Dr. Hamad I Farhat, Neurosurgeon

 

Dr. Hamid I Farhat

Dr. Farhat joined Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute (LBJI) in May 2016.

Dr. Farhat loves the practice of Neurosurgery and the fact that he can use his unique skills to help people. When a patient has an injury or condition involving the brain, they look to someone who has the experience and skill to take them from a critical situation to recovery; from fear to relief. It’s important to be able to trust the person who will diagnose and correct a condition of the brain. Dr. Farhat enjoys the confidence that people have in him to perform the needed treatment, he enjoys when he can communicate with his patients and their families in a way that they can understand what is occurring, and ultimately he enjoys watching their tension subside. This is why he went into medicine and into this most distinctive specialty.

Dr. Farhat currently has privileges at Porter Regional Hospital and LaPorte Hospital; he currently practices at the Chesterton LBJI Office.

Please call 219-250-5028 to schedule an appointment
