This is a great opportunity to come and learn more about what the latest options are!

Dr Efron is a Stanford-trained neurosurgeon who has been practicing for over 22 years and specializes in TN, cerebrovascular surgery and skull base surgery..

Hanbery Neurosurgical Society, and various state and regional neurosurgical associations. He will be speaking on the current options available for neurosurgical treatment of TN.

This meeting is open to your significant others too!!

Sincerely, Lily

PS: If you come from MacArthur BART, take Telegraph towards W. MacArthur Blvd and then under the Fwy until you reach 34th St. Turn Left, go up 34th until you reach Webster St, then turn Right. From there the hospital is on the right side about 1/2 block down.. If you are used to walking in the city you should be fine with the distance, it is about 6 blocks, not long ones. Unfortunately no shuttle runs on the weekends.

If you drive in, do not park in the parking garage that is just off of Broadway, it closes at 2:00pm, we learned the hard way!

Just kicking this discussion back up to remind folks to come.

See you there,


Kicking back up for the morning crowd...the meeting is today (Saturday).
