Dr Niemann and his team saved my life! It has been a year since he performed surgery on my ruptured AVM and I am so grateful to say that my "life", that special part that is "me", is intact and better than ever! Like, WOW! I have a higher IQ, attended advanced classes, graduated high school with almost a year and a half of college credits and read the New England Journal of Medicine for fun. I have always said that my brain is my best asset. As a child in gifted class, my chosen nickname was cerebellum. Talking total nerd here. Brain surgery is terrifying for anybody. As a soul who has always been acutely aware of my intelligence and furthering the capabilities of my learning, having a ruptured AVM and needing surgery on my cherished brain is the most devastating life occurrence that could happen to me. Dr. Niemann and his AMAZING team brought "me" back to "me". I am grateful beyond any expression of mere words. Thank you for my life!
