The UAB Approach

Once under our care, your neurosurgeon will confer with the multidisciplinary brain tumor/neuro-oncology team, to determine the best short-term and long- term strategy for your treatment. We employ the most scientifically advanced techniques such as intraoperative, precision image-guided navigation systems and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional brain mapping, radiosurgery, minimally invasive neurosurgery, and awake intraoperative functional mapping. Our team of neurosurgeons has pioneered and fostered neuroimaging, neurosurgical treatment options, clinical translational research, and innovative clinical trials for the treatment and management of brain tumors.
