The complex structure and function of the brain and spinal cord make diagnosis and treatment of tumors a highly specialized discipline. Our neuro-oncolgy group has years of clinical experience treating patients with a wide variety of tumors, using state-of-the-art techniques and advanced technology.
In addition, our extensive research efforts help us contribute to advances in the treatment of brain and spinal tumors, as well as bringing the opportunity to try promising new experimental therapies for our patients.
Diagnosis and Treatment
Along with taking a comprehensive medical history and performing a complete neurological exam, our physicians use MRI, CT and PET scans as appropriate to aid in diagnosis of brain or spinal tumors.
A wide variety of therapies are available at the clinic. In addition we have a solid referral program to support our patients when surgery is indicated.
Brain-Tumor Support Group
As a means of support for our patients and family, we host a monthly Brain Tumor Support Group at our Tower facility.
