Inova Brain and Spine Tumor Program

Our purpose is to treat the full range of brain, spine, and pituitary tumors and provide our patients with the best possible outcomes and quality of life.

Expert diagnosis and treatment of brain and spinal cord tumors

A diagnosis of a tumor is frightening, but there is comfort in knowing that Inova’s Brain and Spine Tumor Program provides you with access to expertise, leading-edge technologies, and national clinical trials for the diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the brain, spine, and pituitary gland. Learn about symptoms, diagnosis and tumor treatments 

Led by Dr. Mateo Ziu, a specialist in neurosurgical oncology, our team includes experts with advanced training in neurosurgical, neurological, and radiation treatment of tumors. We combine the most advanced medical techniques and technology with compassionate and personalized care. We look at each case uniquely and are committed to collaborating closely with the patient, family, the primary care physician, and each other to deliver the best care available with the dignity and respect that everyone deserves.
