Karina’s Story – Brain Surgery


When newlywed Karina woke up one morning with a painful headache and numbness in her face, she was incredibly concerned. An MRI detected an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) in her brain, a condition that causes an abnormal connection between the arteries and veins. She turned to Englewood Hospital and Medical Center to perform delicate and complex brain surgery after learning that if left untreated, the blood vessels could rupture and lead to fatal bleeding in her brain.
