Barrow’s Brain Tumor Center is among the busiest in the United States—treating some of the most difficult and unique cases in the world.
Patients who visit the Brain Tumor Center receive comprehensive services that not only include traditional treatments, but also nutritional support, pain management, rehabilitation services and genetic counseling. Our team of brain tumor experts focuses on your specific needs to determine the best treatment options for all forms of brain cancer, including:
- Acoustic neuromas (vestibular schwannomas)
- Germ cell tumors
- Giomas (includes glioblastomas, gliosarcomas, astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas, and oligoastrocytomas)
- Medulloblastomas (includes primitive neuroectodermal tumors, or PNETs)
- Pineal-region tumors (includes pineocytomas and pineoblastomas)
- Pituitary tumors (includes pituitary adenomas)
Advanced Treatment Options For Brain Tumors
In addition to our expert staff, our Brain Tumor Center offers the newest advances in surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and diagnostic imaging. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques include computer tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MR)I) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), digital subtraction angiography (D)SA and many others.
If surgery is determined to be the best course of treatment, Barrow neurosurgeons will use the technique most appropriate for the type and location of tumor. Treatment options may include neurosurgery, endovascular surgery or radiosurgery.
Barrow Brain Tumor Research Center
Because nearly a third of all malignant brain tumors have no cure, Barrow has established the Barrow Brain Tumor Research Center (BBTRC) to learn more about this deadly disease. Here, top scientists work alongside neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, and neuropathologists to conduct research that will one day become new diagnostic and treatment options. The BBTRC will also serve as a national center for brain tumor clinical trials. In the near future, we anticipate enabling every brain tumor patient at least one experimental therapeutic option in addition to standard therapy.
