8. The Business of Brain Tumors: A Handbook for Building a Patient-Centric Practice with Optimal Outcomes
Author: by Daniel G. Eichberg
June 7, 2021
How Do You Build a High Volume Medical Practice? In 2010, the University of Miami Hospital (UMH) was a newly acquired academic hospital that had seldom performed brain tumor surgeries. Yet by 2018, UMH had become the flagship hospital for one of the busiest brain tumor programs in the country.
How did such rapid growth in surgical volume occur in such a short time and in such an intensely competitive market? Using the UMH experience as a case study in rapid practice growth, we aim to highlight the techniques we used to expand our practice so that other neurosurgeons and other surgical providers can follow suit.
These pearls for excelling at the business of medicine are typically neglected during medical school, residency, and fellowship, but they are critical for career success. It has almost become taboo for physicians and surgeons to openly acknowledge the business side of the equation.
This glaring lack is what inspired us to write this book. Despite our emphasis on the so-called “business side” of medicine, the strategies in this book are genuinely geared towards improving patient care. The ultimate goal is producing a high volume physician-such a surgeon develops a vast clinical experience that generally leads to more favorable outcomes.

13. A Surgeon in the Village: An American Doctor Teaches Brain Surgery in Africa
Author: by Tony Bartelme
March 28, 2017
A lyrical, inspirational story of doctors who changed the health care of an African nation (Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation)Dr. Dilan Ellegala arrives in Tanzania, shocked to find the entire country has just three brain surgeons for its population of forty-two million.
Haydom Lutheran Hospital lacks even the most basic surgical tools, not even a saw to open a patient’s skull. Here, people with head injuries or brain tumors heal on their own or die. When confronted with a villager suffering from a severe head trauma, Dilan buys a tree saw from a farmer, sterilizes it, and then uses it to save the man’s life.
Yet Dilan realizes that there are far too many neurosurgery patients for one person to save, and of course he will soon be leaving Tanzania. He needs to teach someone his skills. He identifies a potential student in Emmanuel Mayegga, a stubborn assistant medical officer who grew up in a mud hut.
Though Mayegga has no medical degree, Dilan sees that Mayegga has the dexterity, intelligence, and determination to do brain surgery. Over six months, he teaches Mayegga how to remove tumors and treat hydrocephalus. And then, perhaps more important, Dilan teaches Mayegga how to pass on his newfound skills.
