At the Brain Tumor Center at Levine Cancer Institute, we are dedicated to the care of patients with primary brain tumors, metastatic brain tumors, and other neurological complications of cancer.
The physicians of the Brain Tumor Center work closely together to provide exceptional care for patients with brain tumors. We offer a wide spectrum of advanced techniques for diagnosis and treatment of brain cancer.
Our comprehensive program combines all of the components critical to managing patients with brain tumors: comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis, leading edge treatment options, thorough follow-up and psychosocial support. Patients are welcome whether they are newly diagnosed or have already received extensive treatment.
The members of our Brain Cancer Center work together to provide the most advanced treatment for our patients. These members include:
In addition to state-of-the-art treatment options, our physicians also conduct clinical trials. Our participation in research trials allows for a better understanding of the mechanisms that lead to brain cancer and helps us translate this knowledge into new treatment strategies.
Neuro-oncology surgeons, radiation oncologists, neuroradiologists, medical oncologists, neurologists, neuropathologists and others meet weekly at a tumor board conference to arrive at the most appropriate treatment plan for each individual.
Because of the center's research and teaching mission, its practitioners are well-acquainted with the most advanced treatment methods. We use this approach to individualize each patient’s treatment plan.
Patients benefit from this knowledge and from specialized resources, such as a dedicated neurological intensive care unit. Physicians from our Brain Tumor Center maintain close working relationships with practitioners throughout the community, offering a seamless transition of care.
At the Institute, we understand that cancer affects more than just our patients. We make communication with patients and caregivers a top priority. We believe that treating the whole person, not just the disease, is best for patients and family members.
We offer a broad range of emotional support programs designed to help patients and family members cope with the range of issues related to life during and after cancer treatment.
