Understanding Meningioma and Benign Brain Tumors
Meningioma is a type of benign brain tumor that originates in the meninges, the protective membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Although meningiomas are mostly non-cancerous, their growth can cause significant health issues due to the pressure they exert on the brain tissues.
At CHI St. Luke's Health - Performance Medicine, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of meningioma and other benign brain tumors. With our advanced medical expertise and state-of-the-art facilities, we provide comprehensive care for patients in the Dallas area.
Early Detection and Accurate Diagnosis
Early detection of meningioma is crucial for an effective treatment plan. Our highly skilled team of neurologists and neurosurgeons utilize advanced imaging techniques, such as MRI and CT scans, to accurately diagnose meningiomas and determine their size, location, and potential impact on the surrounding brain structures.
With our cutting-edge technology, we are able to detect even the smallest meningiomas, enabling us to intervene early and prevent further complications.
Personalized Treatment Approach
Every patient is unique, and therefore, requires an individualized treatment approach. At CHI St. Luke's Health - Performance Medicine, we develop personalized treatment plans based on the specific needs and characteristics of each meningioma case.
Our multidisciplinary team of specialists, including neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, and neurologists, collaborates to create a comprehensive and coordinated care plan for optimal outcomes. We aim to provide the most effective treatment while minimizing potential side effects.
Surgical Treatment Options for Meningioma
In cases where meningiomas are causing symptoms or growing significantly, surgical intervention may be recommended. Our skilled neurosurgeons specialize in performing minimally invasive techniques, such as keyhole surgeries, to remove meningiomas with precision while minimizing damage to the surrounding brain tissues.
Our state-of-the-art surgical facilities are equipped with the latest technology, ensuring the highest level of safety and accuracy during the procedure. Our team is experienced in handling even complex meningioma cases, providing patients with the reassurance they need.
Non-Surgical Treatment Options
In cases where surgery may not be the best option, or for patients with inoperable meningiomas, we offer non-surgical treatment alternatives.
Radiation therapy, including stereotactic radiosurgery, is a highly effective treatment method for meningiomas. This targeted form of radiation delivers precise doses to the tumor, minimizing damage to healthy brain tissues. Our radiation oncologists work closely with patients to develop personalized treatment plans, ensuring the best possible outcomes.
Supportive Care and Follow-Up
At CHI St. Luke's Health - Performance Medicine, we understand that a comprehensive approach to treatment goes beyond medical interventions.
Our dedicated team of nurses, rehabilitation specialists, and support staff provides personalized care and counseling to patients throughout their meningioma treatment journey. We are committed to addressing both the physical and emotional needs of our patients.
