Dr. Sacho is one of the few physicians to have undertaken both open surgical and endovascular training to treat cerebrovascular disorders and is therefore in a unique position to offer patients options for both surgical and endovascular treatment of their cerebrovascular disorders.

After graduating top of both his medical school class and his University in the natural sciences, Dr. Sacho pursued an international career in neurosurgery, with residencies in Manchester UK, and completing his neurosurgical fellowship training in Toronto, Canada. He then moved the US to further his clinical and research interests. His research focuses on applying novel techniques to image and perform surgeries on the blood vessels of the brain.

Because I travel so far to come to the hospital they went over and above for me to have my MRI that day. I was saved a trip.

Dr Sacho and everyone in the neurology department that we had interactions with were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and attentive. I would never want my daughter to have a different neurosurgeon. He is phenomenal in that when my daughter needed brain surgery, he took the time to personally call me on 2 separate occasions to explain and listen to all my concerns. I've never had a doctor go above and beyond my expectations.

He showed personal interest and concern for how I,as a patient, would feel anxiety and he conveyed a sense of calmness to me. Listened closely to my concerns and answered my questions with clarity without rushing through things. Very reassuring to me

Dr Sacho was so very kind and considerate as well as being incredibly knowledgeable with great expertise. I'm so glad I made a appt to see Dr Sacho and he has referred me to another Dr at Froedtert.

very pleasant - and willing at least give me options to help me. after being in pain 24/7 for so long - years. I always have hope and think positive. I felt comfortable talking to him. I know there is always a chance nothing can be done, but he gave me alternatives. All I can do is try and whatever the outcome, at least I know I tried and so did he. I appreciate that so much.

Dr. Sacho was a great provider handled everything very professionally and right away. He made sure to continue checking in and give us all the information needed for care.

An extremely skillful surgeon and I was lucky to have him for my necessary surgery.

I found it a bit unprofessional when he took out his phone and read a message? With no apology or explanation. I did sit and cry for awhile because I was not given any advice on home care, except "avoid triggers". I think very highly of Dr. Sacho, he did see me, despite the impolite nurses telling me he wouldn't and not to expect a call back (her name was Andrea.) He did express concern, reasoning, a path, and comfort knowing he's in this for full treatment.

The doctor and staff went out of their way to give me excellent care. I to have surgery with Dr Sacho and had a reaction when I got to the office he and his staff could not have been more kind and understanding. I would just like you to know that. Thank you
