Pediatric Brain and Spinal Tumors

Tumor refers to abnormal growth of tissue or cells and can occur in the brain and spinal cord.

We work closely with pediatricians, oncologists, and neurologists in the diagnosis and treatment of brain and spinal cord tumors in children.  Treatment for brain and spinal cord tumors include surgery for biopsy and/or resection, CyberKnife, embolization, or shunting.  In addition, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy may be necessary.
