Griff operated on me in 1994 and 1996 for spinal ependimoma tumors when he was at Mass. General. I couldn't walk when I first saw him. It's years later and I'm walking fine.

This surgeon was paired with Dr. Jackler for maximum BUTCHERY!!! Stay away. I bought into the experiences, hospital reputation, and surgeons education. Do not be suckered. I went in a symmetrical non-damaged girl that had a fairly basic ear tumor and came out with facial nerve damaged significantly, hip dented (looks like a shark ate a hole in my hip) and the additional cost, damage incurred, and personal stress are all you need to know to turn and run. The very worst is right here!!! GUY SENTEN
