Brain TumorsOur team of neurosurgeons, in connection with the Huntsman Cancer Institute, are at the forefront of research and clinical care for tumors of the brain. We employ the latest techniques in diagnosing and treating brain tumors of all varieties.

Through the use of cutting edge medical imaging technologies, we ensure our patients receive an accurate and timely diagnosis. Our surgical approaches include the use of stereotactic radiosurgery, a non-invasive procedure used to shrink and inhibit tumor growth using focused beams of radiation.
