Have you noticed that "new hospital smell" around our halls lately? We're putting the finishing touches on some fantastic new spaces for our neuro-rehabilitation, chemotherapy, and MS patients. Take a look for yourself!

We had dozens of Arizona teens on campus today as we hosted Students Supporting Brain Tumor Research (SSBTR). The future tumor warriors watched a brain tumor surgery live in 3D and toured some of the laboratories that make up the Barrow Brain Tumor Research Center. 

More than 80 Arizona schools participate in SSBTR, and the group has raised a colossal $2.25 million for brain tumor research since 2002. The students hope to raise more than $200,000 in 2015.

Tyler, one of our outpatient neurorehabilitation patients, was able to resume his favorite hobby today: playing Xbox. Tyler lost the use of his left hand due to a glioblastoma multiforme tumor, but thanks to a generous donation by +The AbleGamers Foundation and +Evil Controllers he will still be able to play using a special controller that he can manipulate with his foot. We'd say wish him luck playing Madden, but his friends are probably the ones that will need the luck!

"The results are 'very exciting,' said Dr. Nader Sanai of Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix. While he agreed more work is required, 'what you have so far, it's a very positive story.'" Congratulations to +Duke Neurosurgery on their promising discovery! ‪#‎NeuroKnowledge‬

What does dental hygiene have to do with neurology and neurosurgery? More than you might think! Beginning this month, Mesa Community College dental hygiene students will start rotations at our facility. The collaboration stems from the work of Virginia Prendergast, PhD, NP, director of advanced practice nursing here at Barrow, who has spent years researching the negative connection between hospitalization and oral health.
The pral-systemic connection and interprofessional collaborations are among some of dental education's key focus areas. Mesa Community College's (MCC) Dental Hygiene program is addressing both with an exciting new educational experience. Beginning this month, MCC's dental hygiene students are ...

"I spoke this week with Dr. Javier Cardenas, the medical director of the Barrow Concussion and Brain Injury Center in Phoenix. Cardenas also serves on the NFL's head, neck and spine committee and was one of the league's two independent sideline neurologists at the Super Bowl. Although he couldn't speak specifically about Edelman's case -- other than to say: 'If there is a question about evaluations being made, I can assure you they were made' -- he readily acknowledged the shortcomings of the current sideline protocol.

"Lori Simons took the bright orange pill at 3 a.m. Eight hours later, doctors sliced into her brain, looking for signs that the drug was working."

A new study being conducted by our Brain Tumor Research Center aims to speed up the development and testing of new drugs that target deadly brain tumors.
A Phoenix hospital is experimenting with a faster way to test much needed medications for deadly brain tumors. Patients get a single dose of a potential drug, and hours later have their tumor removed to see if the drug had any affect. (Jan. 23) AP

Exciting news from the frontier of neurosurgery! A team of Barrow neurosurgeons led by Dr. Nicholas Theodore implanted the world's first bioresorbable scaffolding in a spinal cord injury patient. It is hoped that the procedure will help the spinal cord heal after an injury, possibly helping people with spinal cord injuries regain some function. A big thank you to Jordan Fallis of Phoenix (pictured below) for volunteering for this clinical trial!

Dr. Chang performed life saving craniotomy surgery after an accident a few years ago.  Thanks Dr. Chang!

This amazing facility went above and beyond all expectations. Nurses in ICU are professional, caring, and attentitive. They watched and monitored through a window outside the room and entered only when needed. They noticed every restless movement and quickly checked to see if assistance or meds would help. After brain tumor removed, pain and nausea were treated quickly (and often.) Room was spotless, private and quiet. With my permission, family was allowed to visit at all hours. Nurses kept them informed and showed patience and understanding with their many questions and concerns. Room cleaning and routine BP and temperature checks were completed when I was awake so as not to disturb my sleep. Dr. Peter Nakaji and his team were amazing. I traveled from San Antonio to Phoenix based on the compassioinate and informative phone interview with Dr. Nakaji. I had seen two neurosurgeons in San Antonio and felt rushed and left with many questions. It was worth the trip as Dr. Nakaji took the time to explain what was needed, how it woud be done, and work with MY schedule to secure a convenient time and date. Without hesitation, I highly recomment Barrow Neurological at St. Joseph's Hospital AND Dr. Peter Nakaji for you or your loved one. They changed my life for the better.

Dr. Moguel-Cobos treated my Mother for years and I have to give the man a the best rating possible. He did not give up on my Mother and made it possible for her to live a much better life for the time she had left.

The service is okay but good luck booking an appointment. I have been trying for 2 weeks to book an appointment and have been told they are waiting for the doctors schedule. How can a business operate like this? I was told I would get a call back in a week. It has been a week and I haven't gotten a call back. I have left multiple messages and still nothing. How hard is it to book an appointment? This is unacceptable to have such poor communication!!!

The best neurological surgeons you can get. Period. Had two successful procedures and both went perfectly. Great care in their wing in St Joseph's.

I went to see Dr. Dahl (sp?) at Barrows Movement Disorder Clinic. Instead of giving me the injections I was referred for, he put me through a series of tests, diagnosed me with Parkinson's Disease and tried to put me on serious brain altering medication (I refused)!!! He was arrogant and condescending. Needless to say I was devastated and distraught and this diagnosis negatively affected my life. A month later I went to a respected neuro who diagnosed me with a much less serious condition. I suffered so much for nothing and could have been hurt more with meds I didn't need. Avoid at all costs!!!!
