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.
