Finding a Lost Soul
|Dr. William White has been practicing Neurosurgery at the Barrow Neurological Institute since 1976, and is the Medical Director of the Barrow Pituitary Center. Dr. White brought the sub-specialty of the transsphenoidal surgical technique to the BNI. Only 3% of neurosurgeons nationwide have completed more than 1,000 pituitary surgery cases. As of April, 2009, Dr. White has completed 1,450 pituitary surgeries.
Additionally, Dr. White offers his thirty-year surgical expertise in spine procedures and brain lesions. With calming seriousness and sincerity, he states, "Every day, I am taking on the challenge of someone else's illness and accepting the responsibility of trying to improve the quality of their life."
Dr. White takes pleasure in assisting with the management of his third-generation family farm in Kansas. He has an enthusiastic dog that enjoys bird hunting, training, and hiking with him and his wife.
