The multispecialty team provides each patient with a personalized care plan to create the path for the most optimal outcome, including recommendations for advanced diagnostics, consideration of minimally invasive options and participation in promising clinical trials, as well as complete follow-up care.
NorthShore University HealthSystem's (NorthShore) Neuro-Oncology Program was one of the first established in the Chicago area. We care for adults who have been diagnosed with primary and metastatic brain tumors and spinal cord tumors.
The treatment of brain tumors varies by tumor type and size, as well as its location. Your team will work with you to determine which option is best for you. Brain tumor treatment may include:
How well a patient responds to brain cancer treatment is affected by age, location of the tumor, grade of the tumor and the amount of tumor that was removed during surgery.
NorthShore’s team of neuro-oncologists manages and oversees each patient’s care from diagnosis through treatment, coordinating with other specialists as needed. NorthShore’s neuro-oncologists have taken part in many pivotal studies that have helped to determine which drug therapies are most appropriate for individuals diagnosed with brain and spinal cord tumors.
Led by nationally recognized surgeons, including world-renowned, fellowship-trained, board-certified neurosurgeons, NorthShore offers a full range of surgical options and brain cancer treatments for patients diagnosed with brain cancer.
