Brain Tumors & Neurological Disorders

Akron General’s Neuroscience Institute and its team offers highly specialized neurosurgical procedures and intensive care for stroke, brain tumors, complex spinal conditions and peripheral nerve disorders, but also neurologic oncology and skull base surgery. In fact, our team of neurosurgeons has performed a combined total of more than 25,000 procedures.

Brain tumors, lesions, aneurysms and other serious conditions affecting the brain are often located in hard-to-access areas, surrounded by delicate nerves and arteries. Surgical procedures involving the brain and nervous system require precise and careful movements to preserve nerve function and ensure the best outcome. For those areas of the brain that are especially difficult to reach, you want to know that you are in the care of the most skilled, specialized hands. The Akron General Neuroscience Institute offers the skill of a multispecialty team, but also the advanced technology of Brain Lab – intraoperative MRI and CT - which makes treating some complex brain tumors and neurological conditions possible.
