The Neurosurgical Service sees many international patients with unusual
and complicated neurosurgical problems. A one page summary of the history in English
allows us to form an opinion on the advisability of travel to the U.S. As with
any patient, the MRI and CT scans are needed for evaluation. These can
be reviewed before the patient comes to the United States. An in-person
evaluation and any surgical procedures are done at the patient's convenience.
The Massachusetts General Hospital Admitting Department has established
a reputable International Program. Representatives from the International Patient
and Family Center are available to assist international patients and their families
with transportation, lodging, interpretation, and other needs. For information
