Dr. Arthur Heads Up Clinical Trials for New Aneurysm Device

Semmes Murphey is proud to have Dr. Adam Arthur on our team of excellent neurosurgeons. He was the principal investigator for clinical trials on the WEB Aneurysm Embolization System, a newly FDA approved device that is used to treat a wide range of aneurysms via a woven spherical basket and catheter.

Dr. Arthur was the first neurosurgeon in the U.S. to use the new device which debuted at Methodist University Hospital on Monday, January 28th. Dr. Daniel Hoit and Dr. Lucas Elijovic were also involved in the clinical trials and will go on to treat patients with the new device.

The new device will add a safer, minimally-invasive option to treating aneurysms and also has the potential to cut down on the recovery time, offering patients the ability to go home the same day of surgery as opposed to a multiple-day hospital stay.

Stay tuned for more updates as the device is used in more procedures by our Semmes Murphey physicians.
