Your Treatment Plan
Treatment for a brain or spine tumor depends on its type, size, location and growth rate, as well as your overall health. We perform a wide rage of brain and spine procedures using advanced, minimally invasive neurosurgical procedures that use state-of-the-art imaging technology including Brain Lab.
Brain Lab allows our neurosurgeons to use CT/MRI imaging to map a patient's brain during surgery. It can be thought of as a "GPS for the brain." Brain Lab continuously tracks surgical instrumentation in relation to actual patient anatomy and displays the relationship, in rela time, on a software screen during surgery. This technology allows surgeons to have the necessary precision required when operating on an affected area in the brain.
In addition to surgery, your treatment plan may include a combination of treatments, such as:
- Radiation Therapy
- Radiosurgery (Precision CyberKnife of New York)
Following treatment, neuro-rehabilitation such as physical, occupational or speech therapy may be necessary if the tumor affected regions of the brain or spine that control motor skills, speech, vision or thinking.
