Center for Neuro-Oncology
At the Neuro-Oncology Center, board certified and fellowship trained neurosurgeons
use image-guided surgery to treat tumors of the brain and spine. Our neuro-oncology team works with patients from diagnosis through treatment and follow-up care. At the Institute, our neurosurgeons treat both malignant and benign tumors of the brain and spine including acoustic schwannomas, meningiomas, pituitary tumors, pineal tumors, gliomas, and skull base tumors.
Patients may be treated through open surgery or, when appropriate, using the Cyberknife® Robotic Radiosurgery System, a non-invasive approach designed to combine pinpoint accuracy with patient comfort. CyberKnife requires no incision, and involves no pain and no recovery time. CyberKnife can be used by our neurosurgeons to treat brain and spinal tumors, arteriovenous malformations, and trigeminal neuralgia.
Capital Health is the only hospital in the area to offer this technology.
