Now Scheduling Telehealth Appointments

As part of Orange County's leading health system, Hoag offers a unique multi-modality diagnostic and treatment program for patients suffering from benign and malignant brain tumors. The combined comprehensive resources available at the Hoag Family Cancer Institute and the Pickup Family Neurosciences institute deliver a best practice, integrated care setting, with access to the latest clinical trials. Each specific type of tumor is addressed with the particular patient’s situation in mind.

Our multidisciplinary team of brain tumor specialists is committed to providing the most effective and advanced diagnostic imaging studies (including the only PET/MRI instrument in Orange County), 3D-guided surgical techniques which can be planned with simulated through virtual reality prior to surgery, options for clinical research trials, and management strategies for each patient.

Experience, expertise and highly advanced technology, including two dedicated operating rooms equipped with the newest tools available anywhere is what sets our brain tumor program apart. The Hoag team offers a depth of experience not easily matched. And while many hospitals offer open craniotomy stereo-tactic radiosurgery and conventional chemo, our clinicians specialize not only in surgical brain tumor management, but Gamma Knife, Cyberknife, conformal focused radiation therapy, as well as advanced chemo and immunotherapy, and are therefore uniquely equipped to approach each case with an unbiased opinion regarding treatment modality.

The Pickup Family Neurosciences institute at Hoag is also home to the county’s leading dedicated Pituitary and Skull Base Tumor Program‚Äč, offering the most advanced care for one of the most sub-specialized areas of neurosurgery.
