Doctors Who Treat Brain Cancer

There are several variations of central nervous system tumors, which can make diagnosing them a challenge. It is vital that a person with brain cancer seek care at a world-renowned surgical hospital with a team that has experience with rare types of brain cancers.

A patient diagnosed with brain cancer should be treated by a multidisciplinary team that includes neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-oncologists, neuroradiologists, neuropathologists, radiation oncologists, physical therapists, social workers, and other specialists with advanced training and extensive experience in brain tumors. The Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center offers the services of some of the top surgeons in the field as well as access to a full range of specialists in all the disciplines an adult patient needs.
