Last year, a patient visiting from Scotland awoke one morning having difficulty finding words, speaking nonsensically and experiencing seizure-like activity.

She was taken to the emergency room at the INOVA Fairfax Hospital where Dr. Lim was the on-call neurosurgeon. An MRI of her brain was obtained and showed that she had a mass on her brain that was likely a tumor.

A few days later she underwent surgery with Dr. Lim who was able to successfully remove the growth. After a short hospital stay, she was given the “OK” to fly and was accompanied by a nurse to the UK where she underwent chemotherapy and made a full recovery.
She recently sent Dr. Lim a pair of cufflinks thanking him for his wonderful care.

Did you know that more than half of all working Americans will struggle with back pain at some point in their life? Most won't need surgery, but advances in robotic spine surgery allow for faster, safer and more effective procedures for those that do.

The term “laser” may conjure up images of short, bloodless, and highly precise procedures that allow patients to walk out the door pain-free. As a result, “Laser Spine Surgery” has been widely marketed as an alternative to traditional open surgical treatments. Advertisements touting a minimal incision promote relief for chronic back and neck pain. Multimedia spots position laser spine surgery as THE modern, effective alternative to outdated open neck or back surgery techniques.
