Brain Cancer

The world-renowned experts at the OSUCCC – James are transforming the way brain cancers are prevented, detected and treated.

Today, cancer is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage. We know there is no routine cancer, and there is no routine brain cancer.

Brain cancer is a complex disease. Each patient’s cancer is different, behaving differently in the bodies they’re in and calling for a tailored, individualized treatment plan for each patient.

To deliver the most effective brain cancer detection and treatment, our nationally renowned experts identify and understand cancer at the biologic and genetic levels, unlocking the molecular code of a patient’s disease and pinpointing what makes each cancer grow — then discovering what stops it.

Our team of brain cancer subspecialists spans a broad range of disciplines: from neuro-oncologists and radiation oncologists to neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, genetic scientists and more — all specializing in brain cancer (and only brain cancer) research, prevention, detection, treatment and cure.

It’s that subspecialization and singular focus that enable us to discover, develop and deliver the most targeted therapies for each individual brain cancer patient.

And that means our collective expertise leads to improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients everywhere.

Other Brain Cancers

Some brain cancers begin in the brain, while others travel to the brain from other parts of the body. Brain tumors begin as abnormal growths of cells and can be either benign (not cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Benign brain tumors can grow large enough to press on neighboring areas of the brain. These types of tumors are usually removed through surgery and rarely spread to other regions of the body.

Spine Cancer

Bone and spine sarcomas are rare cancers that can start in the spinal chord or tissue surrounding the spine. Osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma are two types of spine cancer. At the OSUCCC – James, we’re transforming the way bone and spine sarcomas are prevented, detected, treated and cured.
