Interventional neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, and interventional neurologists can treat cerebral aneurysms by endovascular coiling, neurosurgeons are the only ones that can clip and aneurysm.

In brief: Neurosurgeon

Some center have teams of doctors that deal with cerebral aneurysms.
Teams can include specially trained interventional radiologists, but neurosurgeons are the most well equipped doctors to deal with this problem. You don't want to see someone who sees a small number of patients with this problem. Complex problems are best treated (imo) by doctors (or teams) with lots of experience in that field.
