    Dr. Lang is an absolutely incredible neurosurgeon. I currently have an Astrocytoma Grade ll on the left insular brain that he did an awake craniotomy on 4 weeks ago. The tumor wasn't able to be completely removed but he safely removed 90% of the tumor without harming my speech or right side of the body function whatsoever. Incredible man who makes sure every detail is completely taken care of. Highly recommend him to anyone who needs his specialty!
