Neuro-Oncology Center

The Neuro-Oncology Center focuses on a comprehensive approach to the treatment of brain tumors. Specialists in neurosurgery, neurology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, neuroradiology, nursing, speech and occupational and physical therapy work together to enhance patient care at every stage—from the initial evaluation, diagnosis and treatment, to post-treatment support groups and longitudinal follow-up.

Neuro-Oncology Center physicians use advanced radiological techniques to carefully assess and determine the options for treatment. Patients who choose surgery are operated upon by highly-experienced hands. The Center's neurosurgical patients also have access to intraoperative monitoring technology which can detect adverse changes in neurological status before serious problems arise, allowing surgeons to act quickly to avoid complications. In the neurosurgical critical care unit, patients receive postoperative monitoring to facilitate a trauma-free recovery. The Center's comprehensive, compassionate approach to healthcare extends through the follow-up period. The Brain Tumor Support Group, for example, gives patients and their families a comfortable environment in which to express their concerns and ask questions under the guidance of a neurological nurse practitioner with more than twenty years of experience.
