Meningiomas are one of the most common brain tumors in the United States. They are typically benign tumors that grow from the lining of the brain and push inwards. Many meningiomas do not need treatment, just observation. However, only a brain tumor treatment specialist can make this assessment, so it’s important that you review your unique case in depth with the neurosurgeons at Barrow Brain & Spine.
As the busiest center in the United States for meningioma treatment, we perform more than 400 meningioma procedures per year, making Barrow Brain & Spine a leading neurological treatment center in the country. For over 50 years we have taken pride in providing state of the art care for patients from across the country and around the world who suffer from neurological conditions including meningioma.
Not every meningioma needs to be treated, but all head and brain tumors should be taken seriously and a dedicated brain tumor specialist should guide all decisions about brain tumor treatment. In cases where meningioma treatment is necessary, our world-renowned team of neurological specialists can help you navigate your landscape of options, which includes surgery, radiosurgery, brachytherapy, and endovascular embolization.
