Second Opinion
from the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center

We know being diagnosed with a brain tumor is an emotional, unnerving experience – but one of the most important things you can do to advocate for your health is explore expert approaches to care. 

Each year, more than a thousand families turn to the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center for the treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the brain, skull base, spine and spinal cord. The institute has been ranked No. 1 for neurosurgery in NY, NJ, CT and PA – and among the top 5% of the nation’s neuroscience programs five years in a row.  

In line with our commitment to guiding patients and their loved ones as they navigate their journey from diagnosis through treatment, our Brain Tumor Board is frequently sought out to provide second opinions that bring to light cutting-edge treatment options and evidence-based care plans for even some of the rarest types of tumors.  

Comprised of neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, radiation oncologists, a neuro-radiologist, a neuropathologist, medical oncologists, a brain tumor nurse and a clinical trial nurse, our Board’s multidisciplinary expertise allows us to holistically evaluate  each individual case and craft treatment recommendations designed to provide patients the best possible outcomes.
