Treatments for Meningioma Tumors

Eighty-five percent of meningiomas are noncancerous. This means not all need to be treated right away. We'll talk to you about your specific situation once we've gotten a detailed look. We'll discuss treatment timing and options together. Once treatment is needed, most can be removed with surgery, which is the most common form of treatment. A combination approach with radiation therapy after surgery may be the next step if your surgeon can’t remove the tumor completely. If surgery is too dangerous, radiation therapy may be the only treatment you need.

Your treatment plan will depend on the size, location and symptoms associated with the tumor. Our neurologists are experts in brain and spine tumors. They work day-in and day-out to treat patients just like you. Read our treatment options below.
