I am not sure if all of you know about my brother. He has a grade 3 glioma and in Canada doctor could not operate on him as they said he will be paralized. They recommended that he has to do radiation immediately on a tumor larger than an orange. He is 23 now. His Radio oncologist told him if he doesn't do radiation, he only has 2 months. Also, bcz they did a biopsy here in Canada, they told us the tumor is grade 3. Also, we talked to many top doctors in USA, such as UCLS, MASS and Duke University and all of them said it is not OPERABLE.
We went to Germany to a amazing doctor who is famous worldwide. He performs miracles. The hospital works is under his supervision and looks like a 5 start hotel. Staff are amazing, you see your doc within 1 hour. No waiting.
Long story short, this amazing professor/surgeon did functional MRI on my brother and told him that he will take at least 80 percent of this tumor out and took 100%. His surgery took almost 12 hours with 4 MRI during operation to ensure the did a complete cleanup as much as they can see. His right hand and leg became slightly weak which was expected. The surgeon promised to return any weakness back within 3 weeks with physio Therapy. And all strength is back 100% and he plays his guitar with no issue.
They checked the whole tumor and that is when we found it is grade 3 not 2 as canada told us. He is finishing his radiation in Germany as well.
I am writing this to tell all of you to look around more than your own country. Going to Germany is cheaper than having an operation done in USA.
The name of the doctor is Prof. Samii and he is in Hannover Germany. Most of the head of neuro surgeon universities in USA know him.
I love to answer any questions.
