A nationally recognized Twin Cities neurosurgeon and FCI physician, Dr. Mahmoud Nagib, reviewed Bahman’s medical records. He determined the likelihood that a treatment plan in the US, which was not available to Bahman in his home country, could make a significant quality of life difference for this child.
Dr. Nagib collaborated with a number of leading Twin Cities physicians including Dr. Anne Bendel (Pediatric Hematology/Oncology), and a list of radiologists, ophthalmologists and pediatric internists on the complex surgery. The result… the entire tumor was removed and found to be benign! Following this happy news, Bahman was able to return home to Iran.
