Our Mission & Philosophy

Mission: The University of Rochester Program for Brain Tumors and Spinal Tumors will be the world leader in the invention, development, and delivery of compassionate, innovative, and effective care for patients afflicted with cancer of the nervous system.

Philosophy: We are a resource for our patients to help them fight their disease. We work as a team to recommend the best therapies and to adapt promising new technologies and approaches as soon as they become available. We are encouraged by advances in basic science research at the University of Rochester and within the medical community at large, and strive to partner with our patients to translate these findings into better outcomes for everyone.
