Dr. Vollmer is the best Neurosurgeon I have ever met and he saved my life! I ended up in the emergency room in 2011 for a non-related issue and found out that I had a Glioblastoma brain tumor a size of a tennis ball that had to be removed immediately. I was lucky enough to have Dr. Vollmer complete my surgery and he was able to remove 98% of the tumor! I am 4 years out tumor free! Thanks to Dr. V!!
