Doctors at Barrow Neurological Institute are amazing! Dr Lawton’s neurovascular guy Dr Albuquerque just embolized my cerebellum AVM and believes it’s cured! Repeat angio in March 2019 to reassess. The team there is wonderful!
I went for 2nd opinion and am thankful I did.

That’s wonderful! I too had the good fortune of vacationing a BNI back in 1993. Dr. Lawton wasn’t there yet. But Dr’s Zabramski & Greene were. I only wish this site was around back then.

Nikolas was fortunate to be cared for by the BNI surgeons and nurses who are the best in the world.

Now he can look forward to an AVM-free life.

Happy 2019 folks, may it be a healthy one for all of us, even if we have to claw and fight for our health.
I love hearing all of this positivity.


This is so amazing to hear. God bless Michael Lawton and all the other survivors on this page. It is especially hard seeing a child go through this. Wishing you and the family the best!
