Brain Tumor Center

Comprehensive Brain Tumor Treatment and Support

The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 22,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with primary brain tumors each year, while brain metastases affect over 170,000 people annually.

Learning you have a brain tumor can change your life and the lives of your loved ones. That’s why specialists with Norton Neuroscience Institute and Norton Cancer Institute have joined forces to develop the region’s only comprehensive Brain Tumor Center.

Brain Tumor Treatment Team

The Brain Tumor Center combines the clinical expertise of specialists who are highly trained at leading research institutions with tailored support services to provide patients with one convenient location for all their treatment needs — physical, emotional and spiritual. Our team includes a neurosurgeon, radiation oncologist, neuro-oncologist, behavioral oncologist and patient navigator who work collaboratively to diagnose, treat and provide support to patients and their families.

At the Brain Tumor Center, patients work alongside a neuro-oncologist, neurosurgeon and radiation oncologist to determine a care plan that best meets their individual needs. The care plan may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or an individualized combination of these. The choice of brain tumor treatment may depend on the following:

  • The type and grade of brain tumor
  • Tumor location in the brain
  • Tumor size
  • Patient’s age and general health
  • If there are tumors elsewhere in the body

Types of Tumors We Treat

  • Benign brain tumors
  • Benign spine and spinal cord tumors
  • Malignant brain tumors and brain cancer
  • Malignant spine and spinal cord tumors
  • Metastatic brain tumors
