The Gaffin Center for Neuro-Oncology diagnoses and treats patients suffering from either primary brain tumors or secondary brain tumors (metastases). Additionally, patients who suffer from neurological complication of any systemic tumors (oncological or hematological tumors) are also referred for diagnosis and treatment at the Center for Neuro-Oncology. The neurological complications of these patients can be related to either the presence of the primary tumor or as to the result of treatment such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
