Treatment Options

The most advanced treatments for brain and spinal cord tumors are available at UT Southwestern Medical Center and the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our clinicians and researchers are nationally recognized leaders in the development and use of radiation therapies to precisely target brain and spinal cord tumors while sparing surrounding tissues.

The rapid advancement of imaging techniques and technologies has enabled our specialists to determine the location, shape, and size of brain and spinal cord tumors with an unprecedented level of precision.

Our patients may also have the option to participate in one of our clinical trials. If you meet the criteria for a trial, you may be able to receive therapies years before they become available to the public. Clinical trials may also provide superior therapeutic results with fewer side effects when compared to conventional treatments. You can discuss with your UT Southwestern doctor whether you are a candidate for these groundbreaking therapies.
