Our nationally known neurosurgeons and MD Anderson Cancer Network® certified cancer physicians are working together to treat patients with brain or spine cancer. At OhioHealth, we combine our breadth of experience — treating exceptionally high numbers of patients with neurological injuries and illnesses — with our depth of expertise in cancer care to treat patients with brain or spine tumors.
Our Multidisciplinary Tumor Board, made up of physicians representing neurology, neurosurgery, radiation oncology, neuropathology and neuroradiology, meets to discuss the case of every patient with a brain or spine tumor and collectively determine the best course of diagnosis and treatment.
Our team of physicians is specially trained in the best cancer programs in the country to recognize, differentiate and manage the many complexities inherent in treating primary and metastatic brain and spine tumors. This includes managing neurological complications that can arise from these conditions.
We’re a leader in the central Ohio region and recognized nationally for the diagnosis and surgical treatment of patients with benign or malignant brain and spine tumors. Our neuro-oncologists and neurosurgeons are known nationally and internationally.
When a tumor is malignant, our neuro-oncology team collaborates with OhioHealth radiation oncologists and medical oncologists to determine the best and most appropriate care for each patient.
OhioHealth is a certified member of MD Anderson Cancer Network® — a program of MD Anderson Cancer Center. This means you have access to nationally recognized cancer care protocols and best practices, while still receiving direct care from your local OhioHealth cancer physician.
OhioHealth was the first healthcare system in central Ohio to use the TomoTherapy® System and Trilogy Sterotactic System to treat cancerous brain tumors.
Also, at OhioHealth Neuroscience Center, we have state-of the art operating rooms, including an intraoperative MRI, which enables our expert neurosurgeons to perform complex brain tumor surgeries.
We’re also advancing the treatment of brain tumors and lesions located in or very close to parts of the brain that control important functions with awake craniotomy. The procedure requires the presence of a neurologist and uses leading-edge brain mapping technology called Functional MRI (fMRI) to more completely resect a tumor by identifying responses or loss of neurological function while the patient is awake.
OhioHealth has unique expertise in the surgical treatment of cancerous tumors in the spinal column, spinal cord or peripheral nerves. We use surgery to remove the tumor, reduce pain, re-stabilize the spine or improve quality of life by managing or preventing neurological deficits. Among the treatments we use are:
