Neurosurgical oncology practice specializing in gliomas building an intraoperative stimulation mapping program.
In the modern era of glioma management, the neurosurgical oncologist is an essential member of the treatment team and is often the first point of contact for newly diagnosed patients. In most cases, the maximal reduction of tumor burden is an essential first step in the multimodal treatment of low-grade gliomas (LGGs) and high-grade gliomas (HGGs). Central paradigms in the surgical treatment of these tumors include Tumor biopsy for histologic diagnosis, Cytoreduction to the functional boundaries of the tumor, and Judicious application of adjuvant therapy regimens tailored to the clinical circumstances. Increasingly, the neurosurgeon is a key driver of these surgical and nonsurgical treatment options.Author(s): Miriam Shao*
