Treating the Untreatable

1958

Neurosurgeon Dr. Charles Drake devised various techniques to repair cerebral aneurysms, just as doctors began working on parts of the brain once thought inoperable. Not only did patients come to him from all over the world, surgeons also made the pilgrimage to learn his technique.

The first chair of Western University’s department of clinical neurological sciences, Drake’s work has saved countless patients from hemorrhagic stroke, permanent nerve damage and death.
