Research-Based Care for Brain and Spinal Tumors

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a brain or spinal tumor, you want the best care from a team that not only offers the latest treatments, but is doing research to make treatment even better and more effective. NewYork-Presbyterian's Brain Tumor Centers provide comprehensive care for brain and spinal tumors and treat more brain tumors than any other center in New York. Among the busiest programs in the nation, we treat thousands of people with brain and spinal tumors each year, including primary tumors as well as metastatic tumors. As a leading academic medical center, we are at the forefront of brain tumor research. Our clinical activities are combined with vigorous research efforts, aimed at improving outcomes for patients with brain and spinal tumors.

  • A Team Approach: Our highly experienced physicians – including neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, radiation oncologists, neuro-radiologists, neuro-pathologists, and other specialists – create a treatment plan tailored to your individual diagnosis and needs.

  • Opportunities for Clinical Trials: Whether you have a primary tumor or metastatic disease (cancer that has spread to your brain or spine from another part of the body), you'll have access to a wide range of clinical trials of promising new therapies.
  • A Commitment to Basic and Translational Science: Our doctors and laboratory scientists are working together to study how brain tumors grow and develop, testing new therapeutic approaches in the lab and translating the most promising of these advances into clinical trials with the aim of developing better therapies.
  • Rhodes Center for Glioblastoma: Aims to advance care for glioblastoma and other brain cancers via a three-pronged approach: Multi-disciplinary patient care, translational research, and education.
