Maintaining brain health is key to living a healthier life. As we age, our brains become subject to risks associated with advancing years, but there are ways people can minimize some of these risks and enhance brain resilience. Read more.
Vision is arguably our most important sense. Learn about minimally invasive keyhole surgery options for brain, skull base & pituitary tumors impacting the anterior visual pathways & eye movements.
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.

Keeping Cerebrospinal Fluid Leaks and Meningitis at Bay. Defining the optimal exit strategy in pituitary and skull base tumor surgery, PNI authors have published a landmark article in the May 2018 issue of Journal of Neurosurgery. Leading the way in the field of minimally invasive surgery, PNI’s expert team reported on intraoperative repair of skull base defects and prevention of post-operative CSF leaks and meningitis in over 500 patients with pituitary tumors and skull base tumors.
The past year at Pacific Neuroscience Institute was one of amazing growth and transformational milestones. Read about what we have accomplished and what lies ahead in 2018 including a new clinic and novel clinical trials.
Although classified as benign, craniopharyngiomas pose a great challenge. Find out why Dr. Harvey Cushing, father of modern neurosurgery, called these pituitary tumors “the most formidable of intracranial tumors.”
SANTA MONICA (September 1, 2017) – Pacific Neuroscience Institute announced today the launch of PNI Medical Group’s affiliation with Providence Saint John’s Health Clinic.
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.
