Brain Tumors

SUNY Downstate Medical Center employs state of the art technology to treat brain tumors including: computer based frameless and frame based stereotaxis for surgical planning, neuroendoscopic techniques to treat pituitary tumors, radiosurgery, as well as cortical mapping and electrophysiological intraoperative monitoring. Our brain tumor team also works closely with our neurointerventionalist, Dr. Mangla, to pre-operatively embolize tumors when appropriate. Using these available technologies, we are able to minimize the risks associated with brain tumor surgery and optimize patient outcomes.
