Brain tumors can be aggressive and challenging to treat, even for experts. MD Anderson’s Anne C. Brooks Brain and Spine Center has nearly 75 years of experience diagnosing and treating brain tumors, spine tumors and skull base tumors. Our world-renowned surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation therapists work together to develop a customized care plan centered on your specific treatment needs. 

Successful brain cancer treatment depends on early and accurate diagnosis. At the Brain and Spine Center, our neuropathologists focus only on diagnosing brain and spine tumors, with a wealth of experience that comes from seeing thousands of new cases each year.

Advanced technologies and less-invasive treatment options such as proton therapy, BrainSuite, GammaKnife® radiosurgery and new targeted therapies provide the best hope for successful treatment with the least impact on your physical and mental function.

 Types of cancers we treat:

  •     All types of glioma tumors, including glioblastoma
  •     Meiningiomas
  •     Medulloblastoma
  •     Benign and malignant skull base tumors
  •     Spinal tumors

Take it one day at a time, and never give up.
