This content was provided by Dr. Ramakrishna "As Co-Director of the Rhodes Center for Glioblastoma at New York Presbyterian and Director of the Brain Metastasis Program at Weill Cornell Medicine, my clinical and research goals are to advance the field of brain tumor therapy. At Weill Cornell. we use the most advanced technologies and surgical procedures available to safely remove tumors. For example, we use advanced intraoperative brain mapping techniques to identify essential areas of brain function prior to tumor removal. In addition, we use small endoscopes and microsurgery to remove tumors in otherwise difficult to access locations. In selected cases, we also use small lasers to treat brain tumors that can allow you to go home the day following surgery. Finally, we use stereotactic radiosurgery when applicable. These technologies, and others, ensure that tumors are treated in the safest, least invasive way possible. After surgery, our world class Neuro-Oncology team will assess the type of brain tumor you have and come up with an individualized care plan. In fact, our team hails from some of the most respected cancer centers in the world. I trained at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas prior to joining Cornell and our head Neuro-Oncologist, Dr. Howard Fine, lead the Neuro-Oncology Branch at the National Institutes of Health prior to joining our team. In certain instances, a clinical trial may be appropriate and here at Weill Cornell, we have some of the most exciting new investigational agents available, including tumor vaccines and novel chemotherapies. Please do not hesitate to contact my office for questions or to make an appointment. We will work hard to ensure that the best, most individualized treatment plan is made for you."
