Back to Neurological Surgery in Winnipeg



The problem of brain tumours at the University of Manitoba is handled by a multidisciplinary approach including neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, radiation oncologists, neuropathologists and a dedicated support team of oncologic nurses and social workers. Within CancerCare Manitoba, basic research is being carried out into the causes of cancer and we are involved in many clinical research protocols for the treatment of various types of brain tumours.

A Multidisciplinary Clinic discusses each referred case for planning adjuvant strategies. We have available, the most modern diagnostic equipment including CT scanning, MRI scanning and Intraoperative Ultrasound. We have both frame and frameless technology for localizing brain tumours in the operating room. We have a full range of modern operative equipment for tumour biopsy and removal. We are a member of the Canadian Brain Tumour Consortium, which gives us access to the newest experimental techniques both surgical and non-surgical in the treatment of primary brain tumours. Our medical team is constantly updating their knowledge base by attending dedicated brain tumour conferences.
