Among adults, glioblastoma is the deadliest and most common of the tumors that originate in the brain. A study from Dr. Shwetal Mehta's lab provides insight into a mechanism that allows tumor cells to switch from being fast growers to fast movers. Learn more about this research and how it could lead to new targeted therapies for this highly aggressive brain tumor.
A recent study from Barrow Neurological Institute could lead to new targeted therapies for people with glioblastoma.

Barrow Neurological Institute is featured in an Associated Press story about brain trauma in domestic violence victims. The Barrow Concussion and Brain Injury Center created a program that provides free treatment to homeless domestic violence survivors and recently published a study in the Journal of Neurotrauma looking at this underserved population. Read the AP story here.
CHICAGO (AP) — There are no bomb blasts or collisions with burly linemen in Susan Contreras' past. Her headaches, memory loss and bouts of confused thinking were a mystery until doctors suggested a probable cause: domestic…

My wife had GBM (brain cancer) I had taken her to MD Anderson every 6 weeks for 2.5 years before my wife and I moved to Phoenix and we decided to try Barrow. It was hard getting her on the plane and by the time Dr. Ashby was seeing her she was in the later horrible stages. Dr. Ashby was willing to give it a try, she continued my wife treatment until finally, I had decided enough was enough. Thank you for your efforts Dr. Ashby, I should have sent you a note sooner. But, when you lose someone you really were crazy about, its always just happened, time does not pass. So, maybe its not too late to say thank you.

This was the worst doctor visit experience in my life. NO ONE RETURN YOUR CALLS ! My doctor ordered a lab work, which was done on the same day of my visit and results were sent to her . Two weeks after my lab work and NO ONE contacted me back to discuss the results with me. Called the front desk twice and left messages for my doctor, she never returned my calls. I had to obtain a copy of my lab work and take it to another doctor to find out what is wrong with me . I have been trying to contact their billing office regarding my ridicules bill and have been put on hold for over 20 minutes and unable to talk to a person . This was the absolute worst doctor visit I have ever experienced.

Person I talked to yesterday was not helpful or positive. Clearly disinterested in his job and . acted as though I was bothering him when I tried to get information on making an appointment. Said at least 2 - 3 months IF they could make appointment. Suspect attitude comes from those managing Barrow and filters down through the physicians and nurses and lower level staff. Now rethinking whether I really want treatment in a place with such a pervasive negative attitude.

I have been waiting a month for the doctor to look at my medical records and xrays. I am in so much pain that I can't walk. I know they are busy, but this is ridiculous! I don't even know if Dr. Porter will take my case so it could be a month of wasted time and pain, then I may have to start over again with another doctor. I have never had to wait this long in my life!

Dr. Kris Smith and Dr. Lynn Ashby, Thank you for theawesome job getting after my tumor. After 10 years of survival, It's a "no brainer" who I would recommend to anyone who has the misfortune of needing to shop for a surgeon with a steady hand. Thank you Barrows!

I Highly recommend !!!...Totally love Dr Randall Porter!! First met him when he saved my fathers life. He was 80 years old with a broken neck! I went to him a few years later when I needed back surgery. Great results! Dr Porter then did my husbands back surgery in 2010. Excellent outcome. in May of 2015 my husband needed neck surgery ASAP, once again Dr Porter did his surgery. Everything went beautifully! Next week on May 10th 16. Dr Porter will again do another back surgery on my husband, this one will be more extensive than the last one. He will have a fusion as well. we know the outcome will be great! We both trust Dr Porter with our very lives!...Hes that awesome!! We are very Blessed to know him, and have him as our surgeon. Another truly amazing person with his staff is, Heather!!! She is the person who fits you with your braces there. She is kind, and goes out of her way to make sure everything, goes smoothly for your journey. Thanks Dr Porter!...and Thank you Heather! God Bless you both Always! Pamela Jones
