Astrocytoma

LandingAstrocytoma

If you, a family member or friend have been diagnosed with an astrocytoma, our team of experts is here to provide help and guidance. At the Pacific Brain Tumor Center, we provide comprehensive care for patients with all types of astrocytomas (including low grade astrocytoma, anaplastic astrocytoma, and glioblastoma multiforme), as well as patient education and psychosocial support.

The optimal initial treatment for most astrocytomas is maximal surgical removal. For patients with higher grade gliomas, surgery is typically followed by radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Our highly skilled neurosurgeons have extensive experience in minimally invasive keyhole astrocytoma surgery. Our neuro-oncologists are on the leading edge of targeted astrocytoma therapies, clinical trials and glioma genomic profiling. Our radiation oncologists have extensive experience in treating astrocytomas after initial surgery.  Together our team can design the optimal treatment plan for each patient.
