Brain surgeons move to Hoag

Editor's note: This clarifies the Brain and Spine Surgeons' relationship with Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian.

After about a decade of being on staff at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, Dr. Christopher Duma and Dr. Richard Kim have moved their offices to Hoag Neurosciences Institute’s Multispecialty Center in Newport Beach.

The private practice founded by Duma in 1997, the Brain and Spine Surgeons of Orange County, will open its offices on West Coast Highway in early September, according to a news release.

Duma is a board-certified neurosurgeon who for the last 10 years has helped lead Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian's brain tumor and gamma knife radiosurgery programs.

"I am honored to be a part of the new neuroscience center and am looking forward to our new location, at the heart of where some of the most advanced studies and treatments in neuroscience are being performed," Duma said.

Hoag's Neurosciences Institute cares for patients with complex neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's, epilepsy, stroke, brain tumors and Parkinson's disease.
