Cerebral vascular diseases, Spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), intracranial aneurysm, Brain tumor, Brain trauma, Hydrocephlus
Professional Highlights
Dr. Gao Chen is especially expert in the open surgery of cerebral vascular diseases: e.g. clipping of intracranial aneurysms, resection of arteriovenous malformation, resection of hemangioma. 
Dr. Gao Chen is also one of the most enthusiastic advocators of emergency management of spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhages. His endeavor has been paid back by the reduced mortality of spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhages in Zhejiang Province. His experience in this field has been shared by more and more colleagues in Neurosurgery around Zhejiang Province.
