Pioneering New and Better Ways to Treat Brain Tumors
How far would you travel to receive brain tumor treatment from some of the world's best brain tumor specialists? The field of neurosurgery has never held more promise than it does right now -- and for the past 25 years, Johns Hopkins Medicine has been at the forefront of discovery and innovation in neurosurgery.
For as far you are willing to travel, the experts of the Johns Hopkins Brain Tumor Center in Baltimore, Maryland, will go just as far to find the best outcome for your complex condition. Your journey for the best medical care starts here with:
In the Brain Tumor Center, our neurosurgeons are not just clinical experts, they are also researchers who never stop searching for insight into the causes of malignant and benign brain tumors, for better knowledge of symptoms, and, most importantly, for new treatments for all types of brain tumors to give you the best possible chance at recovery.
That’s the Promise of Medicine.
Renowned surgeons, advanced technology for brain tumor surgery
Performing more than 4,000 procedures annually, our world-renowned neurosurgeons have the dedication, experience, and expertise that helped earn them and their colleagues the #1 ranking for a neurology and neurosurgery program in the country by U.S. News and World Report.
While surgery is the most common treatment for brain tumors, our approach to surgery is not. Our techniques enable our surgeons to go deeper inside the brain to deliver lifesaving treatment to the tumor site, or to remove malignant tumors altogether.
We uniquely tailor each patient's care based on their diagnosis, condition, and personal needs. And our patients have access to the latest surgical advances which are only offered in a few facilities worldwide.
These advances include image-guided technology and stereotactic radiosurgery -- including the CyberKnife® -- which target tumors and minimize damage to surrounding tissue.
Treating all types of brain tumors
Johns Hopkins is the leading treatment center for the more than 120 types of brain tumors, including:
