NEUROSURGICAL ONCOLOGY

Christian Bowers, MD; Sara Piccirillo, PhD; Meic H. Schmidt, MD

The Department of Neurosurgery, partnering with colleagues at the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center, treat some of the most complex and difficult brain tumors. When appropriate, our team uses brain mapping and awake brain surgery to preserve memory, movement and speech. We also utilize intraoperative fluoroscopy, laser ablation, and minimally invasive surgical equipment. Our team also offers several new and advanced procedures for spinal cord tumors: decompression and spinal column stabilization, percutaneous cement augmentation, and instrumentation to relieve pain from tumors in the spine.
