God bless Dr. Sekhar. Thank you for giving Heidi and I our life. Dr. Sekhar is a hero. You will be blessed to have him as your surgeon.||Respond|

||6/4/05||5||5||5||Doctor Laligam Sekhar saved my life on March 25th, 1991. At Presbyterian University Hospital, in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, he removed a 4 inch basal intracranial meniongioma. I was diagnosed in October 1990, in Toronto, after having suffered a grand mal seizure. The tumor had effected the brain stem, the pons and cerebellum. After two unsucsesful attempt, I was sent to the Center for Cranial Based Surgery, in Pittsburgh. Doctor Shandraneth Sen, Dr Sekhar's "protoge" performed the first 12 hour operation; Doctor Sekhar did the second one, where the tumor was actually resected. I owe my life to him. God bless him. - James Papastamos||Respond|
