The Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research (FCBTR) is a state funded organization, based in Gainesville, FL, for the study of brain tumors. The primary role is to establish a tissue bank for brain tumor research. Dr. Lawson is this only neurosurgeon in the region to participate in this organization and tissue bank.
Dr. Lawson presented a lecture on treatment of Acute Stroke and the MR CLEAN trial results at the TMH Cardiovascular Symposium. The second annual conference of its kind included over 100 medical attendees.

In September of 2012 Tallahassee Memorial Hospital opened a state-of-the-art facility for performing complex neuro-endovascular procedures. One year later, 167 cases have been performed, dramatically improving the quality and availability of cerebrovascular care in the region.
Since the opening of this facility, we have successfully treated the following conditions:
Ruptured Brain Aneurysms
Unruptured Brain Aneurysms
Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension
Dr. Lawson and the newly opened cerebrovascular lab are detailed in the 2013 TMH Annual Report.
Dr. Lawson’s most recent article was published in the Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery in the July 2013 issue. The article, titled “Concomitant intracranial pressure monitoring during venous sinus stenting for intracranial hypertension secondary to venous sinus stenosis” describes a rare case of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (also known as psueodtumor cerebri) and treatment with a venous sinus stent. Dr. Lawson was the senior author on this paper.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports on the new, state-of-the-art neurovascular suite that has opened at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. This new facility represents a dramatic advance in the level of care that can be provided regionally, including cutting edge treatment for brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and acute stroke intervention. It is the first facility of its kind in the region built for the purpose of treating vascular disorders of the brain and spinal cord. Please visit the Tallahassee Democrat to read more.
TMH is pleased to announce the addition of complex cerebrovascular services to their many great service areas. Additional facilities have been constructed to support the new service line, including a new neurovascular suite for endovascular procedures as well as a new neurological intermediate care unit.
