Specialized Care for Brain Tumors

When it comes to treating rare and challenging brain tumors or neurologic disorders, patients are often referred to the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute and UF Health Jacksonville’s Skull Base Center. Here, a team of highly trained and experienced specialists collaborate to treat patients. The combination of advanced technology and doctors who are surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and radiologists who have specific training in the brain and central nervous system makes the center a unique medical resource in the region. Ronny Rotondo, MD, CM, FRCPC, who directs the proton therapy brain tumor program, and Daryoush Tavanaiepour, MD, who directs the Skull Base Center, recently sat down for an interview about skull base tumors.
