Brain Tumor Treatment Options:
Surgery and Non-Surgical

Brain Tumors are almost always discovered by imaging scans with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Computed (Axial) Tomography (CT or CAT). Once a suspected tumor is seen on the scan, there are multiple options of how to proceed. The benefits and risks of each option should be evaluated carefully to try to determine the best treatment for each patient and each tumor.

This list and discussion are provided as a general overview on choices that should be considered when deciding on how to treat a Brain Tumor. The decision of how to proceed needs to be made by the patient, physicians caring for them, and family in most cases.

We have successfully treated many types of Brain Tumors with Stereotactic Radiosurgery.
