Brain Tumor Program
Emory’s Brain Tumor Program is comprised of a comprehensive group of multidisciplinary experts specializing in neuro-oncology. Collaborating with with oncologists at the Emory Winship Cancer Institute, our neurosurgeons perform procedures for nervous system and brain tumors, as well as the neurological complications of cancer. Emory offers the only brain tumor program in Georgia with neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, neuropathologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, neuroradiologists and radiation oncologists dedicated to brain tumor diagnosis and treatment. We are also the only program in the state with full membership in the two national research groups with the largest adult brain research efforts.
The Emory Winship Cancer Institute is the first medical facility in Georgia to have earned the coveted National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cancer Center designation. As an NCI-designated center, Winship joins an elite group of 64 cancer centers nationwide that are on the forefront of the battle against cancer.
