The Many Manifestations of Meningioma

Meningiomas, the most common primary brain tumor, can arise literally anywhere in the intracranial dura – the thick membrane that surrounds the brain – and even inside the fluid filled chambers of the brain. Neurosurgeons need to have a full surgical armamentarium for their removal, ideally using keyhole techniques that maximize tumor removal and minimize risk of collateral damage and complications. Read about Pacific Neuroscience Institute’s extensive meningioma experience.

At the Pacific Brain Tumor Center, we provide comprehensive care for patients with all types of brain tumors, including benign and malignant brain tumors, tumors of the skull base as well as metastatic brain tumors that arise from cancers elsewhere in the body. See more.
