Tumors - Brain and Spine

Our team includes dedicated specialists who can pinpoint and treat brain and spine tumors using the most advanced methods and tools.

Tumors are commonly diagnosed with imaging tools such as CT scans or MRIs. Once a brain tumor is discovered, most patients are seen by a neurosurgeon or neurologist. Treatment may begin with surgery to biopsy or remove the tumor, followed by radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy to kill any remaining tumor cells.

Mercy Neuroscience Institute employs the most advanced therapeutic techniques, including:

  • Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery
  • Computerized image-guided surgery
  • Intraoperative MRI imaging
  • Intraoperative brain mapping
  • Skull base surgery
  • Implantable chemotherapy techniques
