A patient who visits the UC Brain Tumor becomes the focus of a multidisciplinary team of specialists armed with multiple tumor-fighting therapies – from implantable chemotherapy wafers to shaped-beam radiation to promising vaccines.
Our treatment strategies, grounded in best practices and statistical evidence, are carefully planned. In instances of uncertainty, individual cases are presented to a large group of specialists so that multiple viewpoints can be heard and discussed. Our target never wavers; we seek the very best treatment for every patient.
Supporting our specialists are the world’s most advanced computer-driven technologies, designed to maximize recovery and minimize risk, and the newest federally approved therapies. Meanwhile, away from the hospital, skilled scientists labor on the frontiers of medicine, pursuing new modes of treatment that one day will be translated into cures.
