Neuro-Oncology

The Department of Neurosurgery partners with the Neuro-Oncology Program to develop new treatments for patients with tumors of the brain and central nervous system. The UNC Neuro-Oncology Team utilizes state-of-the-art equipment to perform comprehensive evaluations in order to formulate the best possible treatment for each individual patient.

The UNC Neuro-Oncology program has dedicated teams working to treat patients with:

  1. Primary brain tumors (glioblastoma [GBM], ependymoma, glioma, astrocytoma, oligodendroglia, oligoastrocytoma)
  2. Metastatic brain tumors (spread to the brain of tumors such as lung cancer, breast cancer, melanoma, renal cancer, colon tumors, other types of cancer)
  3. Skull-based tumors (meningioma, schwannoma, esthesioneuroblastoma, sinus tumors, glomus tumors, others)
  4. Pediatric brain tumors (in children and young adults)

Your team may consist of neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neuropathologists, radiation oncologists as well as nurses, nurse practitioners, and psychiatrists/social workers, who all bring their expertise to provide you with excellent personalized care and treatment.
