Brain tumors come in many forms, and they can be some of the most complicated diseases to treat.

The good news is that researchers, like Dr. Jeffrey Bruce, from the Bartoli Brain Tumor Lab, have made significant gains in recent years and brain tumor management offers more hope than ever before.

To highlight the latest findings and their clinical implications, Dr. Bruce is once again directing Advances in Brain Tumor Management, a symposium for neurosurgeons to be held at Columbia’s Neurological Institute in early June. This annual course coincides with the annual NeuroCharity Softball Tournament and is well attended by neurosurgeons from across the country.

“As neurosurgeons, the importance of aggressive and safe surgical treatment of these complex lesions, followed by targeted and directed radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and other therapies has never been greater. This symposium will provide a timely update on these important topics,” says Dr. Bruce.

Dr. Bruce’s symposium will be held Friday, June 6, 2014 from 5-7 pm in the Neurological Institute on the campus of Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Dr. Bruce is the Edgar M. Housepian Professor of Neurological Surgery, Vice Chairman of Academic Affairs, Director of the Bartoli Brain Tumor Research Laboratory, and Co-Director of the Brain Tumor Center at Columbia University Medical Center/ New York Presbyterian Hospital. He is a leading authority in the neurosurgical treatment of complex brain tumors.
