NBC4 Los Angeles reports on Barron’s successful surgery
NBC4 Los Angeles reported on Richard Barron’s recent successful surgery. Barron, head coach of the University of Maine women’s basketball team, began an extended medical leave in January when he was diagnosed with two parallel neurological conditions. Barron recently underwent a “revolutionary” craniotomy at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Unlike similar surgeries, Barron’s doctors used a pioneering new technique, which will leave less scarring, according to the report. His doctors expect a full recovery that could put Barron back on the court in a few months, NBC4 Los Angeles reported. The Bangor Daily News and WCSH (Channel 6 in Portland) also reported on the surgery.
