Anderson Cancer Center and has a special interest in primary and metastatic tumors of the brain and spine.
Utilizing special imaging and surgical techniques, Dr. Aizenberg is able to resect tumors in eloquent areas of the brain in ways to help prevent neurologic deficits. By individualized care, the best approach is determined for each patient so that they have maximal outcome. She works closely with radiation oncologists, neuro-oncologists, oncologists, neuroradiologists, neuropathologists, and neuropsychologists to provide the most comprehensive care for oncology patients. With this multi-disciplinary approach, comprehensive Neuro-Oncology care can be provided for patients with central nervous system tumors.

What does this mean?
Some physicians cannot accept direct patient appointments based on the nature of their work. In order to provide timely, quality service in the certain areas, physicians must be assigned to patients based on their availability and the nature of the case, rather than a patient’s personal preference.
