Los Angeles, CA |
I'm writing for my friend who had a melanoma metastasis removed from his spine by Dr. Mike Chen. The five-hour surgery, including vertebral fusion, went without incident; the surgical site healed quickly and perfectly. My friend still has cancer and is getting radiation and immune therapy, but Dr. Chen's part went smoothly and successfully. We found Dr. Chen to be pleasant and easy to talk to. He was the first doctor who actually showed us the scans and explained what was going on. We're fans.

Dr. Michael Chen is a phenomenal neurosurgeon. We were in a grave situation with gas in my husbands brain following a craniotomy that was performed weeks prior. Dr. Chen attempted to release it but the procedure wasn't effective. Dr. Chen discussed the need for a craniotomy and we agreed. The surgical team was called in 2am and 4 1/2 hrs later my husband was stable and soon to be on the mend. I can't thank Dr. Chen and the surgical team enough for saving my husbands life.

I was looking for a neurosurgeon to remove a tumor in my lower spine badly because I was starting to have trouble walking . Dr Chen helped me take care of my problem within 2 and half weeks after my oncologist referred me to him. And I was able to walk on 2nd day after surgery. Totally grateful for Dr Chen.

After receiving a diagnosis of GBM and told that there was no chance of removing the tumor from another doctor on Monday we were able to see Dr. Chen that Friday. He reviewed the MRIs we brought and walked in the room and said he could remove 70 - 90% of the tumor. We once again had hope in our lives. The surgery was scheduled for 2 weeks later (our choice as it was the week before Christmas and we wanted to celebrate the holidays at home). During the surgery Dr. Chen was able to remove 98%!
