Brain Cancer

Cancers affecting the brain and central nervous system may develop originally in the brain - called primary tumors - or may spread to the brain or central nervous system after developing elsewhere in the body - called secondary tumors.

We offer Gamma Knife Surgery which is considered the gold standard of treatment for brain cancers. This minimally-invasive surgery is able to treat the smallest of targets deep within the brain. No cutting is performed. Instead, precisely focused beams of radiation target the cancer - and not the healthy surrounding tissue. Only one session is required and patients normally go home shortly after their treatment. 

We treat small and medium-sized, malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous) tumors of the brain such as: 

  • Acoustic neuromas
  • Brain metastases
  • Craniopharyngiomas
  • Gliomas
  • Meningiomas
  • Pituitary and pineal tumors
  • Blood vessel abnormalities within the brain
  • Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
  • Functional and movement disorders
  • Trigeminal neuralgia (facial pain)
