Mattress Firm will be adjacent to CVS. The first retail tenants at Waverly are expected to open this fall, with Whole Foods opening in early 2017. Details: A MA Publishes Asher's Tumor Study In its July 26 issue, the Journal of the American Medical Association published an international brain tumor research study co-authored by Charlotte neurosurgeon Anthony Asher. Asher is with Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates, which has a Ballantyne office. The article reported results of a clinical research trial originating in Charlotte a decade ago comparing the effects of treating patients with a combination of whole brain radiation and focused radiation, versus focused radiation alone. "First and most directly, this study provides definitive evidence that patients with one to three brain metastases should no longer receive routine whole brain radiation therapy, and should be treated with focused therapy alone to better preserve cognitive function and quality of life," Asher says. Asher recently presented his findings at the 2016 American Association of Neurological Surgeons Annual Scientific Meeting, where he received the Leksell Radiosurgery Award for his research.
