Margaret Kerbo isn’t sure how long she had been living with Cushing’s disease before being diagnosed and treated, but she suspects it was at least 10 years. The cause was a noncancerous pituitary tumor, which she had removed in October. She said the surgery has greatly improved her quality of life, and now she is sharing her story with others so that they seek treatment sooner rather than later.
Margaret Kerbo will be giving a talk called “Living with the New Normal” at Barrow’s Pituitary Education Day on Saturday, May 14.

Dr. Mark Preul said the confocal laser endomicroscope allows the neurosurgeon to visualize tumor cells while operating on the brain. Using the handheld instrument, the surgeon can immediately detect a region that harbors tumor and actually see the border of the tumor. Learn more about how this tool could improve brain tumor surgery.

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

The absolute worst experience in my life. NO ONE CALLS YOU BACK and NO ONE ANSWERS THE PHONE! My doctor ordered a scan two weeks after my appointment and NO ONE (including the staff at St. Josephs Hospital) called me to inform me. Once I got the procedure scheduled, no one would return my calls or answer. I have gone more than 3 weeks without response or anyone answering my calls. I would rather see the worthless doctor that treated me like I was pushing for pills when I wasn't rather than go through more BS with Barrows or St Josephs.

I've been going to aBarrows for 15 to 20yrs. Excellent service. They stayed with me. Kept testing me. I was a problem case. Thought I had a form of Parkinism. Did an Lp, and it was negative for MS. So they ruled out Ms. Never did an MRI OF MY SPINE. That was what led them to MS. They do what I want done to me.

Received excellent care for my husband, who has had three brain tumors successfully removed near his brain stem, over the last 20 years. We are so grateful to Dr. Spetzler and his team for their expertise and kindness.

MY wife admitted for a stroke. ICU was excellent. After 3 days moved to 5th floor. Nursing call button doesn't work. Gir at the nurse station ignored repeat ed requests for help. Long story short, ended up back in ICU. Now back on the 5th floor awaiting transfer to the rehab center. Same old nursing apathy story. I'm afraid to go home.

Hello Lee- We've made sure to give your feedback to our nursing leadership. We apologize that you felt that our nursing staff treated you and your wife with apathy. Please rest assured that your comments will help us improve our care moving forward.

I had a previous cervical fusion from another spine institute, which ultimately failed. I sought Barrows out, and specifically Dr. Theodore, for his extensive knowledge, and education regarding the spine. I was always seen in a timely manner, and Dr. Theodore and his staff have always answered all my questions. Frankly, I cannot tell you how comforting it is to have this top notch establishment on my side. I've had spine problems for over three years, and Dr. Theodore is still on board to help me resolve my issues. I think the best part of my life is soon to come, thanks to Barrows and Dr. Theodore. Dr. Theodore was also an inspiration to my son. He took the time to talk with him, and this man has a tremendous work load, there is a reason for that fact. He is the best! I cannot imagine the pressure of doing the job he does. Saves and improves the quality of lives. Saint Josephs Hospital was excellent on my last surgery, and I cannot say enough about the staff during my stay. I will always recommend anyone with spine problems to Barrows, and Dr. Theodore. I will be undergoing another spine surgery with Dr. Theodore in the near future, for a thoracic issue recently discovered. I feel there is no better man or location in the state for this to happen. If you choose Dr. Theodore and Barrows in general, you will be in the best of hands. Thank you Barrows, Dr. Theodore, Daytrel, Julie, and Amanda. You all are very kind and helpful.
