Mount Sinai is a leader in treating meningiomas, non-cancerous brain tumors that affect nearly 6,500 patients in the United States every year. Though meningiomas account for about a third of all brain tumors, they are not always discovered right away because they grow very slowly. Usually we find them when you are undergoing a diagnostic procedure for some other purpose such as headaches, vertigo, sinusitis, head trauma, seizures, psychiatric issues, vision problems, focal weakness or nerve disturbances.
We have pioneered endoscopic or minimally invasive surgical treatments. These procedures can reduce postoperative pain, speed recovery, shorten hospital stays, and help you get home and return to daily life more easily and quickly. With extensive experience in diagnosing and evaluating meningiomas, our neurosurgeons can recommend the best comprehensive treatment plan for you.
