Medical and surgical expertise

Our York-based team of neurosurgeons provides medical and surgical treatment options for a range of brain tumors. This includes traditional open surgery, skull-base surgery, minimally invasive surgical techniques and more.

Advanced diagnostic testing

To better locate your tumor and get an accurate diagnosis, we offer a variety of advanced diagnostic tests. These include CT scans, MRI scans, electroencephalograms, biopsies and lumbar punctures.

Targeted radiation treatment

We offer proton therapy, a highly advanced and targeted type of radiation that delivers a higher radiation dose to the cancer while minimizing damage to healthy tissue. This can lead to faster tumor shrinkage and improved quality of life during treatment.

Early detection and treatment

Early detection and treatment is of the utmost importance for brain tumors. Our team works quickly and efficiently to diagnose and begin treating brain tumors as soon as possible, which can lead to better outcomes.

Industry leading collaboration
