Mercy Heath, Mayfield Brain & Spine, and OHC partnering for brain tumor center, care
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A new local partnership could improve care for brain tumor patients.
Quite often, when diagnosed with a brain tumor, you have to go to a lot of different places to get your care. On Tuesday, there was an announcement from a team that is trying to change that.
Joe Feds says that, a few months ago, he began experiencing some very strange symptoms.
“I would see double vision, I would go, like, cross-eyed when I went to my left,” said Feds.
It turned out that Feds had a brain tumor. A big one.
That led to a big surgery and a confirmation from Dr. Vince Dinapoli that it was benign.
“I don't think I could have had any better of a team just to take me through it all,” said Dr. Dinapoli.
That same team announced on Tuesday a new partnership.
“The goal now is to sort of form a comprehensive center so that patients can get that care coordinated in one place,” said Dr. Dinapoli.
Mercy Health partners, along with Mayfield Brain and Spine and Oncology Hematology Care are launching a brain tumor center at the Jewish Hospital.
“It’s a group effort to put together, to just kind of provide the best kind of care for patients with this diagnosis. We want to provide cutting edge care, not just the standard care,” said Dr. Dinapoli.
The center itself based at Mercy Health Jewish Hospital, where doctors from Mayfield as well as OHC also provide care.
