Most patients are frightened and overwhelmed after hearing that they have a brain tumor. The team at the Piedmont Brain Tumor Center is here to help you navigate through the maze of information that is given to you.
A multidisciplinary approach is taken and coordinates your care with a variety of medical personnel from different medical specialties that help diagnose and recommend the best treatment for your particular problem.
Treatment for a brain tumor varies from person to person. When discussing the diagnosis with your doctor it is important that you understand what type of tumor you have. Feel free to take notes or bring someone along to listen.
Our website provides a number of resources to help you find the answers to your questions and locate information specific to your diagnosis such as websites, periodicals, books and other resources.
We also have a Brain Tumor Center Clinical Coordinator who will help guide you through the process. She may recommend that you attend the Brain Tumor Support Group or refer you to other sources of information.
The Piedmont Brain Tumor Center will help you find and understand the information that you need to make an informed decision about your care.
Your team is focused on helping each individual patient remain just that: an individual.
