No: So, surgery can be done, but once it is 100% occluded there usually is no purpose to operating because the damage associated is already done. Now, the other side will be operated on and is important to make sure it is open to ensure appropriate flow to the brain. There are always exceptions to these statements and best is to see your own doctor or vascular surgeon for more specific info.
