The neurosurgeons at Medical City in Dallas are the best in the world! You can't get any better care than at that hospital also!!! I hope everything works out for you! God bless!

Thanks everybody for your info on neurosurgeons. I will be checking these out I went to Dr. Preston a few days ago and was not impressed at all. He said my meningioma was nothing to worry about. I thought he would at least order an MRI or follow up visits which he didn't despite the fact that I've been having severe headaches with nausea and vomiting and ringing in my left ear. Has anybody known anyone with a meningioma and what treatment they had? I'd appreciate any info.

You are correct.
Dr. Desaloms is one of the best in the country. He also confers with Dr. Virginia Stark-Vance, one of the top oncologist in the nation.

He is one of the most compassionate/caring men one will ever know.

Dr. Christopher Michael or his partner Dr. Michael Barnett at Baylor, Dallas. They are in the Barnett Tower.

Preston is a young, well trained neurosurgeon. I've seen the results of his work and he's made the difference in many lives. What I really like about him, if a case is too complex for him as one surgeon to do, he'll make the referral in the patient's best interest. You don't always get that perspective in the medical community.

My little brother (20yrs old) just recently found out that he has a cyst growing on his brain that is surrounded by spinal fluid. The Dr. he is seeing says they have never seen one this big and causing such problems. They are going to discuss his case with the Chief at the hospital. I cant just wait around for them to find a Dr. who is willing to open my brothers skull who doesnt have the experience we would prefer. I know there is a Dr. out there that wants to put this in a medical journal and get published. And that has the experience. Can anyone tell me anything about TOP Neurosurgeons in Dallas?

- So sorry to hear that, my mother was just told she has one. She is 84, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND Dr. Dickerman in Plano!!!!! Point blank he told me "Your mom will die in surgery" (she is 84) I was stunned. Then as he caught what he said - he CANCELLED THE SURGERY!
Said, "He didn't want to do it anyway", but my dad begged him. How cruel, how cold. I was left stunned and now we search for someone who takes Medicare. Left confused and tearful.

The title of the post just cracked me up. I almost blew coffee out of my nose. I think I would do some research, but not on topix. I dont think I would trust one word from this place.

A very dear friend has been diagnosed with a meningioma. She has resources that most of us do not but she has gone to Minnesota to the Mayo clinic and is taking treatments there. She was given the choice at the Mayo clinic of taking her treatments there or having them in Dallas. She did not ask for a doctor's name in Dallas but the clinic told here she could get excellent care at Medical City.
