Treatment for Brain Tumors Provided for Patients from Atlanta, GA, and the Surrounding Areas
There are more than 100 different types of brain tumors, and each one requires highly specialized treatment. At the forefront of the field are the board-certified neurosurgical professional doctors at Southeastern Neurosurgical Specialists serving Atlanta, GA, and the surrounding region. Southeastern Neurosurgical Specialists treats patients with a comprehensive range of conditions, from primary tumors and metastatic cancers to conditions involving the pituitary gland, skull base, and spine.
Primary brain tumors develop in the brain tissues known as the “white matter” or “gray matter.” Conversely, other brain tumors initially develop in distant organs, such as the kidney or lungs, but later spread (metastasize) to the brain. When treating any brain tumor, it’s crucial to consider which areas of the brain, nerve, and blood vessel anatomy are involved, what type of cells comprise the tumor, and what type of symptoms the patient is experiencing, in order to provide the most individualized treatment possible.
