Neuro-oncology is the branch of medicine that deals with cancers of the brain and nervous system. Neuro-oncology cancers can be primary (starting in the brain or nervous system) or secondary (cancer that starts in another part of the body and metastasizes, or spreads, to the brain or nervous system). At Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Johnston-Willis and Henrico Doctors’ hospitals, our neuro-oncology programs offer the most advanced equipment and techniques available for brain tumors and neurosurgery. Our comprehensive services include radiosurgery (including Gamma Knife® technology), biological therapy and early phase clinical trials.
