Brain Tumor Treatment Strategy

There can be many unknowns when it comes to malignant brain tumors.  Neurosurgeon Frank Culicchia, M. D. works closely with Neuro-oncologist Aaron Mammoser  of LSU Neuro-oncology to diagnose and treat brain tumors.  Dr. Mammoser treats patients locally and conducts clinical research trials in the field of neuro-oncology.

Dr. Culicchia, chairman of LSU Neurosurgery, has found that the most effective treatment strategy is an aggressive one, where patients are seen at least every three months.  Keeping a watchful eye on the growth of a brain tumor, Dr. Culicchia says, is critical in the battle against cancer.
