BRAIN TUMOR SURGERY
Brain tumor treatment depends on a number of factors, including the type, location, size, and grade of the tumor, as well as the age and health of the patient. Your doctor can present your treatment options and tell you what to expect from each one.
Specialists who treat brain tumors include neurosurgeons, neurooncologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists. In addition to the specialist, your treatment team may include other professionals such as a nurse, dietitian, mental health counselor, social worker, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and/or speech therapist.
