Our specialized multidisciplinary care team recognizes that the most important member of the team is you. That’s why the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center was built on the concept of teamwork. Our experts in neurosurgery, skull base surgery, radiation oncology, neuro-oncology, neuroradiology, neurology, neuropathology, nursing and more collaborate seamlessly to develop your personalized care plan. Our patient navigator, social worker and advocate handle every detail and provide support every step of the way.
It all starts with our patient navigator and social worker. They meet with you and your family early on, get to know you and the services you may need. These professionals – along with our patient and family advocate – oﬀer the counseling and support that are essential to your emotional and mental well-being. Support group meetings provide an extended community of people with similar experiences.
Our tumor board includes neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, neuro-oncologists, medical oncologists, neuropathologists, clinical trial nurses and a social worker. These professionals – and others as needed – take collaboration to the next level. They work together to design a personalized treatment plan that’s tailored to deliver your best outcome.
