Laser Generated Stereotactic Thermoablation with Real-Time MR Thermography is becoming a buzz phrase within the HH community. As medical professionals are often cautiously optimistic about new technologies, but everything we are seeing points to successful patient outcomes with less risk than traditional surgical removal of HH tissue. The neurosurgeons at Barrow, specifically Drs. Andrew Shetter and Peter Nakaji, have treated several patients presenting with a variety of neurological disorders and seen significant changes on MRI scans.

The Barrow HH team is excited about this system and continues to treat HH patients with success. Our first HH patient was treated at the end of last year and continues to be seizure free since surgery.
