Hypothalamic Hamartoma Program

About Our Program

Hypothalamic hamartoma is a type of rare, benign (noncancerous) tumor that occurs at a rate of one in every 200,000 people. Because they are so rare, hypothalamic hamartomas can be extremely difficult to diagnose, let alone treat.

Since 2003, we have made it our mission to provide a new avenue of hope for those suffering from the seizures and behavioral problems that are the hallmark of this disease. We are one of just a few hospitals in the world that perform highly technical transcallosal surgery to remove hypothalamic hamartomas.

For more information on the Barrow Hypothalamic Hamartoma Program or to make an appointment, please call (602) 406-7585.
