Brain Tumors & Brain Cancer

Neurosurgeon Viviane Tabar looks at a brain scan

Viviane Tabar, Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery, specializes in caring for people with primary brain tumors; tumors of the skull lining or skull base; tumors of the pituitary gland; and tumors that have spread (metastasized) to the brain from other parts of the body.

If you’ve been diagnosed with a brain tumor, you are facing many decisions — choices that can be overwhelming and hard. Where should you go for care? What’s your first step? 

At Memorial Sloan Kettering, our team of experts is dedicated to caring for people with brain tumors and finding new treatments for the disease. Our world-class surgeons, neurologists, nurses, and other specialists will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.

Our unparalleled expertise in the field means we offer the latest advances in care for all types of brain tumors, including primary brain tumors, metastatic brain tumors, pituitary tumors, meningiomas, and skull base tumors. We use the most advanced surgical technologies, such as intraoperative MRI scanning, brain mapping, and stereotactic radiosurgery. We also diagnose and treat people with neurological disorders unrelated to cancer.
