Von Hippel Lindau syndrome causes tumors and cysts to form in different parts of the body. Your treatment plan will depend on the location and size of the tumors and associated cysts. Surgery is the most effective treatment.

Overview

Our surgical oncologists may use minimally invasive, video-assisted surgery, which can minimize pain and recovery time. Tumors in the eye are treated with laser surgery. Certain tumors can be treated with radiation. Our radiation oncology team may perform radiation therapy to kill or shrink cancer cells while minimizing the effect on other organs.
