Clinical Trial Studying Efficacy of Brachytherapy

We are engaged in ongoing research to develop the brain metastasis treatments of the future as well as early detection strategies. In addition, we are currently enrolling eligible patients for a clinical trial studying the efficacy of brachytherapy in patients whose brain cancer returned after radiation therapy and require surgery to remove the tumor. Learn more about the trial and enrolling your patient.

Convenient, Seamless Care

Your patient receives completely integrated care at the MBMC. To avoid multiple visits on different days, your patient meets with several specialists on the same day. Before your patient’s first appointment, our experts review their case so they can present the best personalized treatment options.

After evaluation and treatment at the MBMC, your patient returns to your care — but we’re here anytime they need us.
