I too am a post toasty from upmc Pittsburgh, Hirsch and Gardner both were responsible for my care. I was gama knifed in 2013 at shady side hospital. I Drove 2 hours to the appointment and walked out an hour later. Can't say enough good about their expertise and patient centered care. I am 4 years post op, doing well, remodeling my bathroom, resumed my life adjusted for the single sided deafness, adjusted to my balance issues and only occasionally notice side effects.
Yes UPMC and Dr Hirsch's team are world class, they will keep track of you and keep you in care as long as needed.
