The Center features three dedicated state-of-the-art endoscopic suites, each equipped with the most advanced optics and computer navigation systems. Jefferson surgeons are largely responsible for development of the micro-instrumentation specific to endoscopic neurosurgery.
Treatment also includes stereotactic-focused radiation surgery, including a Gamma Knife unit and a linear accelerator that supports state-of-the-art shaped beam surgery, which provides beams of radiation programmed to target the tumor while sparing surrounding healthy tissue. Jefferson is the only hospital in the Delaware Valley to offer this capability.
Treatments may involve a single session or multiple sessions, depending on the location and nature of the tumor.
Our Center physicians are also involved in advancing the field in skull base reconstruction surgical techniques and the development of innovative robotic surgical
