Neuro-Oncology

Chesapeake Regional Healthcare's multidisciplinary neuro-oncology program is centered on diagnosing and treating patients with primary and secondary cancers affecting the brain and spinal cord. The neuro-oncologists also treat tumors related to neurofibromatosis, secondary effects of cancer on the nervous system, and side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

The neuro-oncology treatment program includes:

  • Surgical resection
  • Stereotactic (focused) radiotherapy
  • Intra-lesional radiotherapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Gene therapy
  • Investigational protocols

To ensure patients with brain tumors get the best care possible, our neuro-oncologists work closely with our neurosurgeons, radiation therapists and neuroradiologists.
