In brief: Absolutely

Neurosurgeons are consulted on every brain hemorrhage that enters a hospital.
Most of the patients with intracerebral hemorrhages survive- although their symptoms will vary by the location and size of their stroke. Mortality is significantly elevated in large hemorrhages. Aneurysm hemorrhage has a high mortality. Subdural hemorrhages are often not fatal.
