The Center for Neuro-Oncology offers state-of the-art treatment for patients with
spinal cord tumors, and neurologic complications from cancer. Our specialists work to ensure you receive coordinated treatment
and support. We focus on helping you cope with your illness and maintain the quality of your life.
The Center for Neuro-Oncology offers the latest advances in care for adult patients with tumors of the brain or spinal cord, as well as for neurologic complications of cancer and its treatments. Treatment for brain cancer is complex, and treatment planning
requires involvement from many subspecialists including neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists. Through our multidisciplinary clinic, patients have the benefit of meeting with our team of surgical, medical, and radiation oncologists
at one time and in one place to develop individualized treatment plans.
We focus on treating both common and rare brain tumors, including glioma, glioblastoma, oligodendroglioma, astrocytoma, meningioma, lymphoma,
brain metastases, and medulloblastoma.

Treatment and Research
Our clinicians are experts in treatment options that include precise neurosurgical techniques, radiation therapy that targets tumors while sparing surrounding tissues, and a variety of chemotherapy and molecular drugs targeting your type of cancer.
You may also benefit from our research program. As we search for new, more effective treatments, we are able to offer our patients access to a range of
clinical trials for various types and stages of brain and spinal cord cancers.
Our research is dedicated to advancing brain tumor diagnosis and treatment. Learn more about our research and treatment in the key areas of
cancer genetics/genotyping, and
targeted therapies/precision cancer medicine.
Our approach to compassionate care centers on the individual needs of our patients and their families. Our team members work closely together to ensure that you receive carefully coordinated treatment and support. We focus on helping you cope with your
illness and maintain the quality of your life.
You and your family are key members of the care team. While we understand your illness, you understand your own body. We welcome your questions and value your participation as we make decisions together.
