Barrow Neurological Institute on Prime Time! June 5, 2014

Posted by mvarlan in Uncategorized.

Barrow Neurological Institute was mentioned last week in the series premier of The Night Shift, a new medical drama series on NBC. This show is comparable to Grey’s Anatomy and ER. Barrow is credited in the episode for our surgical innovation during an internal decapitation case.  We have received a lot of national news coverage in the past couple of years about this procedure; and a Phoenix toddler, Micah Andrews, was saved at Barrow and made headlines. Now, it is primetime!

The Night Shift

Transcript: You’re going to need to attach the skull directly to the spine.
What keeps it in place?
A titanium loop. use the wires to secure it to the base of the skull and remove a piece of his rib to fortify it. They’ve had success with the procedure at barrow in phoenix. I observed it at a seminar there last spring. It will work. It’s our best option.
