Neuro-oncology is the study and treatment of cancers and neoplasms in the brain and spinal cord. Examples include astrocytoma, glioma, glioblastoma, muliforme, ependymoma, pontine glioma, and brain stem tumors. Trained oncologic neurosurgeons will treat these conditions by removing as much of the tumor mass as possible without harming vital functions or impairing cognitive abilities.
