About Dr. Juthani

Driven by providing integrated, seamless care to patients.

Being diagnosed with a brain tumor or neuralgia can feel life-altering, and incredibly daunting. I focus on making the diagnosis and treatment process as smooth and transparent as possible, to help to alleviate this burden and make patients feel at ease. I focus on providing minimally invasive, comprehensive, state-of-the art treatments to all our patients, so patients know they are getting the best in care from start to finish. I create an individualized treatment plan for each patient, taking into account the specific genetics, patient goals and needs, and medical treatment options to guide all decisions. As a brain tumor specialist who specializes in minimally invasive surgery and Gamma Knife Radiosurgery, my goal is to make sure that patients are getting the least invasive, most effective treatment for their condition.
