Go to UCSF Neurosurgery
Self-verified patient of Dr. Gordon Tang - Posted on November 23rd, 2015
Dr. Tang attempted to remove a pituitary tumor. He failed. He went into my head at the wrong angle, caused a spinal fluid leak, and then ended the surgery before removing the tumor. I spent over a week in the ICU at Alta Bates. He then sent me to Sandeep Kunwar at UCSF, who is an expert in the field Avoid Alta Bates neurosurgery for pituitary tumors! Go to UCSF where they have lots of experience and a high success rate!

Dr. Tang is not only a great surgeon, he is also a real person. And that's kind of unique as surgeon's go.I had spine surgery on my neck. He was quick to order tests, make follow up appointment and get the surgery scheduled quickly. I was in such pain I really needed to get this done asap.Best part of dealing with Dr. Tang is that he is very clear in explaining exactly what the problem is and exactly what he is going to do in the surgery. He is honest about the pain to follow. He doesn't just say that "You will have some pain." He says it won't be a walk in the park. I like him and respect him.
