In today’s Podcast, Dr. Tejas Sankar, Neurosurgeon at the University of Alberta, is going to discuss one of the most important topics in neurosurgery, adult brain tumors.
After listening to this podcast you will be able to:
- Discuss the typical signs and symptoms that we see in patients suffering from brain tumors. These are important because they are often shared in common with other neurological conditions, and recognizing them promptly can lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment.
- Understand how to confirm the diagnosis of a brain tumor.
- Talk about a general approach to classifying brain tumors. This is important in helping to sort through the very large number of different brain tumor types.
- Broadly discuss how adult brain tumors are treated, and what some of the expected outcomes are.
