How our brain and spine cancer research helps you.

Being part of an Academic Medical Center—the University of Rochester Medical Center—puts us at the leading edge of care. We are the only research center in the area that is actively developing new treatments for brain and spine cancer.

In most cases, a traditional treatment is the best option for our patients. But should you require another approach, it is encouraging to know that we offer more clinical trials than any other center in Western New York.
