Biography

Dr. Sacho is one of the few physicians to have undertaken both open surgical and endovascular training to treat cerebrovascular disorders and is therefore in a unique position to offer patients options for both surgical and endovascular treatment of their cerebrovascular disorders.

After graduating top of both his medical school class and his University in the natural sciences, Dr. Sacho pursued an international career in neurosurgery, with residencies in Manchester UK, and completing his neurosurgical fellowship training in Toronto, Canada. He then moved the US to further his clinical and research interests. His research focuses on applying novel techniques to image and perform surgeries on the blood vessels of the brain.
