Barrow Neurosurgeon Dr. Francisco Ponce has performed his 500th Deep Brain Stimulation surgery. In DBS surgery, a pacemaker-like device called a neurostimulator is implanted under the skin in the chest and connected to an electrode in the brain. The device delivers electrical signals to the brain, regulating abnormal signals and providing symptom relief for people with essential tremor, Parkinson’s disease, or dystonia. Read the full story and watch the video here!
Arizona resident Cyndi Carver underwent the procedure about 2 months ago to relieve her tremors, which made it difficult for her to perform everyday tasks.

Scottsdale patent attorney Steven Lisa funded a new prototyping lab where Barrow residents work to design new medical devices. To streamline the process of bringing a new device to market, Lisa helped establish a partnership with Arizona State University that allows law students and faculty to act as legal counsel for Barrow for the purposes of drafting provisional patent applications.

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.

Do women fare worse than men after a traumatic brain injury? This question has been debated a lot. Dr. Glynnis Zieman, sports neurology fellow at the Barrow Concussion and Brain Injury Center, discusses gender differences that may explain why TBI incidence, symptoms, and recovery seem to vary between men and women.
Research has shown that traumatic brain injury incidence, symptoms, and recovery vary between men and women.

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.

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.

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.

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.

My girlfriend had a second stent placed, the entire time the staff had poor attitudes, wouldn't or couldn't answer questions. I was constantly ignored when I wasn't being talked down to like a child.
