MRI cross section
As the most comprehensive brain tumor treatment program in the nation and the only pediatric brain tumor treatment program in California funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Brain Tumor Center at UCSF offers the most advanced treatment available for adults and children who have a brain tumor or spinal cord tumor. State-of-the-art neurosurgical techniques and instrumentation are combined with clinical trials of newly developed therapies in a program of care given by doctors and nurses dedicated to the treatment of patients with brain tumors and the search for a cure. The Center also offers social services and neuropsychological consultation, and has close ties with organizations sponsoring support groups and other resources for patients and their families.
 
The multidisciplinary faculty of the Brain Tumor Center includes neurosurgeons, medical neuro-oncologists, and radiation oncologists who are Board certified in their specialty. Many of these specialists have fellowship training in a subspecialty of their discipline-training that requires a doctor to commit as many as 6 years of study after their internship and residency training to perfect their knowledge and skill in their chosen subspecialty.
