Please enjoy this talk from Dr. Alan Pitt, renowned Neuroradiologist at Barrow Neurological Institute.

His thought-provoking discussion concerning trends in delivery of treatment and value centered innovation in this time of healthcare reform may raise awareness of the little things we can all do to make a difference. Dr. Pitt has taken a considerable interest in looking outside the box in developing systems to improve delivery of healthcare.

My respect and appreciation for Hope for Hypothalamic Hamartomas continues to grow as I see their efforts in reaching those affected by this condition across continents. For the past 2 weeks I have been in contact with families from Australia, Spain, Russia, Italy, and Tunisia. I have been fortunate to be able to provide them with education regarding symptoms, treatment options, and lifelong challenges. Each of these families gained the confidence to continue the struggle to find answers by connecting with Hope for Hypothalamic Hamartomas .  Kudos to HHH!

Adult patients suffering with HH tend to be hesitant to undergo complicated surgeries. As time passes, we find an increasing patient interest in stereotactic laser thermoablation. It is less invasive than open brain surgery and usually requires only one overnight stay in the hospital. We are happy to announce that one of our patients treated with this technology by Peter Nakaji, MD, is recovering successfully in California. We continue to offer this treatment option to pediatric and adult patients as we see the benefits magnify.
