Abstract

From humble beginnings in the former Soviet Union, Fedor A. Serbinenko, M.D., Ph.D., became a leading figure at Moscow's famed Burdenko Neurosurgery Institute. While there, he invented and perfected the technique of balloon embolization, which was destined to change the practice of neurovascular surgery forever. We present the life and achievements of the father of endovascular neurosurgery.
