Using the latest technologies and clinical advancements, Carolinas HealthCare System Neurosciences Institute’s brain tumor program offers care for both benign and malignant brain tumors, as well as cancer that has spread to the brain from other parts of the body. Our goal is to ensure the safest, least invasive, and most complete removal of your brain tumor.

Brain Tumor Treatment

Our collaborative care team – including specialists in brain cancer, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuropsychology, physical and rehabilitative medicine, and radiation therapy – offers complete care, including:

  • Stereotactic radiosurgery, the most advanced treatment approach currently available, which provides effective treatment of lesions and abnormal tissue previously considered inoperable through the precise delivery of radiation beams
  • Intraoperative electrocorticography (brain mapping)
  • Microneurosurgery
  • Endoscopic neurosurgery
  • Protocols for chemotherapy and immunotoxin therapy

We’re committed to supporting you and your family as you undergo treatment. Our nurse clinicians, social workers, psychologists and clergy offer one-on-one guidance and counseling, and our brain tumor support group helps patients and family members throughout the journey.
