A brain tumor diagnosis is a difficult experience for patients and their families, often causing fear and changes in life perspectives. Those affected can turn to the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center, part of Atlantic Health System Neuroscience, where we provide state-of-the-art care, ease minds, educate and comfort families, and renew hope.
Expert Treatment for Benign and Malignant Brain Tumors
Benign brain tumors grow slowly, tend to not spread to other areas of the body and have defined borders. Malignant tumors, in contrast, grow quickly and are more invasive. Both may be considered life threatening, depending upon their location and if they interefere with vital bodily functions.
Our brain tumor center, which is part of Atlantic Neuroscience Institute and Carol G. Simon Cancer Center, is well-equipped to care for benign and malignant brain tumors, as well as those affecting the skull base, spine and spinal cord. We have a team of experts specializing in neurosurgery, skull base surgery, otolaryngology, radiation oncology, neuro-oncology, medical oncology, neuro-radiology, neurology, neuro-pathology, physical medicine, social work, nutritional therapy, supportive care and pain management.
