Where complex meets compassion

If you’ve received a brain tumor diagnosis, you likely have many questions. Getting a second opinion can be a valuable resource for you and your family to ensure you have the most accurate diagnosis and learn about every treatment option available to you.

Why choose us

Whether you need treatment for a cancerous or noncancerous tumor, our multidisciplinary team can provide the complete spectrum of care you will need to remove as much of the tumor as possible. In addition, you have the resources of The University of Kansas Cancer Center available to you if your tumor is cancerous. The cancer center is 1 of fewer than 60 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the country. Patients treated at an NCI-designated cancer center have a 25% greater chance of survival than patients treated at other cancer centers.

Because The University of Kansas Health System is part of an academic medical center, when you receive care with us you have access to:

  • The largest team of subspecialists, including neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, neuropathologists, neuropsychologists, neuroradiologists and dedicated nurses and other healthcare professionals, who work together to diagnose and treat brain tumors
  • The most experienced and comprehensive skull base tumor team in the region
  • The most current clinical trials
  • The most innovative technology, including the region’s only intraoperative MRI, which reduces complications and increases surgical precision
  • Specialized nurse navigators who will be with you on your entire brain tumor journey
  • The No. 1 hospital in Kansas City, the best hospital in Kansas and the No. 25 neurosciences program in the nation as ranked by U.S. News and World Report

Getting a second opinion doesn’t mean you think your diagnosis is wrong or that you doubt your doctor. It does give you the chance to meet with specialists who can confirm your diagnosis and help you understand your most advanced treatment options.
