by Garni Barkhoudarian
The Pacific Neuroscience Institute is pleased to announce the launch of a new Center of Excellence. The Pacific Adult Hydrocephalus Center is led by neurosurgeon, Garni Barkhoudarian, MD, and neurologist, Daniel Franc, MD, PhD. As specialists in their field, they provide high level care for adult patients who exhibit symptoms of conditions related to hydrocephalus and neurological disorders such as dementia, carcinomatous meningitis and cysts and tumors affecting the brain’s ventricular region.
We offer leading-edge diagnostic techniques such as advanced MRI and work with our patients providing comprehensive management of their disease with programs including neuropsychological evaluation as necessary. Our surgeons operate in our state-of-the-art facility using minimally invasive and/or endoscopic surgical techniques that allow patients to recover more rapidly.
