Central nervous system cancer care

We care for patients who are diagnosed with (or are suspected of having) cancers of the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord.

Our team strives to provide optimal, evidence-based treatment and symptom control through state-of-the art radiation therapy, novel drug therapies and chemotherapy. We use a collaborative multidisciplinary approach to treatment, and we provide state-of-the-art individualized care.

The Canadian Brain Tumour Consortium, headquartered at Sunnybrook, also provides patients increased access to national and internation clinical trials, and conducts multi-centre research.
