Brain Tumors

These tumors occur when there is an abnormal growth of cells in the brain. They can compress sensitive tissue and nerves within the head, causing vision loss, hearing loss, balance issues, pain, seizures and other symptoms. As tumors grow larger, they can disrupt critical parts of the brain responsible for breathing and other basic life functions.

Early detection is key to addressing this type of cancer. Our team of highly experienced physicians includes neurosurgeons, radiologists, pathologists, medical and radiation oncologists and other specialists. A Magnet®-designated team of nurses, advanced practice nurses, social workers, dietitians and rehabilitation specialists round out patients’ care teams to provide the best possible care.
