At the Division of Neuro-Oncology, we strive to provide compassionate and state-of-the-art clinical care for patients with primary and metastatic brain cancers. We treat patients at the John Wayne Cancer Institute at
Providence Saint John’s Health Center along with our team at Pacific Brain Tumor Center.
We aim to develop and bring novel therapeutics to patients with brain cancers. We have innovative clinical trials for patients with primary brain tumors like glioblastoma. We also have clinical trials for patients with cancer that have metastasized to the brain from the periphery (for instance, from the breast, prostate, melanoma, etc.).
