A patient who visits the UC Brain Tumor Center becomes the focus of a multidisciplinary team of specialists armed with multiple tumor-fighting therapies. Our center serves patients with every type of brain tumor and employs highly trained physicians and nurses in multiple specialties, including Neurosurgery, Radiation Oncology, Otolaryngology (ENT) and Hematology-Oncology. In instances of uncertainty, individual cases are presented at our weekly Tumor Board, to a large group of specialists, so multiple viewpoints can be heard and discussed. Our target never wavers; we seek the very best treatment for every patient.
The UC Brain Tumor Center offers hope, compassion, expertise and the world’s most advanced technologies to patients from across the region and around the world. Our multidisciplinary team of experts uses sophisticated technology and procedures to treat complex tumors of the brain, head, neck and central nervous system. We are at the forefront of advances to prolong and improve the quality of life for patients with these complex tumors.
The center is a part of both the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute and UC Cancer Institute, which are collaborations between UC Health and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. These partnerships unite research, education and clinical care for the best possible patient outcomes.
