Conditions We Treat

At Baptist Health, we treat cancerous tumors within the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS includes the brain, spinal cord and associated nerves.

Our team works with Baptist Health Cancer Care to treat primary and secondary brain and spinal cord tumors.

A primary brain tumor is a cancerous tumor that originates inside the brain.

A secondary brain and spinal cord tumor also called a metastatic brain or spine tumor – is cancer that develops elsewhere in the body and travels to the brain or spinal cord.

CNS cancers we treat include:
