Outcome of tumor resection of very rare brain tumor was poor at first, but patient significantly improved over the next year. Unfortunately about 25% of the tumor remains. I believe Dr. Blackburn is a very skilled surgeon and did the best he could with such a rare tumor and location in the brain (on the anterior wall of the third ventricle). He has excellent bedside manner, is extremely caring, and continues to see the patient on a regular basis post surgery just to see how she's doing. He was the right person for the job and we are grateful!
