  • Genetic Testing

    Genetic testing is clinically available for most hereditary forms of cancer and usually involves a blood draw. Testing is offered to at-risk individuals, but only after the benefits, risks and limitations of each test are carefully considered. Individuals who undergo testing and are found to have a positive test result are at an increased risk for developing cancer. However, it is important to note that a positive test result does not necessarily mean that an individual will develop cancer.

  • Weekly Brain and Spine Tumor Conference

    An important factor in excellent care is creating a multidisciplinary team where experts from different fields come together to discuss patient care. Every week on Thursday mornings a conference is held called the Brain and Spine Multidisciplinary Conference. Neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, neuroradiologists, neuro-oncologists and neuroradiation oncologists sit together and patient’s cases are presented. MRI’s are reviewed as a team and often the actual slides showing the patient’s tumor cells are projected onto a screen as well. The best plan of care is developed by integrating recommendations from each sub-specialty. If your case is being presented we encourage you to call our clinic at 321.841.7218 to discuss the treatment recommendations.
