My name is Allan Friedman and I am a neurosurgeon. I chose this field because of my strong commitment and desire to help patients afflicted with neurological diseases.
Malignant brain tumors ruin the lives of healthy, vibrant members of our society. Advances in medicine and surgery fostered through dedicated research have given us the tools to provide these patients with additional useful time.
Hope to me means: that with continued hard work and dedication malignant brain tumors will be curable in the future.
