Neuro-oncologist Eli Diamond specializes in brain tumors and the neurologic complications of cancer.
Our Department of Neurology offers expertise in the care of cancer patients with nervous system disorders, many of whom also require rehabilitation services to ensure optimal function and quality of life. The Neurology Service provides care for patients with conditions such as
- primary brain and spinal cord tumors
- metastatic tumors involving the nervous system
- paraneoplastic neurological disorders
We also offer diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients who develop neurological disorders unrelated to cancer.
Our service functions as part of our interdisciplinary Brain Tumor Center (BTC), which provides comprehensive care for patients with primary and metastatic brain tumors. The BTC fosters collaboration between our clinical and research arms of the institution.
Working in close collaboration with our Neurology Service experts, our Rehabilitation Medicine Service includes physiatrists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and others help to improve the quality of life and level of function of our patients, both adult and pediatric.
We provide such services as:
- functional training
- strengthening programs
- training in the use of ambulatory assistive devices
- lymphedema management
- treatments based on a patient’s ability to perform daily living skills.
