Our Approach To Metastatic Brain Tumors in Adults

What Sets Us Apart

A metastatic brain tumor is cancer that has spread to the brain from another part of the body. Any type of tumor can spread to the brain. The most common ones include cancers of the lung, breast, gastrointestinal tract, and kidney, as well as melanoma, a type of skin cancer.

At Pelisyonkis Langone’s Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center, doctors collaborate to create a personalized treatment plan for people with metastatic brain tumors. Our team includes neurosurgeons; surgical oncologists; radiologists; neuro-oncologists, who specialize in cancers of the brain and nervous system; medical and radiation oncologists; and pathologists, who study diseases in a laboratory.
