Experience
In addition to providing comprehensive neurological care, Dr. Abdu is one of very few U.S. board-certified neurosurgeons with the surgical capabilities to provide patients the option of traditional surgical or minimally invasive endovascular treatment. Patients with complex neurovascular diseases, such as brain aneurysms, often benefit from her wide breadth of treatment options. Prior to EvergreenHealth, Dr. Abdu served as the Director of Cerebrovascular at the Carondelet Neurological Institute in Tucson, Arizona, where she successfully founded and lead the cerebrovascular program. Dr. Abdu is dedicated to serving our Eastside community with the same passion and expert skill.
Philosophy
Receiving a neurological diagnosis can be difficult on patients and their families, so I strive to create a unique level of trust and comfort with my patients, and I encourage them to bring their family members into the conversation. My philosophy of care is to listen and understand the concerns and symptoms of each patient. We will first explore nonsurgical treatments. If those are not effective, then we will look at surgical options to improve my patient's quality of life. I would like each and every patient, and their family members, to leave my office with the comfort of understanding the next phase of their care with all questions answered.
Personal Information
When not working, I enjoy the great outdoors with my family.
