The Neuro-oncology Program combines the expertise of neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiation and medical oncologists to offer the latest treatment options for cancer patients. The mission of the program is to further strengthen those services already in place, while exploring pre-eminent advances in tumor treatment.

The Neuro-oncology Program remains the only one of its kind in the state of Indiana, focusing on patients with primary and metastatic tumors of the brain and spine. The program is exceptional in its ability to integrate all aspects of care, including chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Specialists in the Neuro-oncology Program may recommend three-dimensional radiotherapy, autologous bone marrow transplants for certain tumors, or surgical implantation of polymer wafers impregnated with large doses of chemotherapy.
