Brain Tumor Conditions Treated

The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. There are more than 120 different types of brain tumors affecting over 40,000 Americans each year. A brain tumor is a collection, or mass, of abnormal cells in your brain, cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign).

We treat several tumor types that include:

  • Metastatic Brain Tumor – A metastatic brain tumor refers to cancer that begins elsewhere in the body (primary cancer site) and spreads (metastasizes) to the brain. Brain metastasis can be a single tumor or multiple tumors.
  • Gliomas – “Glioma” is a term used to describe any tumor that arises from the supportive tissue of the brain, including glioblastoma (GBM), which are malignant tumors.
  • Meningiomas – Meningiomas are often benign tumors arising from the coverings of the brain and spinal cord.
  • Pituitary Tumors – Tumors arising from the pituitary gland.
  • Pineal Tumor – These tumors originate from normal cells in the pineal gland.
  • Acoustic Neuroma – A benign, slow-growing tumor of the hearing nerve.
  • Colloid Cysts – These cysts are not actually “brain tumors” but are sometimes found in parts of the brain that control vital functions.
  • Skull Base Tumor – These form on base of the skull or below the skull base in areas like the sinuses and include chordoma, a rare type of cancerous tumor.
  • Epidermoid and Dermoid Tumors – When found on the brain, the symptoms can include pain and vision problems.
  • Spinal Cord Tumors – These develop within the spinal canal or the bones of your spine.
  • Central Nervous System Lymphoma – Cancer that arises from the cells of the lymphatic system.
