Cure HHT recognizes centers equipped with the personnel, expertise, commitment, and resources to provide comprehensive evaluation, treatment, and education to individuals with HHT and their families.
After 18 months of training, mentor center communications and a site visit from Cure HHT’s Center of Excellence (COE) Committee, Barrow Neurological Institute is named the 30th HHT CoE in North America. It is the only facility in Arizona to earn this distinction.
The Barrow HHT Program, in collaboration with Arizona Pulmonary Specialists, at Barrow Neurological Institute works in partnership with Dignity Health to provide patients with an integrated team of specialists who work together within one health care system.
Specialties offered through the Barrow HHT Program include neurosurgery, neuroradiology, vascular and interventional radiology, neuro intensive care, genetics, gastrointestinal / hepatology, pulmonology, cardiodiagnostics, and cardiac catheterization.
- Genetics / Family History: The Center will help trace HHT through generations to identify other “at risk” family members
- Guidance / Experienced Medical Resource: Once patients have been to an HHT Center of Excellence, local physicians may contact physician(s) at the center for treatment recommendations, second opinions, or clarification of management options
