The results of the survey are compiled so your identity is never revealed, unless you tell us to share something specific. If you do want to share your experience with other patients, tell us that too.

Patients sharing their medical stories can be very helpful and informative to individuals who are looking for a physician to care for them. If you would like to help others by sharing your medical story, we want to hear from you. It’s simple, click on this link to provide a little information, then expect a member of our marketing team to contact you with more details how your story will be shared.  See some of the current stories patients have shared click here.

When the email hits your INBOX, we hope that you will take a few minutes to click on the link to tell us about your experience, how we did and where we can improve. 

Mick Perez-Cruet, M.D., president of the Minimally Invasive Neurological Society (MINS), and several MHSI neurosurgeons are members of the society. In addition to Dr. Perez-Cruet, our neurosurgeons Daniel Fahim, M.D., Robert Johnson, M.D., Daniel Pieper, M.D., Omar Qahwash, M.D., Richard Fessler, M.D. and physiatrist Henry Tong, M.D., are invited faculty to the upcoming national MINS Conference in Detroit.  

During this two-day national conference many of our doctors will teach about minimally invasive skull base and spinal techniques through cadaveric training and didactic lectures in skull base endoscopy and cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine including proper patient selection for these procedures.  The event offers a maximum of 13.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM for attending clinical professionals, sponsored by William Beaumont Hospitals.

This annual clinical conference will be held from August 9-11, 2013  at the Detroit Marriott in the Renaissance Center and neurosurgeons from across the country and internationally will be attending. Our neurosurgeons are excited to share and exchange knowledge about these procedures to  better serve patients.
