How we treat brain cancer
Your case is unique, which means your treatment plan will be designed around your needs. Every week, a team of specialists meets to discuss cancer cases and collaborate on the best treatment for each patient. This group includes neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuropathology, radiation oncology and neuro-oncology. You also benefit from the combined expertise of specialists in radiology, surgery, pathology, pharmacology, oncology and therapists in fields like physical therapy and psychology.
We believe in providing our patients the best and broadest range of treatments available. Your recommended treatment will be based on best practices that have worked for other patients, specific aspects of your cancer/tumor, the results of all your tests, the stage of your cancer and your personal preferences.
Brain cancer is typically treated through a combination of treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and other specialized therapies. Many new treatments are leading to longer survival and a better quality of life.
