Doctors were not optimistic, but Lifeflighted me to Tufts. Dr Malek met us on the roof and rushed me in to the OR to perform a brand new procedure to remove a blood clot from my Basilary artery and repair the tears in my Vetebrial artery. Not only did I survive this type of devastating brain stem stem stroke - After 6 week hospital stay & year of therapies, I have now recovered to the point people cant tell I have stroke at all! How do you spell hero? A-D-E-L-M-A-L-E-K

My wife wife suffered a burst aneurysm (about the size of a "shooter" marble) in her brain. She lost consciousness for about three weeks. Dr. Malek's emergency surgery the day of her "incident" saved her life. She is back 100%. If you met her today you would never know what she went through. I cannot say enough about the care provided by Dr. Malek and the entire Tufts team of doctors, nurses and other personnel. The follow up care is excellent as well. Thank God for Dr. Malek!

Dr. Malek and his team at Tufts Medical Center were phenomenal in their care for me after I suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm on Dec 3, 2013. Dr. Malek and team performed emergency surgery on that day and saved my life. The many doctors, nurses, and staff at Tufts attending to my serious medical condition and also comforting and supporting my family were beyond compare. I am thrilled to say I have made a complete recovery and am profoundly grateful for the tremendous care I received.
