Advanced brain tumor treatment

A glioma is a type of brain tumor that accounts for 80 percent of all primary brain tumors. Although neurosurgery is a common treatment, this type of tumor extends into different parts of the brain, which does not allow surgeons to remove the entire tumor.

However, our neurosurgeons were the first in Tennessee to use a fluorescence-guided surgery on patients with high-grade gliomas. This advanced technology requires patients to drink an oral solution before surgery that "lights up" cancerous cells under blue light filters on a surgical microscope. In some cases, this allows surgeons to see and remove more of the tumor.
