Together with your nervous system, your brain controls all of your movement, sensation and behavior. The brain is also at the root of a variety of complex mental and neurological disorders that can cause physical and mental challenges. These challenges present opportunities, as well as responsibilities, to develop new techniques and approaches to care—that's where the multidisciplinary team at Emory Brain Health Center excels.

Neurosurgical Conditions

Emory Neurosurgery is one of the leading neurosurgery programs in the nation. Neurological conditions are often highly complex, so it takes a team of doctors trained in specific conditions to provide optimal treatment. Emory neurosurgeons specializes in a particular condition and/or treatment, and then collaborate with other physicians who specialize in different, complementary areas in the neurosciences when caring for patients.

Brain Tumors
  • Metastatic Brain Tumor – A metastatic brain tumor refers to cancer that begins elsewhere in the body (primary cancer site). It 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 originates from the brain's supportive tissue, including glioblastoma (GBM), which are malignant tumors.
  • Meningiomas – Meningiomas are often benign tumors originating from the coverings of the brain and spinal cord.
  • Pituitary Tumors – Tumors originating 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 the skull base 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 originates from the cells of the lymphatic system.
