Jan's Story


Diagnosed with a rare brain tumor, Jan was told by his local doctor in Norway he only had 4-6 months to live. In search of a second opinion, Jan turned to PGH. After a thorough diagnostic evaluation by Harvard affiliated specialists, a treatment plan was designed and discussed between the specialist in the US and Jan’s treating doctor in Norway through the Doctor-to-Doctor Dialogue. The chosen medical procedures were conducted in Norway. A Personal Care Manager from PGH assisted with all the necessary treatment coordination and supported Jan through his entire recovery. Without leaving his home, Jan received global best advice and treatment, and the benefits of cross-border teaming. Today, Jan is alive and well 10 years after his initial diagnosis.
