Brain and Spine Tumor Care

Southeast Hospital’s Brain and Spine Center is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art, compassionate care to adult patients and families with brain and spine tumors.

Although our goal is to provide knowledgeable staff and advanced technologies to treat these tumors, we also provide a personal approach to each individual person.

Our program offers:

  • A team approach including neurosurgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, neurologists, neuroradiologists, pathologists, rehabilitation specialists, as well as experienced neuroscience nurses.
  • Radiation oncology services.
  • Brain tumor treatments include Gliadel wafers which are designed to deliver a chemotherapy drug directly into the surgical site.
  • An image-guided neuronavigational system in the operating room, giving the neurosurgeon a computerized map of the tumor and key structures within the brain and spine. The surgery department is staffed with a dedicated neurosurgical operating room team.
  • Neuroradiology services such as MRI, CT angiography, PET scan, nuclear medicine studies, and cerebral angiography.
  • Neurorehabilitation, with an inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, outpatient and home health therapy services, including Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies.
  • Patient support services including social workers, pastoral care, home health, hospice services and a cancer support group.
