Neuro-Oncology Program

Moffitt Cancer Center's Neuro-Oncology Program specializes in the evaluation and treatment of patients with tumors of the brain, skull base and spine. We offer diagnostic and therapeutic services in a single location, along with a comprehensive range of supportive care options that can improve each patient's quality of life during and after treatment. Additionally, investigational therapies, such as glioblastoma vaccines, are available through our robust clinical trials program, which offers patients access to novel treatments before they are approved for use in other settings.

Referring physicians who entrust their patients to Moffitt's Neuro-Oncology Program are securing for them the highest caliber of medical attention. Within our advanced program, we have disease-specific specialists in the fields of:

  • Medical oncology
  • Radiation oncology
  • Surgery
  • Neurosurgery
  • Pathology
  • Radiology
  • Screening and staging
  • Supportive care
  • Clinical psychology

Through this diverse group of specialists who collaborate on each patient's cancer treatment, Moffitt delivers the most advanced therapies with exceptional skill. Even the most complex surgeries, such as awake craniotomies, BrainLab intraoperative diffusion tractography navigation, minimally invasive surgery and brain tumor ablative LASER treatment, are performed in substantial numbers at Moffitt. Other innovative offerings include chemotherapy infusions, experimental vaccines, immunotherapy, radiation therapy and stereotactic radiosurgery for tumors of the brain and spine.

To determine the best approach for each patient, our multispecialty tumor board meets to review a number of individual factors, such as the size and stage of the patient’s tumor and the patient’s unique genetic makeup. As a result of this comprehensive approach, Moffitt's Neuro-Oncology Program consistently achieves outcomes that are better than or comparable to the national averages.

Additionally, Moffitt provides detailed records to help keep referring physicians updated on their patients’ progress. And, to facilitate further communication between referring physicians and Moffitt's neuro-oncologists, our clinic offers a 24/7 hotline for questions and record requests.
