Brain tumors

Being diagnosed with a brain tumor, skull base tumor or spinal cord tumor can feel like an overwhelming, devastating event. It presents patients and their loved ones with life-changing circumstances, leading to a search for the best information, treatment options and support services possible.

The experts within Allina Health’s John Nasseff Neuroscience Institute and related services collaborate to provide comprehensive treatment that address a patient’s mind, body and spirit. We believe that each patient deserves the best technology, from a compassionate staff, in an environment focused on their unique needs.

Neurosurgeons, Neuro-oncology, medical-oncology and radiation oncology specialists at Allina Health are recognized nationwide as among the finest available. 


Neuro-oncology brings together two medical specialties to find and treat tumors in the brain and spine.

  • Neurology is the care and treatment of problems with the nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord.
  • Oncology is the detection and treatment of cancer cells in tumors.
