Chicago’s most experienced endovascular neurosurgeon treating stroke, aneurysms and other conditions of the arteries in the brainPosted on December 14, 2009
Dr. Lopes is currently one of the world’s foremost endovascular experts in the treatment of brain aneurysms and blocked blood vessels in the brain, having spearheaded a revolution in the treatment of life threatening brain diseases. Locally, he has more years of experience treating patients with blocked or ruptured blood vessels using an endovascular, minimally-invasive approach than any other neurosurgeon and has been featured by all of Chicago’s major media outlets, as well as in the national and international press. His patient success stories are his greatest hallmark – having saved a Chicago paramedic and a Lincolnwood psychologist from the devastating effects of stroke, a North Shore golf fanatic and Chicago executive from invasive surgery to repair an unruptured brain aneurysm, as well as an Elmhurst roofer from a ruptured blood vessel in the brain, just to name a few. In addition to his passion for patient care, Dr. Lopes is an active researcher, lecturer and writer, contributing significantly to the science of endovascular neurosurgery.
