Tumors We Treat
As the Ivy Brain Tumor Center grows, every patient, regardless of diagnosis or stage of the brain tumor, will have the option to enroll in a Phase 0 clinical trial.
Common subtypes include astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, glioblastoma, and gliosarcoma
Also known as ‘secondary’ brain tumors; originate from cancer in another part of the body
