Expert Treatment for Malignant and Benign Brain Tumors
Whether your brain tumor is benign or malignant, the brain tumor surgeons at our center are experts in the latest surgical techniques and technologies. We offer a comprehensive approach to treatment that includes:
- A team of specialists who work together to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient.
- The most advanced diagnostic capabilities
- The latest surgical treatments

The first step in treatment is an accurate diagnosis. We use the most sophisticated imaging technologies available to get a clear picture of the tumor and its location. Once we completely understand your individual situation, we develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
If surgery is required, our experienced neurosurgeons use the latest techniques and technologies to remove the tumor with minimal damage to surrounding tissue. We also offer radiosurgery, a non-invasive alternative to surgery that uses focused radiation beams to precisely target and destroy the tumor cells.
A Multidisciplinary Approach to Care
The successful diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors require a multidisciplinary approach. Our team of specialists includes neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, neurologists, and neuro-oncologists who work together to provide you with the best possible care. This comprehensive approach ensures that all aspects of your care are considered and that you have access to the latest treatments and technologies.
Radiant Oncology is home to the only neuro-oncology program in Southern Arizona. Our team of experts offers comprehensive, leading-edge care for patients with brain and spinal tumors. We offer a full range of services, from diagnosis to treatment and beyond. Treatment may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery.
Combined with our neuro-oncologist and radiation oncologist team, we offer the most comprehensive radiation therapy program in Southern Arizona. We use leading technology and techniques to deliver precise, targeted radiation therapy while minimizing side effects.
Initial treatment for most brain tumors will be surgery. The type of surgery performed will depend on the type and location of the tumor. In some cases, a craniotomy may be performed. This is a procedure in which a portion of the skull is removed to access the brain. Surgery may also be used to biopsy the tumor or to remove as much of the tumor as possible.
External Imaging Review
Our brain tumor center offers an external imaging review service. This service provides an expert opinion on brain tumor imaging studies from anywhere in the world. A board-certified neurosurgeon and neuro-oncologist will review your images and provide a comprehensive report within five business days.
Brain Tumor Clinical Trials
Clinical trials bring hope to patients by testing new treatments and therapies. Our team of highly-trained specialists is dedicated to providing our patients with access to the latest clinical trials. We work with our patients to find the best possible treatment options.
Trials can be especially helpful for patients who have tumors that are difficult to treat or for those who have not responded well to other treatments. We believe that well-designed and carefully conducted clinical trials are the best way to find new and better treatments for brain tumors.
