The combined comprehensive resources available at the Hoag Family Cancer Institute and Pickup Family Neurosciences Institute deliver a best practice, integrated care setting, with access to the latest clinical trials. Each specific type of tumor is addressed with the particular patient s situation in mind.
Experience, combined with advanced clinical trials and technology, including two dedicated operating rooms equipped with the newest tools available anywhere is what sets our brain tumor program apart.
