Neurosurgeon David W. Andrews, MD, director of the Division of Neuro-Oncologic Neurosurgery and Stereotactic Radiosurgery recently appeared on the WMCN’s show “Dawn” to discuss new developments in brain cancer research and treatment.

On November 1, Jefferson is hosting a symposium on innovations in brain tumor therapy. Physicians from around the world are expected to attend to discuss leading edge treatments and the latest breakthroughs in brain tumor treatment, including focused ultrasound.

“Surgery remains important,” Dr. Andrews explains. “The more we can remove safely the more effective the subsequent treatments are.”

Dr. Andrews was accompanied by an advocate and brain cancer survivor to discuss The Race for Hope co-sponsored by Jefferson to raise money for brain cancer research and care. The race takes place on Sunday, November 3 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. All proceeds go towards the fight against brain cancer.
