Metastatic Brain Tumor Center Doctors and Staff

At the Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Brain Tumor Center, a team of doctors and other health care professionals works together to provide the most effective and safest treatment possible for patients with metastatic brain tumors.

The main members of the brain tumor care team are:

  • Neurosurgeons — doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors and other disorders of the nervous system
  • Nurses or physician assistants — health care professionals who practice medicine under the supervision of physicians and surgeons — in the Department of Neurology & Neurosurgery

Other members of the core treatment team usually include:

  • Neuro-oncologists — doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors
  • Neuroradiologists — doctors who specialize in imaging the brain and nervous system
  • Oncologists — doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer
  • Ophthalmologists — eye doctors
  • Pathologists — doctors who identify brain tumors by studying cells and tissues under a microscope
  • Radiation oncologists — doctors who specialize in the use of radiation therapy to treat cancer
