Neuro-Oncology

The Neuro-oncology team at the UACC is a dedicated multidisciplinary team of physicians composed of neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, neuro-oncologists, neuro-radiologists and a neuropathologist, all specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of both metastatic and primary brain. The team meets every week at the Neuro-Oncology Tumor Board and discusses all the cases to achieve consensus on the best way to treat each patient.

The Neuro-oncology team treats all brain tumors including malignant tumors (such as Glioblastoma, Astrocytomas, Ependymomas, Medulloblastomas, etc.) and benign tumors (such as Meningiomas, Vestibular Schwannomas, Pituitary Adenomas, etc.)

Treatments offered: in addition to the standard treatment of brain surgery, chemotherapy and both stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and Intensity Modulated Radiation therapy (IMRT), we also offer state-of-the-art protocols for difficult to cure tumors such as Brain Metastases, Glioblastoma or high grade Meningiomas. Participation in these national protocols allows the patient to receive novel treatments when the tumor recurs or is difficult to control.
