The general term “brain tumors” has been used to refer to tumor inside the head (“intracranial tumors” may be more appropriate). These can include skull tumors (osteoid osteoma, epidermoid tumor, etc.), dural or meningeal tumors (meningioma, hemangiopericytoma, metastatic brain tumors, etc.), or from the brain itself (glioblastoma multiforme, other glioma, dermoid, epidermoid, oligodendroglioma, craniopharyngioma, cavernoma or cavernous malformation, pituitary tumors, etc.). We specialize in brain tumor treatment, and have treated tumors in all ages, ranging from babies to elderly adults. Tumors in difficult locations, including skull base tumors, intraventricular tumors deep within the brain, and others have been treated successfully without causing a neurological deficit (such as weakness, paralysis, numbness, or speech difficulty) in many cases. Offering unique treatment techniques to the area when needed, including awake brain mapping with neuronavigation (also known as frameless stereotaxy, or brain navigation), precision with reduced risk and shortened recovery have been noted with good results.
