AdventHealth Opens Multidisciplinary Brain Tumor Program at Celebration
A multidisciplinary neuro-oncology clinic at AdventHealth Celebration opened on August 12, bringing together leading physicians across multiple specialty areas to help decrease the time between diagnosis and treatment for patients diagnosed with all forms of neurological cancerous and non-cancerous brain tumors. In a single-day appointment, patients meet with and are evaluated by a medical oncologist, neurosurgeon and radiation oncologist to create a comprehensive treatment plan close to home.
The new clinic extends the program currently found at AdventHealth Orlando. Conditions treated at the clinic include meningioma, pituitary tumors and skull-base tumors, among others. Patients will also be able to undergo screening for procedures such as Gamma Knife Radiosurgery and the Optune tumor treating field system, previously only available at AdventHealth Orlando.
For more information or to refer a patient, call Neuro-Oncology Nurse Navigator Carol Peacock, MSN, RN, OCN, at 407-303-2770, ext.1224233.
