A Progressive Brain Tumor Program
In The Heart Of The Carolinas
The physicians of Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates fully understand the physical and medical implications of a brain tumor diagnosis. As human beings, they also realize the emotional toll a brain tumor diagnosis can have on a patient and his or her family. That's why Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates is proud to offer comprehensive brain tumor care, from advanced surgical procedures to patient support and counseling.
Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates provides specialized medical care for patients with primary benign tumors, malignant tumors or brain metastasis from another part of the body. Our practice is a major brain tumor center, performing in excess of 300 brain tumor related procedures per year. Most importantly, the physicians and staff of Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates are here every step of the way to give brain tumor patients a clear direction, and a clear advantage.
The majority of brain tumor efforts are conducted through the Neurological Institute and the Blumenthal Cancer Center at Carolinas Medical Center. However, care is provided out of four major area hospitals, each providing state-of-the-art technologies.
A full-time neuropsychologist provides neurocognitive services. Full electro-diagnostic services complement the brain tumor effort providing intra-operative brain mapping, intra-operative EEG, SSEPs, BAERs, etc. when appropriate. Functional MRI is available through the radiology department at Presbyterian Hospital. Carolinas Medical Center offers a dedicated radiosurgical device, the Brain Lab Novalis, that makes it possible to provide state-ofthe-art, minimally invasive treatments for patients with a variety of brain tumors.
