What treatments are available for a metastatic brain tumor?

Metastatic brain tumors may be treated with surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy, depending on factors including the location and size of the tumor(s), the age and overall health of the patient, and the prospects for a high quality of life after treatment. See more about Diagnosing and Treating a Metastatic Brain Tumor.

Orbital Tumors Program

Dr. Henry Spinelli and Dr. Philip E. Stieg

Tumors involving the eye are among the most frightening diagnoses any patient may hear — they affect appearance, put vision at risk, and may even be life-threatening. Diagnosing and treating these tumors requires an expert, multidisciplinary team from a range of specialties, working together to provide the best outcomes for each individual.

Conditions We Treat

Postdoctoral Position in Biotechnology and CNS Drug Delivery at Weill Cornell Medicine

A postdoctoral researcher position is available immediately in the Children’s Brain Tumor Project (CBTP) laboratory in the Department of Neurological Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine to study preclinical therapeutic delivery strategies. Using various drug delivery approaches including convection-enhanced delivery (CED), intra-arterial delivery, and focused ultrasound, candidate therapeutic agents are assayed using animal models.

Junior Resident Boot Camp 2015

For the third year in a row, Weill Cornell was chosen as the east coast venue for the Society of Neurological Surgeons (SNS) Junior Resident "boot camp" - an intensive hands-on training course that matches experienced neurosurgeons with young residents in dissection labs and simulation labs. The course takes place in the Weill Cornell Medical College Gross Anatomy Lab, in the Surgical Innovations Lab for Skull Base Microneurosurgery, and in the Skills Acquisition and Innovation Laboratory (SAIL).
