Brain Cancer Services

A diagnosis of brain cancer is one of the most frightening and life-changing events imaginable. The brain is arguably our most vital organ, controlling and regulating every part of our body. All of our physical processes – vision, speech, breathing, motor skills, etc. – are made possible by the proper functioning of the brain. It also controls the things that make us unique as individuals – our thoughts, memory, behavior and emotions.

Only the best care available.

When you receive treatment for brain cancers at Vidant Health, you can rest assured that you’ll get the best care available, for both the physical and emotional aspects of your condition. You’ll have a team of specialists that will take time to explain your diagnosis and treatment options, and a navigator that will stay with you and your family throughout the entire process.

You can learn more about brain tumors by visiting our online health library.

Treatment options for brain cancer include surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Many patients will receive a combination of treatments. Your specific treatment plan will depend on several factors such as the type and grade of tumor, its location and size, and your age and general health.

No matter where you live in our region, you’ll have access to the Leksell Gamma Knife® technology at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, including the Perfexion™ machine that is only available at two hospitals in North Carolina. This treatment offers hope for patients with brain lesions that were once considered inoperable. Your care team will be able to advise you if this technology is right for you.
