The National Brain Tumor Center
Brain cancer is a relatively rare form of cancer and also one of the most complex to manage. A critical part of brain tumor management is selecting a team to provide a definitive diagnosis and develop a personalized treatment plan. Selecting a neurosurgical oncologist and neuro-oncologist with experience diagnosing and treating central nervous system tumors is critical to ensure that all the most up to date information and latest techniques are part of your options.
At the National Brain Tumor Center we offer diagnosis and treatment for primary tumors (benign and malignant) and metastatic tumors, with treatment plans tailored to the individual patient.
Located near Princeton, NJ, in Pennington, the National Brain Tumor Center offers sophisticated care in Capital Health’s state of the art hospital which was developed with patient convenience in mind. Located out of the city, but right along centrally located I-95, patients no longer have to deal with the inconvenience of traveling to large cities for the experience and expertise they need.

Our team includes specialists with expertise in both surgical as well as non-surgical treatment options. These can include traditional and minimally invasive surgical techniques, non-invasive radiosurgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.
Our team is also active in research with a focus on providing patients with access to both national trials and trials unique to Capital Health. Our research focus includes trials involving immunotherapy and the direct intra-arterial infusion of chemotherapy into tumors.
For convenience, our outpatient clinic is multidisciplinary with all the key specialists together in one place.
