Our Team

Patients at Capital Health's Center for Neuro-Oncology are treated by a neurosurgical and neuro-oncology team of physicians with more experience than any other team in the region. Our nurse navigator also provides support and can answer questions, help patients navigate the services they need, and facilitate communication between patients and their physicians.

Together, director of Neuro-Oncology, Dr. Roy Patchell and director of Neurosurgical Oncology, Dr. Navid Redjal have led neuro-oncology and neurosurgical oncology programs at some of the country’s premiere academic neurosurgery and neurology institutions when it comes to brain and spinal tumors.

A world renowned neuro-oncologist, Dr. Patchell’s clinical, research, and leadership credentials are unsurpassed. His published research defined the standard of care for patients with brain tumors, as well as spinal compression caused by cancer. Dr. Redjal is a Harvard trained neurosurgeon with extensive research and clinical background in neuro-oncology. He has been involved in significant translational brain cancer research and neuro-oncology clinical trials with research fellowships at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School.
