Metastatic brain tumor: Approach to Care
Established with the goal of curing brain cancer, the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy at the University of Florida is the hub for some of the brightest minds in the fields of neuro-oncology, neurosurgery and radiation oncology. National leading researchers and their teams are collaborating daily with physicians who have dedicated their entire careers to finding a cure for brain cancer. Together, they are using the latest molecular, biological, medical and surgical techniques to understand the basic causes of brain tumors and develop entirely new treatment methods. UF Health neurosurgeons perform approximately 600 brain tumor operations annually, making them one of the highest volume academic neurosurgery teams in the country.
