At the Department of Neurosurgery, we are excited to see so many students who are passionate about contributing to the advancement of medical research.

During Santiago’s latest follow-up appointment, Nancy expressed her satisfaction with the endoscopic surgical approach and the Cranial Remolding Program. She told us that Dr. Jimenez and Darren have been there for her family every step of the way.

Agnes' Story

Last October, Agnes Mensah suffered a ruptured aneurysm and passed out in her home. When her family found her they immediately called 911. Due to the complicated nature of her case, Agnes’ doctors decided to have her airlifted to UHS from her hometown in Corpus Christi. When she arrived Jeremiah Johnson, MD, performed a coiling procedure to block the flow of blood into her brain and a shunting procedure to relieve the pressure that had built up inside her head.

After three weeks of neurocritical care and a period of rehabilitation therapy, Agnes has made tremendous progress. Her family was amazed by her recovery: “The prognosis was not good at all. But with the support of our friends and the doctor's work, she has made a fantastic turnaround."
