Now with new coils, stents, and flow diverters, more than 90 percent of aneurysms can be treated with this approach.
Conversation with Dr. Manish Taneja, Neurointervention and Brain Aneurysm Specialist and Mount Alvernia Hospital
Important Breakthroughs in Treatment of Neurological Conditions:
Mount Alvernia: What are some of the most important recent breakthroughs in the treatment of neurological conditions?
Dr. Manish Taneja: One of the most important recent advances has been in clot removal for acute stroke and better endovascular devices for the management of brain aneurysms. Just a decade back, only 50 to 60 percent of aneurysms could be treated with a minimally invasive approach. Now with new coils, stents, and flow diverters, more than 90 percent of aneurysms can be treated with this approach. (We provide care for brain aneurysm treatments at Supreme Vascular and Interventional Clinic in Singapore.)
Mount Alvernia: Given Singapore’s ageing population, do you think that people are becoming more aware of the modifiable risk factors for conditions such as stroke and dementia, and taking preventive measures?
Dr. Manish Taneja: Our Singapore community is by and large well aware of health-related issues. We are fortunate to have one of the best healthcare systems on the planet in both public and private practice, which is unique. Of course, patient education is a process that is constantly evolving as our understanding and practice evolves.
How to Prevent A Neurological Condition:
Mount Alvernia: If you were to give Singaporeans one piece of advice in terms of preventing neurological conditions, what would it be?
Dr. Manish Taneja: Please choose an active healthy lifestyle and get check-ups on a regular basis. It is better to prevent a neurological condition, if possible, rather than to treat it. (Read about effective prevention of a brain aneurysm in our blog post, “The Ultimate Guide to Brain Aneurysm”.)
How to Look after Your Neurological Health:
Mount Alvernia: How do you look after your own neurological and general health in your day to day life?
Dr. Manish Taneja: I exercise regularly stay fit and eat a healthy diet. I also enjoy life to the fullest!
Mount Alvernia: What is the most rewarding or fulfilling aspect of practising neurology?
Dr. Manish Taneja: Getting a patient well. There’s nothing better than hearing a patient who has fully recovered say ‘thank you’ with a smile on their face!

Put Brain Aneurysm on Your Health Radar
Did you experience the worst headache of your life? Could it be a brain aneurysm that ruptures, which means bleeding in the brain? Thoughts could be racing through your mind. Then what is the difference between unruptured (a weak or thin spot on an artery in the brain that balloons) or ruptured brain aneurysm? If you’re wondering, then the Supreme Vascular and Interventional Clinic is here to help. It’s important to look out for the tell-tale brain aneurysm symptoms, signs, causes, and risk factors.
Dr. Manish Taneja has been performing brain aneurysm treatments since 1995 from surgical clipping to latest minimally invasive procedures. Each patient is unique as is the size and location of the aneurysm. Your brain has different conditions to treat the aneurysm and artery vessel walls of a blood vessel in the brain. This calls for personalised brain aneurysm treatment depending on your symptoms, family, history, medication, and more. A simple CT scan could be just what the doctor ordered and the first step in early detection and prevention of a brain aneurysm.
