Neuro-oncology physicians specialize in the diagnosis and medical treatment of tumors of the nervous system. At Jackson Memorial Hospital, neurosurgeons operate on approximately 200 brain tumors a year, which is more than the number performed at any other medical institutions in Florida. Jackson Memorial has the latest devices to ensure patient-focused, state-of-the-art care. These advanced devices include:
- Stereotactic devices, both with and without frame
- Ultrasonic aspirators
- Intraoperative CT scan
- Ultrasound guidance
- Intraoperative fluoroscopy
- Angiography or arteriography, a medical imaging technique
The neuro-oncology program is associated with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and is led by Dr. Deborah Heros.
