Northside Hospital Cancer Institute is a skilled provider of treatment and support for patients diagnosed with a brain tumor or tumors of the central nervous system (CNS).
The strength of our Brain & CNS Tumor Program is our multidisciplinary team of highly skilled, sub-specialized neurosurgeons, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists who work together every step of the way to provide individualized care for each patient diagnosed with a brain or CNS tumor. Northside's Brain & CNS Tumor Program offers a comprehensive scope of medical services, the latest technology, leading-edge clinical research and compassionate support.
Equipped with innovative technology, including integrated operating room (OR) suites with image-guided systems, the team is able to perform a variety of minimally invasive procedures and remain on the leading edge of patient care.
Nearly two-thirds of all cancer patients receive radiation therapy at some point during their treatment. Northside Hospital has the most state-of-the-art, powerful and versatile radiation therapy technology available. In addition to delivering conventional forms of radiation therapy, the system can be used stereotactically to treat very small tumors in the brain, quickly and with unprecedented precision. Neurosurgeons, specifically credentialed in stereotactic radiosurgery procedures, work alongside board-certified radiation oncologists to use this innovative technology.
