We take great pride in our patients and their courage to overcome physical challenges, from pain management to cancer care and treatment.
"In December 2007 I was diagnosed with lung cancer when admitted to White Plains Hospital by my primary care physician, to determine what had caused a tingling sensation to the left side of my face and three fingers on my left hand. I remained in the hospital for four days and, after further testing, four additional tumors were found in my brain. It was quite a shock as I hadn’t smoked in thirty years and never suffered from symptoms associated with either lung or brain cancer.
In early 2008 I received 15 consecutive days of radiation which unfortunately, did not have a positive effect in treating the brain tumors. My doctors then recommended that I meet with Dr. Alain de Lotbiniere to discuss gamma knife surgery. The procedure was done in June 2008 at NWH cancer center by Dr. Alain de Lotbiniere and assisted by Dr. Alfred Tinger of NWH. The doctors and their staff could not have been more comforting than they were. The procedure wasn’t nearly as scary as I thought it would be because their professionalism and warmth put me at ease immediately.
To date, three of the tumors are not visible and the largest has decreased in size. If you’re a candidate for this “surgery” I highly recommend both Dr. de Lotbiniere and NWH."
