Led by Peter Forsyth, MD, the Neuro-Oncology Program at Moffitt Cancer Center offers a full range of diagnostic and treatment services in a single location. Our neuro-oncology specialists offer a variety of innovative treatments to patients with brain and spine malignancies, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy and surgical options ranging from minimally invasive procedures to even the most complex awake craniotomies. Eligible Moffitt patients may also have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial, where patients can benefit from innovative therapies like glioblastoma vaccines before they are made available elsewhere.
