Brain Tumor Program Philosophy
We believe in a multidisciplinary approach, which optimizes tumor cure rates using the latest technology and which takes into account the individual needs of patients and their families. Our surgeons carefully plan each operation and whenever possible, we use minimally invasive techniques to access brain tumors through natural portals or small, targeted approaches. Neurosurgeons, oncologists, licensed nurses, and rehabilitation experts work together with patients and their families to develop individualized treatment plans which aim to maximize not only the quantity but also the quality of life.
Neuro-oncology Tumor Board & Working Group
The Neuro-oncology Tumor Board and Working Group is a multidisciplinary team of experts skilled in the care of brain tumor patients. Cases are reviewed with our panel of academic experts to ensure that we develop the most effective and appropriate treatment plan to treat your tumor. The brain tumor board meets bi-monthly and includes the expertise of neurosurgeons, pediatric neurosurgery, neuro-oncology, pediatric neuro-oncology, radiation oncology and pathology.
