HOUSE CALL with Dr. Chris Chiou
The Epidermoid Brain Tumor Society welcomes Dr. Chris Chiou to its membership. In March, 2013, Dr. Chiou was diagnosed with a 4.5 cm brain mass in the posterior fossa. The next week, the mass was removed in a 16 hours surgery. The mass was identified as an epidermoid brain tumor. Since surgery, Dr. Chiou went from fully functional to disabled overnight from post-surgical deficits. In May, 2014, he decided that his story needed to be told and began the blog, www.handicappeddoctor.com. Reprinting articles from his own blog, and writing new ones especially geared to the epidermoid patient, Dr. Chiou shares his particular insight with his own journey, both as a doctor and as a patient.
