A second chance at life.
Edward Cerninka spent 30 years painting houses in the Phoenix historic district. Thanks to Dr. Marco Marsella and the BrainPath surgical tool used at Abrazo Central Campus
, not even a brain tumor could stop him from doing what he loves.
“With this NICO BrainPath technology, we may approach tumors that were considered hard to remove or whose resection would pose a high intraoperative risk,’’ said Neurosurgeon Marco Marsella who is the only Arizona physician trained to use the NICO BrainPath device.
“It was a miracle surgery,” Edward says. “I still can’t believe that a tumor the size of a golf ball was in my head! And that I was well enough to go home just two days after having my brain tumor removed.”
