Agnes Mensah


Last October, Agnes Mensah suffered a ruptured aneurysm and passed out in her home. When her family found her they immediately called 911. Due to the complicated nature of her case, Agnes’ doctors decided to have her airlifted to UHS from her hometown in Corpus Christi. When she arrived Jeremiah Johnson, MD, performed a coiling procedure to block the flow of blood into her brain and a shunting procedure to relieve the pressure that had built up inside her head.

After three weeks of neurocritical care and a period of rehabilitation therapy, Agnes has made tremendous progress. Her family was amazed by her recovery: “The prognosis was not good at all. But with the support of our friends and the doctor's work, she has made a fantastic turnaround."
