The Neurosurgical Group of Texas is uniquely suited for the aggressive treatment of various kinds of brain tumors, both malignant and benign. The surgeons in the group are well trained and experienced in the management of complex intracranial growths, and are situated in one of the foremost neurological centers in the country for treatment of these disorders.
The surgical treatment of brain tumors requires a multidisciplinary or team approach. Often the best surgery will involve the talents and skills of qualified physicians from many other related fields including neuro-oncologists, pathologist and neuroanesthesiologists. Intracranial
surgical patients are convalesced and recovered immediately in a postsurgical recovery room by a nursing staff thoroughly versed in neurological vital signs. Following the recovery room patients go to a dedicated neurosurgical intensive care unit where nursing staff is tailored and trained to meet the unique needs of these patients.
All of these different disciplines represent the outlay of significant equipment, personnel, and financial overhead, and as a result quality intracranial neurosurgery is really limited to large urban centers. The doctors in the Neurosurgical Group of Texas confine their treatment of
serious brain tumors to the Texas Medical Center hospitals, recognized around the world for excellence in state of the art medicine and neurosurgery.
The doctors in the Neurosurgical Group of Texas are also at the forefront of technological advances in the field of brain tumor surgery, including image guided stereotactic surgery and radiosurgery.
