Dr. Al-Mefty removed a large and difficult Meningioma in September, 2014. He is a wonderful surgeon and very caring person. My experience with him and everyone at Brigham and Women's was outstanding. I flew into Boston on a Saturday and Dr. Al-Mefty met me and my sister (with another sister on speaker phone) and patiently reviewed the procedure and answered all our questions over a period of two hours on Sunday morning! We were so impressed by his talent and his care.

Had a rare brain base tumor removed recently. Heard on numerous occasions he is probably the best neurosurgeon in this country and we feel blessed that he took on the resection of tumor. Entire staff at BWH are exceptional.

His surgery skills are unmatched. My tumor was in a very difficult location to remove, and likely could have caused me serious complications afterwards. He got it all, and even though the surgery was 14 hours, I was back to work part time in three weeks.
