School of Medicine
We are currently focused on the study of low and high grade gliomas, meningiomas, pituitary tumors, acoustic neuromas/CP angle tumors, and metastatic tumors through our 10-year institutional database. For each tumor type, we focus on the following target areas:
- Defining appropriate inpatient and longitudinal outcome measures
- Investigating radiographic and clinical factors predictive of iatrogenic injury or poor outcome
- Investigating patient and operative factors contributing to perioperative morbidity and mortality
- Assessing the efficacy of various surgical techniques and synthetic agents in the prevention of CSF leak and pseudomeningocele formation (for acoustic neuromas)
- Investigating laboratory parameters of endocrinopathy predictive of response to surgical treatment (for pituitary tumors)
- Investigating novel radiographic measures to predict histological grade and overall survival (for low and high grade gliomas)
- Studying histological characteristics predictive of tumor recurrence (for meningiomas)
