The Brain Tumor Institute, part of Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, is committed to offering leading-edge treatments to our brain tumor patients. As an important part of this, our specialists are also involved in a number of research projects and clinical trials at any given time.
Personalized Treatment Plans for Proven Results
Understanding each patient’s tumor leads to better outcomes. At many other cancer centers, everyone with the same tumor is given the same treatment plan. However, each person’s tumor is as unique as them, and so a customized treatment plan is necessary. With the innovative treatment options our researchers develop and discover, we are able to provide our patients with a customized treatment plan that best fits their needs and provides the highest probability of a good outcome.
The Hope of Clinical Trials
As a patient of the Brain Tumor Institute, you may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial of a promising, emerging treatment option. Clinical trials represent hope and the latest advancements in brain tumor treatment. We want our patients to always have access to clinical trials, which are above and beyond the traditional standard of care that many cancer centers offer.
