The Roper St. Francis Brain & Spine Tumor Clinic brings together experts to offer coordinated care for patients with primary and secondary brain and spine tumors. Our specialists bring cross-disciplinary experience to the table, consulting together to customize treatment plans for each patient’s individual needs, in coordination with the patient’s referring doctor.
The Brain & Spine Tumor Clinic has access to all of the advanced tools in the Roper St. Francis arsenal, as well as extensive clinical trial opportunities through our partnership with the Levine Cancer Institute. Our team approach helps improve outcomes and enhance quality of life for our patients.
Our team includes board certified specialists who have expertise in the specific needs of patients with tumors of the brain and spinal column. These doctors collaborate to ensure our patients are receiving the most advanced evidence-based treatment protocols for their particular disease. The clinic brings together doctors from the following medical disciplines:
Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
Radiation Oncology, including CyberKnife
