I would absolutely recommend Dr Bendok & team performed an embolization and right frontal craniotomy for microsurgical resection of complex arteriovenous malformation. I could not ask for a better team of doctors and nurses. Extremely professional, unbeleivable bedside manners and was able to explain everything so that i understood what my diagnoses and treatment plans were.

Dr. Bendok is an incredibly gifted surgeon and kind man. He saved my life. A few months ago they found an AVM in my head and I had to get it removed or it would have killed me. Dr. Bendok and his staff got me in right away and were kind, supportive and extremely helpful throughout the entire process. He made me feel safe and comforted going in to a tricky surgeon. He completely removed my AVM and saved my life. It was a privilege having him be my doctor.

I am a very unique case as I have been told by many. Dr. Bendok went above and beyond to help figure out what is going on, after many test and some trial treatments things are looking up although I will not get my sight back not due to anything he could fix. I figure at some time I will be seeing him again and I will be glad it is him at the other end of my repairs. Thank you He is your man to see if no one else can fix you. Dr Mithun also assisted and is a great guy.

Dr. Bendok and Dr. Zimmerman at Mayo Clinic saved my life and clipped my aneurysm just in time before it ruptured. I am on day 7 of recovery, and I am so grateful to them for the extra thought and care they put into deciding how to go about the surgery. They got me in right away and did open brain surgery. I'm 45 & feel blessed to be alive and well and pray I never get anything like this again. The Mayo clinic is filled with wonderful doctors & nurses & they took great care of me-Thank You!!
