One of the most common types of brain tumors, meningiomas grow on the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord (called meninges). These tumors are usually benign and relatively slow growing, though more aggressive forms also exist. As these tumors grow, they can put pressure on the brain and important surrounding structures, causing neurological problems. Our team of Duke experts work together daily to provide the most advanced treatments currently available to remove the meningioma and relieve any neurological symptoms you may be experiencing.
