Metastatic brain tumors are those which are located in the brain but originated from some other organ outside the brain. Sometimes brain metastases occur in patients with a known history of cancer. However, in other cases, a metastatic tumor is the first sign of previously undetected cancer.
At least 30% of the patients we treat suffer from metastatic brain tumors, making metastasis treatment one of our core strengths. While many clinicians treat these tumors, few have access to the entire spectrum of technologies and trials developed by our brain tumor specialists.
Metastatic brain tumors can be treated with a variety of therapies — some less invasive than others. From surgery and radiosurgery to targeted chemotherapy, there are many options to aggressively repel this cancer while improving your quality of life and physical well-being. Barrow Brain & Spine has been the leader in the innovation and adoption of the most advanced technologies and treatment options for brain tumors. We are the first and only center in the world to offer the most comprehensive non-invasive radiosurgery treatment options for the best patient outcomes, including ZAP-X gyroscopic radiosurgery, CyberKnife, and Gamma Knife.
