Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gutin "I have had a lifelong interest in neuro-oncology, and I am a specialist in the surgery of benign and malignant tumors of the brain and spinal cord. My research interests are radiation biology, gene therapy, and the use of agents to block the formation of blood vessels within tumors to stop their growth. I work very closely with a team of neurologists and radiation oncologists here at Memorial Sloan-Kettering to bring the most advanced standard and experimental treatments to our patients."
