University Neurologists - Oncology
Few diagnoses are more frightening than brain cancer, news that often sends patients searching the Internet and traveling great distances to receive the most advanced care. Those patients can find care with the physicians in the Section of Neuro Oncology at Rush University Medical center.
When treating brain tumors, the team at the Coleman Foundation Comprehensive Brain Tumor Clinic at Rush collaborates to devise and implement treatment plans that are as gentle as possible on the patient while still providing the best possible outcomes. This combined approach ensures that every patient receives state-of-the-art care, tailored to his or her specific cancer, from some of the most experienced and qualified specialists in the area. In addition, the center provides patients with opportunity to participate in clinical trials of promising new therapies not available anywhere else in Chicago.
