The Lenox Bypass™
The Lenox Bypass™ is a new type of intracranial (occurring within the skull) bypass developed at Lenox Hill Hospital. This innovative procedure improves the safety of aneurysm treatment by avoiding neck incisions, drilling into the skull and using long blood vessels required in traditional procedures. The creation of the Lenox Bypass was made possible by the unique, team-based approach of Northwell Health physicians, working collaboratively across departments.
Each year, the Brain Aneurysm Center organizes a Brain Aneurysm Awareness Walk in conjunction with the Brain Aneurysm Foundation. This event draws patients, family and caregivers in the spirit of community and education.
