Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Clinical Team
UF Pediatric Neurosurgery

UF Health Pediatric Neurosurgery Banner

Every child and his or her family members will meet with a brain tumor specialist, usually at the neurosurgery outpatient practice. After a detailed discussion of the options and risks, treatment will be scheduled. If a surgical or radio-surgical procedure is needed, it will be performed at the patient’s convenience within one week.

The case will be presented to our weekly brain tumor board when members of the clinical team will gather to review the case in detail and formulate the most personalized treatment plan for additional therapy.
