The type and location of the Brainstem Glioma tumor determines treatment options. Most patients require complex management only available at a comprehensive cancer center such as UCLA, where a team of physicians can work together. Advanced technology and equipment at UCLA allows safer surgery and radiation therapies for Brainstem Gliomas.
The Neuro-ICU cares for patients with all types of neurosurgical and neurological injuries, including stroke, brain hemorrhage, trauma and tumors. We work in close cooperation with your surgeon or medical doctor with whom you have had initial contact. Together with the surgeon or medical doctor, the Neuro-ICU attending physician and team members direct your family member's care while in the ICU. The Neuro-ICU team consists of the bedside nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians in specialty training (Fellows) and attending physicians. UCLA Neuro ICU Family Guide
