pain. Using 3-D brain mapping, our neurosurgeons pinpoint the location of the blood clot with immense accuracy and can perform the entire operation through a brain port – a tube inserted into the brain so an incision in the skull and brain tissue is not needed. The entire operation is conducted through the brain port.
