Alan Carver

I am a neurologist with an interest in the neurological complications of cancer and its treatment. The needs of patients with brain and spinal cord tumors can be very complex, particularly in the advanced stages of their illnesses, and I am working with other neurologists as well as specialists in other fields to ensure that these patients receive the best possible care.
