Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. deLotbinière "My approach to treating patients is first of all to give them my undivided attention.  To listen to them, to allow them to tell their story.  The examination and treatment should always flow from an understanding of who the patient is an individual, not simply seeing a patient as a set of symptoms.  Once trust has been established, it becomes much easier to explore the range of potential solutions, the point being that what is reasonable for one may not be the right solution for another person.  At all times it is the patient that comes first."

I suffered Trigeminal Neuralgia for 10 years until insurance decided to pay for my surgery. I was 57 in that time (2010.) and my first intention was Gama Knife, but Dr. deLotbiniere adviced me (since I was in excellent shape) to go to MVD! Surgery and three days in hospital were an excellent...more

Dr. d Lotbinière is amazing, he cured my daughter of Trigeminal Neuralgia, gave her life back when other ‘Specialists’/famous medical centers couldn’t.. Her MRIs showed no vessels near the nerve so not a candidate for MVD. Years of suffering and cyberknife radiation before we found Dr. d Lotbinière...more
