The Most Experience and a Team-Based Approach to Care
The TriHealth/Mayfield Brain & Spine partnership provides our patients with the largest team of physicians, bringing the most clinical experience, of any neuroscience professionals in Southwest Ohio. More patients come to us, than any other health system, to receive care from our highly-trained experts.
TriHealth’s team-based approach includes regularly scheduled Tumor Board meetings where our brain tumor specialists along with our partners at Mayfield Brain & Spine, review challenging cases and recommend treatment plans. The Tumor Board includes the region’s only fellowship-trained neuro-oncologist along with neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and pathologists. The team reviews brain tumor scans and patient histories, discusses possible treatment plans, and arrives at a consensus opinion, which is then discussed with the patient and his or her family.
We offer a complete spectrum of brain tumor treatment including:
- Metastatic tumors
- Skull based tumors
- Pituitary tumors
- Acoustic neuroma
- Spinal tumors
The brain tumor team utilizes advanced technologies including:
- Intraoperative Airo® CT
- Stereotactic neuro-navigation
- Stereotactic radiosurgery
- Microscopic and endoscopic surgery
- Systemic and intrathecal chemotherapy
