The Promise of Medicine
Perhaps nothing is as daunting to a patient as the prospect of brain surgery. When there’s a problem — especially one that might require surgery — we imagine the worst. But, the field of neurosurgery has never held more promise than it does right now. And Johns Hopkins has been at the forefront of this last quarter century of discovery and innovation in neurosurgery. Our patients have access to the latest surgical advances offered at few facilities, including image-guided technology and precision radiosurgery that targets tumors and minimizes damage to surrounding tissues.
Why choose Johns Hopkins for brain tumor surgery?
At the Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Brain Tumor Center, patients receive the best care from the world’s leaders and teachers in neurosurgery. As one of the largest brain tumor treatment centers in the world, Johns Hopkins brain surgeons perform more than 4,000 procedures annually.
In addition to having experience in treating patients affected by all types of tumors, we also have an unparalleled research program with a history of developing new forms of treatment for patients of malignant brain tumors. In fact, two of the FDA-approved effective surgical treatments for malignant brain tumors were developed by our team at Johns Hopkins.
