The Neuro-Oncology Program at Mount Sinai offers a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach to the treatment of patients with brain tumors, metastases to the nervous system, spinal cord tumors, and the neurological complications of cancer and its treatment. We provide coordinated, individualized care to help you fully understand your condition and long-term therapy options.
Our team works closely with other subspecialties, such as neurosurgery, medical oncology, radiology, neuropathology, rehabilitation medicine, and palliative care, to provide comprehensive treatment. We also collaborate with researchers to develop new therapies for testing in clinical trials.
Neuro-Oncology Diagnosis and Treatment
We offer the latest in diagnostic tests and therapies for people with both common and rare brain tumors, metastases to the brain or spinal cord, and neurological complications resulting from cancer and its treatment. Our diagnostic services include advanced imaging technologies and pathology analysis of tumor samples.
Our neuro-oncologists design and oversee the appropriate chemotherapy, target therapy, angiogenesis inhibitors, and immunotherapy. Our team also coordinates personalized patient care that may include the expertise of neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neuropathologists, radiation oncologists, oncologists, oncology nurse practitioners, and social workers. Because we understand the stress and anxiety these conditions can cause among our patients, our team does everything possible to provide hope and comfort to the families in our care.
