Dear deeds:

I’m sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis. It’s a difficult and confusing time and I’m sure you are feeling a range of emotions. Each year around 35,000 individuals are diagnosed with a tumor that originates in the brain.

Generally speaking, you will want to select a Neurosurgeon that you and your family feels comfortable with, and a hospital that can provide you with the most treatment options.

Dr. Steven Brem, a Penn Neurosurgeon specializes in brain tumors. He sees patients at Hospital of University of Pennsylvania and leads the Penn Brain Tumor Center, which delivers a collaborative team approach to providing advanced therapy for benign brain tumors (as well as malignant tumors and metastatic cancer that spreads to the brain). The entire Penn Brain Tumor Team provides a circle of exceptional care for brain tumor patients and their families – offering counseling and support throughout the entire process.

Dr. Brem has performed more than 3,600 brain tumor surgeries and participated in more than 100 clinical trials. He received the 2012 Joel A. Gingras, Jr. award from the American Brain Tumor Association for his advancement in the understanding and treatment of brain tumors.

To learn more about Dr. Brem, or to speak with a Penn nurse to talk about the next steps in your treatment, please follow this link:


Hope this helps. Best of luck in your treatment and recovery.
