Dr. David Newell explains what clipping of an aneurysm is. When the clip is applied, the blood supply is cut off to the aneurysm. A small incision is made behind the hairline, a piece of bone is removed from the skull, and then the brain is lifted up and a high powered microscope is used to dissect out the cerebral vessel. Aneurysm clipping is major surgery. Once an aneurysm is removed, there is no surveillance for reoccurrence of that aneurysm because the chance of that aneurysm coming back is so small.
