Need a Second Opinion?

We understand how confusing and frightening it can be to get a diagnosis that requires brain surgery.  Getting a second opinion is always a good idea — there are many advanced imaging techniques and minimally invasive procedures available today, and any patient would be wise to get a second opinion from another neurosurgeon.

The Clinical Neuro-Oncology Program at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center offers world-class research and medical treatment for cancers affecting the brain and spine. Our experts treat all types of malignant adult and pediatric brain tumors, including primary and metastatic tumors. The program sees hundreds of patients each year with either newly diagnosed and recurrent tumors.

Conditions We Treat

Brain Tumor Clinical Trial for Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) and Gliosarcoma

The Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center is proud to introduce an innovative new clinical trial for recurrent brain tumors. Using a combination of the latest in viral therapy and immunotherapy, this trial (called CAPTIVE) uses an adenovirus and an immune checkpoint inhibitor to tackle GBM or gliosarcoma tumors that recur after initial treatment.

Minimally Invasive/Endoscopic Neurosurgery

The neurosurgical team at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center

Minimally invasive neurosurgery utilizes small, flexible, lighted tubes called endoscopes to visualize various parts of the brain, skull base, or spinal cord through small openings. Endoscopes serve as small microscopes, magnifying critical anatomical structures so the surgeon can easily see the various diseased areas requiring repair, removal, or replacement. Because the use of endoscopes is much less intrusive into these anatomical structures than is conventional surgery, endoscopic neurosurgery is referred to as minimally invasive neurosurgery.

Conditions We Treat

Convection-Enhanced Delivery of 124I-8H9 for Patients With Non-Progressive Diffuse Pontine Gliomas Previously Treated With External Beam Radiation Therapy

This study tests an innovative convection-enhanced delivery (CED) technique that places a radioactive therapeutic agent (124I-8H9) at the site of the tumor using a surgically placed cannula.

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.

Brain Metastases

The Brain Metastases Clinic at the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center offers a multi-disciplinary approach to the treatment of metastatic brain tumors and leptomeningeal disease. While surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are important aspects of brain metastases treatment, we have found that our patients benefit from access to holistic services that help treat the neurologic consequences of their disease. To that end, we have assembled a broad team to offer integrated care for our patients.
