Brain & Skull Base Tumors

Our brain tumor specialists have established seven Centers of Excellence to provide patients with comprehensive treatment strategies, including options only available in North Texas at UT Southwestern. This supports our capabilities in achieving the best possible result for each patient.

The surgeons involved in our seven programs strive to completely remove each tumor. In cases where complete removal with surgery is not possible, we work with medical colleagues to determine if targeted radiation or chemotherapy will be effective in controlling the tumor; and in many cases, patients are able to live normal, productive lives.

 Drs. Toral Patel, Bruce Mickey, and Samuel Barnett are some of our brain tumor specialists.

Everyone involved in this effort shares the goal of providing the best outcome possible for each patient.
